Parents Anonymous® Inc. and the California State Parent Team will be working in collaboration with the California State Department of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention to sponsor the Third Annual Statewide Parent Leadership Conference during National Parent Leadership Month and tentatively planning to hold the event in Ontario on Friday February 26, 2010 from 9 am to 4 pm.  The conference will focus on building partnerships between parents and professionals to strengthen programs and policies for children and families throughout California.

The team is currently developing a Planning Committee which would include parent and professional representation from across the state to help plan, coordinate and publicize the conference.  Members of the Planning Committee would participate in 1 face-to-face meeting and 3 to 4 follow-up teleconference calls. The team will also need to create some working committees (e.g. publicity committee, workshop abstracts committee, etc.).

The first face to face Planning Committee Meeting is on Wednesday July 8th from 10 am to 2 pm at the Double tree Hotel located near the Ontario Airport at 222 North Vineyard Avenue, Ontario, California  91764.
