Other Important Dates

From the Executive Director

 

KAAN leadersWelcome … thanks for spending time on our site. KAAN was founded in 1998 to connect and serve the community. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit that provides affordable, meaningful annual conferences and ongoing resources and information. These conferences move to a new location each year, engaging the local community as well as a core of loyal attendees. There is no substitute for gathering together for dialogue, education, and support. Over the years we have improved our conference structure to provide space for the entire community to interact as well as for boundaries to be respected, especially for adoptees.

 

In a world that is increasingly polarized, finding common ground is essential. We can do so much for each other. Take time to think about what you need and what you can give … then get involved!

 

In Friendship,

   Stacy Schroeder
