Update: March 26, 2020: This event has been canceled.

It is with a heavy heart that the Family Science Association announces the need to cancel the 2020 Teaching Family Science Conference planned for June 1st and 2nd. This decision was made in accordance with the Center for Disease Control guidelines and latest research on how professional organizations and community groups can help to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Those who have already paid conference registration fees can submit a request for a refund using this form: https://forms.gle/UCc13aqnc2e9n6TP6. The refund will be processed as quickly as possible. Please e-mail FSA Secretary Adam Clark ([email protected]) with any questions or concerns you may have so he can forward your query to the best outlet.

We look forward to seeing you at our next business meeting in St. Louis, and at next year's conference in South Dakota. More information about the 2021 conference will be sent in the coming months!

Best wishes for a healthy spring and summer,
