Preconference Workshops

Add preconference workshops when you register for the conference, or register for a preconference only. Here's the 2019 preconference lineup:

If you've already registered for full-conference or single-day conference participation, you can still add a preconference to your registration later if space allows.

Continuing Education (CE) & Verification of Attendance

NBCC CE Verification: NCFR is an approved provider of continuing education for NBCC, the National Board for Certified Counselors. The 2019 conference is approved for up to 18.5 NBCC credits. Add NBCC CE Verification to your conference registration at $25 for NCFR members and $50 for nonmembers.

Verification of Conference Attendance (for any attendee, including CFLEs): Add Verification of Conference Attendance to your conference registration if you would like to have your conference attendance verified. $25 for NCFR members, $50 for nonmembers. This option is available to Certified Family Life Educators (CFLEs) if desired for their own records; NCFR does not require CFLEs to submit CE verification. CFLEs can earn up to 20.5 CFLE credits through conference attendance.

Certificates for NBCC and for Verification of Conference Attendance will be sent after your conference verification paperwork is reviewed by NCFR.

National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP 5984. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. NCFR is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.

Cancellations and Refunds

Refund requests must be submitted in writing and posted by Oct. 17, 2019. No refunds after Oct. 17. No refunds for special events, workshops, or preconference events unless the event is canceled. All refunds are subject to an administrative processing fee of $50 ($30 for student registrations). Please email Sue Baker, NCFR's accounting manager, about any cancellation/refund requests. 

In the event that NCFR must cancel an annual conference due to low enrollment, inclement weather, or other circumstances that would make the event non-viable, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in the postponement of the conference, NCFR has the right to either issue a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at a new, future date.
