NCFR's Education Section Updates Its Name and Purpose

Members of the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) have the opportunity to connect and communicate through its 10 sections, each formed around professional interest topics. Section participation provides opportunities for conference participation, leadership and service, awards, and more.

NCFR's section devoted to the effectiveness of Family Life Education methods, materials, and process has updated its name and renewed its purpose. The section members held a vote and decided that the former Education and Enrichment Section, will now be known as the Family and Community Education Section (FCE).

The section supports and unites the members of NCFR who are involved with and interested in the translation of research into effective community education and engagement for individuals, couples, and families. The purpose of the section is to encourage dialogue and share evidence-informed resources about methods, materials, programs, and processes for enriching and improving the lives of individuals, couples, and families across the life course.

The FCE Section's new direction will be reflected in the 2022 NCFR Annual Conference Call for Proposals. The next submission period will begin in late January and close on March 1, 2022.

NCFR members may add sections to their membership at any time. Learn more.
