What is the World Congress on Adult Guardianship?

The World Congress is an international gathering of those involved in guardianship. Participants come from around the world 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.

Why Should You Attend?

Anyone who is involved with guardianship regularly faces challenges at some point. The World Congresses present shared problems from new perspectives and offer ideas and solutions from multiple viewpoints, cultures and guardianship systems.
