Posting to give families a bit of history of what our conferences have been like for the last 10 years so you have somewhat of an idea what to expect at not just our conference, but all CDH conferences now (we love teaching others!).   BUT how we set up our Dublin conference will be NEW and not public knowledge until closer to the date.   We like being ORIGINAL and creative and are very excited to work with MANY other charities in ACDHO in the first truly European CDH Conference!  Stay tuned!  :)
