The 2021 AAFCS Virtual Conference, June 16-18, will bring togetherness once again with hundreds of family and consumer sciences professionals, colleagues and friends! In addition to adding an extra day to the conference this year, there is another bonus!  We will be hosting a pre-conference session on June 15.

You won't want to miss the June 16 opening general session! It’s your chance to learn how a winner from the ABC reality-TV show, "Shark Tank," navigated her way thru the media.


Did you miss the #FCSsuccess Campaign Event on March 19?

No worries! You can view the recording of Activating Advocacy with a Meeting-in-a Box on-demand here. The session included an overview of advocacy, ready to use tools and resources, advocacy success in Georgia and suggestions for building your own meeting-in-a-box. One Professional Development Unit is available to participants by request.
