Private Agency Members

We invite you to join us as a private member agency of The Adoption Exchange. With a membership, you and your staff will be able to participate in quarterly networking webinars, an annual membership meeting, and include your home-studied, waiting families in our child matching events. Additionally, your agency will enjoy a priority listing in our membership directory on The Exchange’s website, and you will have access to resources and information from Voice for Adoption, a national advocacy agency based in Washington D.C.  Through these benefits you will also be able to network with colleagues, garner resources and stay current on trends, national policies and/or legislation impacting the field, as well as the latest research on best practices in adoption. An annual membership fee is $150 per agency.

If you are interested in becoming a member of The Adoption Exchange, please contact Melody Roe at 800-451-5246.
