SECFR Conference 2017

Thank you all for attending the Southeastern Council on Family Relations 2017 Conference!

We appreciate everyone who attended and made the conference a success.  Our Keynote Plenary Speaker, Dr. Sharon Ballard, has graciously allowed us to post the PowerPoint from her presentation.  That can be found below.  The Conference Program is also still accessible, as is information on the Service Projects that SECFR sponsored as part of the conference.

Service Projects

SECFR sponsored two Service Projects as part of the conference.  For one of the Service Projects, conference attendees brought books for a bilingual preschool to the Conference, and for the other project, individuals could donate online to a nonprofit organization.  You are still able to donate online to the nonprofit organization.  Click the following link for more information about the Service Projects: Conference Service Projects.
