Mark Your Calendars: SECFR Announces Conference

Please make plans to join the members and friends of the Southeastern Council on Family Relations, March 3-4 2011 at what promises to be an invigorating annual conference in Birmingham, Alabama. Confirmed speakers include NCFR President Gary Bowen, Steve Duncan, Rozario Slack, H. Wallace (Wally) Goddard, Nisa Muhammad, and Kay Pasley. The theme of the conference is “We Shall Overcome: Changing the Status Quo for Families in the Southeast,” a timely theme that focuses attention on the need for positive change in our region which lags considerably behind the rest of the nation on most important social indicators.

In addition to a full slate of outstanding speakers, the latest research and current thinking being generated by professionals around the Southeast will be presented and there will be multiple opportunities for socializing, networking, and earning CEUs. Professionals of all varieties – not just academics – are invited to participate.

For more details about the conference, submissions, registration, as well as all the great things to do and see around the Magic City, please visit our website or contact the conference/program chair Kim Allen at

We hope to see you in Birmingham!
