Register Now: 2021 Conference

Conference 2021


The 2021 Caring for the Human Spirit® Conference and
Westberg Symposium will be a VIRTUAL conference

We are happy to announce that next year's conference and symposium will take place virtually. Given the current pandemic our country is experiencing, we felt that it would be in everyone's best interest to host our annual conference virtually. Having experienced an incredibly successful virtual conference in 2020, we are excited to build upon that success and bring you another robust virtual experience in 2021. The 2021 conference registration and kick off will launch in late September. Stay tuned for more information. For now, please save the date: April 12 - 14, 2021.
