Each year, the National Compassionate Friends organization hosts a multi-day conference in a different city around the country. These conferences are excellent sources of information and reinforce the connection shared by bereaved families across the country. The conference typcially draws over 1,000 attendees and features several keynote addresses and dozens of workshops. Due COVID19, the 2020 conference will be held virtually on July 31-August 2, 2020. It will feature keynote speakers, over 70 workshops and much more. Early bird registration fee is $65 by July 17; $85 thereafter. Details are available on the National Organization’s website at https://www.compassionatefriends.org/event/43rd-tcf-national-conference/
