NCFR is composed of ten Sections, each with a particular area of emphasis. These member groups provide communication through listservs and web page announcements on topics of specific interest to you. Many presentations at the Annual Conference are determined by section submission, review, and sponsorship. Leadership positions and volunteer opportunities include becoming an officer, a proposal reviewer, or focus group leader.
State/regional and student affiliate councils give NCFR a local flavor. Stay in touch with members in your area through conferences, events, and communications. Plus, 20 student affiliates offer a great option to build your resume and connect your academic experience to real-world opportunities.
NCFR Report, the member magazine, is published quarterly and features a “Family Focus” section with contributed articles on key topics.
