The 2014 World Congress on Adult Guardianship is being held in Arlington, Virginia, on Wednesday – Friday, May 28 – 30, 2014. Provided below is a description of this event:
The World Congress is an international gathering of those involved in guardianship. Participants come from Europe, Asia and North America and represent academics, attorneys, court officials, disability advocates, fiduciaries, government officials, guardians, judges, and public trustees/guardians.
Each World Congress offers opportunities to learn and collaborate by bringing together those involved in adult guardianship, as well as aging, disability and elder rights from around the globe. The first World Congress focusing on guardianship law was held in Yokohama, Japan in 2010, which issued the Yokohama Declaration. The second World Congress was held in 2012 in Melbourne, Australia. The third one will be held Wednesday, May 28 through Friday, May 30 in the Washington, DC metro area.
Special thanks to Lewis Saret for bringing this event to my attention.
