About the NCFR Annual Conference

The Premier Research Conference Focused on Families

Each year, over a thousand faculty, researchers, students, and family professionals present cutting-edge work and make valuable professional connections at the annual conference of NCFR — the premier professional association for understanding and strengthening families through interdisciplinary research, theory, and practice.

Connection is a hallmark of NCFR conferences — often referred to as the “Family Reunion” of Family Science — a place where students form career-spanning relationships with colleagues and where professionals from across many disciplines and nationalities converge to learn from each other.

Conference presenters and attendees come from the disciplines of Family Science, human development, sociology, psychology, demography, social work, family therapy, and more.
