Standards and Practices Committee

The purpose of the Standards and Practice committee is to help define what strong standards for adoption are, and to establish a means of sharing that information with member agencies of the council. Also, when appropriate, to share that information with consumers of adoption services.

The goal of the committee is to help all agencies and practitioners to achieve a high level of service and to promote good adoption practice benefiting consumers and providers alike.The Standards and Practices Committee has completed a best practice guide to adoption services in Utah available in in the link below.

The committee meets the second Tuesday of each month from 9am to 10am.​
