The 31st Annual Adult Protective Services Conference

The Art of Hope: Protecting with Purpose, Passion and Persistence

The 31st Annual APS Conference is the premier and longest running Adult Protective Services Conference in the United States. This internationally respected conference has served thousands of attendees who work and protect elderly populations and people with disabilities in all facets of life. We have no doubt you and your agency will find many topics of interest and benefit.

Each year bankers, lawyers, social workers, nurses, doctors, police officers, insurance investigators, counselors, home health agents, and of course Adult Protective Service investigators gather in San Antonio to learn from the many presenters who are among the best and brightest in their field.

This year we are working with the Art from The Streets organization to highlight their artists and their artwork. The mission of Art from the Streets is to provide a safe and encouraging environment in which the positive spirit of homeless and formerly homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression, and to provide them with a source of pride and income through the sale of their work.  Please stop by the Art from the Streets exhibit area during the conference.

We hope to see you there!
