Important Dates 2020:

March 1: Ally Sponsor registration opens. 
 
The 2020 St. Louis County Health & Human Services Conference “And Still We Rise” will take place on Wednesday October 7th and Thursday October 8th in a virtual format.  We have been monitoring the COVID Crisis on a daily basis and the situation continues to be fluid, constantly moving and creating a great deal of uncertainty.  So with this in mind, we did some inverted thinking and asked “what can we deliver with certainty?”....Why a Virtual Conference of Course!  One that is full of new ideas, knowledge sharing, and great vendors.  We will have over 65 workshops and live stream of the Keynote presentation! 
 
We are finalizing our Web Platform and registration will be available soon, so check back for updates! The Conference Theme “And Still We Rise” was selected prior to the COVID Crisis and it now has taken on even deeper meaning.  
  

Thank you to our 2020 Champion, Advocate and Ally Sponsors
