2021 Conference News

May 14, 2020

To our Dup 15q Families,


Greetings to you! What a moment in time! We hope your families are staying happy and healthy. COVID-19 does not change our mission to provide family support and as such we are moving forward in planning our 2021 Family Conference.  We are so excited to see such a great response in volunteers for the 2021 conference! We are reaching out to our entire Alliance Community to see if you would like to join in the efforts for another successful conference.


The conference committee works together to make decisions about the conference such as family dinner, group outing, activities, vendors, shirt design, raffle and plenty more. We meet monthly on a conference call to go over updates and share new information with the group.

We understand that the Conference Committee may not be for all, but if there is something that you are more interested in, please take the time to look into which one is right for you.  Thank you so much for your interest and willingness to donate your time to making 2021 the best \conference yet!

I look forward to hearing from you.
