Planning is underway for the 2019 Families Learning Conference, held Monday, Nov. 4 to Wednesday, Nov. 6! This year’s Conference will bring an extra dose of excitement for attendees as the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) will be celebrating our 30th anniversary, and bringing the conference home to Louisville, Kentucky.

The mission of the Families Learning Conference is to equip educators, program staff, librarians, parent leaders, and others with best practices, strategies, and resources to help families succeed in accomplishing their educational goals. To achieve this mission, NCFL is calling on our network and peers to submit presentation proposals reflecting best practices in engaging families in education.

This Call for Proposals closes 11:59 pm PST Friday, March 1, 2019.

Detailed information, including key dates, content strands, selection criteria, and presenter requirements, can be found at

Lead presenters enjoy several perks, including half off the regular Conference registration fee; the opportunity to highlight their success in front of a national audience; and the chance to enhance their work by learning from others in our field.
