About Our Conference
The New England Fathering Conference (NEFC) was initiated in Massachusetts in 1999 and was held there annually until the Planning Committee decided to rotate the event around the New England region every two years. We’ve continued hosting successful conferences in Connecticut (2008, 2009 and again in 2016 and 2017), Rhode Island (2010, 2011, 2014 and 2015) and Maine (2012 and 2013), each with 300-400 attendees and presenters from across New England and beyond! We then brought the conference to Springfield Massachusetts for 2018 and 2019, highlighting how our work with fathers supports the legacy they are creating for their children and celebrating our 20th annual event. For March 2020, we are very excited to be returning to Newport, Rhode Island with the theme: Focus on Dads! A 20/20 Vision.
Greetings! The 21st annual New England Fathering Conference will be in Newport, Rhode Island on March 18th, 19th and 20th, 2020! This year's conference theme is Focus on Dads! A 20/20 Vision.
The call for papers has ended and the Planning
Committee is busy reviewing workshop proposals.
Please check back in mid-December for a list of
workshops and complete registration information.
We are fortunate to have experts and leaders in the field of work with fathers, families and the systems that care for them to present
at our conference this year. Our keynote presenters are specially selected to speak on topics of importance to fathers
and graciously attend our conference to inform and inspire the agencies that work with them.
