The COVA Conference is the largest victim services field conference in the country and draws over 1,000 attendees to Keystone, CO every year. Over the course of four days, participants learn new skills, up-to-date information and laws, and best practices for the victim services field in 72+ workshops. Last year we had over 1,000 attendees from State of Colorado government agencies, district attorney offices, law enforcement, field professionals, victim advocacy/non-profit groups, victims and survivors, and more.
