Best Friends National Conference

You’re invited: Best Friends National Conference

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2017 Best Friends National Conference in Atlantic City.

Next year, we’re taking this lifesaving extravaganza to the West Coast. Please mark your calendars for the 2018 Best Friends National Conference in Los Angeles, July 19–21.

Registration opens in early 2018. You can find more information here
