Conferences

We held our first conference in 1993 in St. Louis, Missouri. It was attended by over 250 people, including about 50 children with CHARGE.

Since then, the biennial conference has grown in its significance and impact, attracting over 1,200Large audience clapping at conference individuals at its most recent 2015 conference in Schaumburg, Illinois. Roughly half of the attendees were first-timers, new parents and professionals who were just coming to grips with how to deal with the myriad of medical and developmental issues facing their child.

Parents have described the conference as a rite of passage, a place to meet and network with others facing the same challenges, learn from professionals (medical, clinical and educational), and leave better informed about how to help their child. The Foundation’s board of directors (a working board) organizes all the activities related to the conference without the assistance of an event management firm.

We continue holding CHARGE conferences every two years with rotating geographic locations.
