CFLE Conversations: One-Hour Online Networking Sessions

January 30, 2024 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Free for CFLEs
Online via Zoom

All active Certified Family Life Educators (CFLEs) are invited to attend a series of one-hour online networking sessions that will provide an opportunity for CFLEs who work in specific areas (healthcare, military, Extension, early childhood, hospice, schools, adoption/foster care, aging services, parenting education, and more), to connect with each other. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss challenges and successes and to share ideas, tips, and advice.

“I always leave these groups feeling excited and energized!”
- Stacey Taylor, CFLE-P

“It has been great to connect with others in the CFLE field and those specifically working with domestic violence survivors, marginalized populations, and those doing home visits. My formal education was excellent and still, there are some things we can only learn in the field. What a wonderful resource we have with our CFLE Conversations.”
- Kimberly Leach, CFLE-P

Seats at each conversation are limited to about 15 to keep the group small and facilitate discussion.
