The Conference is now virtual

2021 Annual IARCA Conference - September 15 and 16

Jump to: General info; schedule; workshop descriptions; registration

UPDATE: Due to the increasing transmission of COVID-19, hospitalizations in Central Indiana, and strain on our colleagues in the health care industry, IARCA has made the difficult decision to transition our conference to a virtual platform. Registrations fees have been adjusted (two days; $75 for members and $100 for non-members) and cover access to all live virtual workshops on Sept 15 and 16 and all recorded workshops on demand through the end of 2021. Training hours and CEHs will be available for all applicable live and on demand workshops.

2020 State of the Association

Every year as part of our Annual Members' Meeting, we produce a State of the Association to update our members and partners on IARCA's work. Our 2020 publication covers a number of areas, including our collective advocacy on behalf of children and families, the rollout on Outcomes 2020, and new and updated programming. Take a look and let us know if you have any questions.

Information on COVID 19/coronavirus

IARCA is in regular communication with IN DCS and Indiana State Department of Health staff about updates on coronavirus preparation. We are also gathering information from other states, the federal government, and subject matter experts that we think might be helpful in preparing children, families, and staff for coronavirus preparedness. We will maintain and update a list of announcements and resources for the foreseeable future.

IARCA Member Resource Directory

IARCA's Member Resource Directory of Services for Children and Families is a great way to find out which of our members are providing services you need. You can download the July 2021 Guide which includes all members and services in our database or you can use our online directory where you can limit your search by things like region or service.
