Submit a proposal for the 2017 NCFR Annual Conference

Thu, 02/09/2017

Submit your proposal by March 1 for the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) 2017 Annual Conference, planned for Nov. 15-18 in Orlando, Florida. The conference theme is “Families as Catalysts: Shaping Neurons, Neighborhoods, and Nations.”

In today’s society, much of the dialogue about families focuses on the economic and social “costs” of families. The 2017 NCFR Annual Conference will turn the tide on that notion, highlighting research, teaching, and practices that illustrate how families serve as catalysts to create and support healthy children, neighborhoods, communities, and societies. Possible presentation formats include papers, posters, roundtables, symposia, workshops, poster symposia, and lightning paper sessions.

Submit your proposal online by 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Find more details about the conference and proposal submission at
