Each new year brings us a fresh slate of conferences to consider. Which ones are you attending this year? As I look at my 2020 calendar, I've been thinking a lot about conferences. Are they worth attending? What would an 'ideal' conference could look like? How can we get the most out of a conference? We'll get to those topics in another post, but let's just start with a list of many of the national conferences that might be worth your time this year. I've included links to the programs if available:
International Neuropsychological Society, February 5-8, Denver CO Note: The International Cancer and Cognition Task Force (ICCTF) holds its conference right before INS at the same location: see here for details
Learning Disabilities Association, February 17-20, Orlando FL
National Association of School Psychologists, February 18-21, Baltimore MD
Butters-Kaplan West Coast Neuropsychology Conference, March 19-22, San Diego CA
Society for Personality Assessment, March 25-29, San Diego CA Note: it's a little hard to see the program, but if you "start" the registration process, you'll be able to see the agenda
School Neuropsychology Conference, March 25-27, Savannah GA
American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology, April 24-26, Las Vegas NV
American Psychological Society, May 21-24, Chicago IL
Society for Research and Child Development: Learning Through Play and Imagination, May 28-29, St. Louis MO
American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology, June 10-13, Washington DC
Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment Institute Conference, June 18-20, Denver CO Note: I don't know how to see the agenda
Division of Early Childhood's Conference on Young Children with Special Needs and their Families, October 20-23, Minneapolis MN Note: 2020 Program is not available yet, but you can look at 2019
I'd love to update this list if you know of great conferences I missed.
BTW, I'll be attending the AAPdN Conference in April and the AACN Conference in June so if you'll be at one of those, give me a holler.
Share in the comments what conferences you're attending, whether you think they're worth it, and what your ideal conference topics would be!
