The 32nd Annual Adult Protective Services Conference

Protecting all generations, from the "Greatest" to the latest, with Purpose, Passion and Persistence

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) is pleased to announce that the 32nd annual Adult Protective Service Conference will be held in South Padre Island, TX on November 10-13, 2015. Join us for the premier APS Conference, as you learn from some of the most distinguished leaders in protecting our most vulnerable citizens.

This year, we have the honor of observing Veteran's Day during the conference. While we gather for this event, we must take the time to remember the sacrifices of those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and have afforded us the freedom we enjoy.

We owe a special debt to those of the "Greatest Generation". Let us continue to learn and grow our skills to better serve our community and to protect all generations, from the Greatest to the latest, with purpose, passion and persistence.
