At this time, we are excited to announce that the 2021 Families Learning Conference is scheduled for Oct. 25-27 in Dallas! While we will continue to monitor future COVID-19 developments, we look forward to hosting the nation’s premier event for family literacy and family learning practitioners once again this year.

Each year, the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) enlists the country’s family engagement experts to present best practices, strategies, and resources to help families succeed in accomplishing their educational and economic goals.

NCFL is seeking proposals reflecting highly interactive and engaging presentations that include strategies or materials attendees can use right away in their classrooms or programs.

This Call for Proposals closes 11:59 pm PST Thursday, March 25, 2021.

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

Lead presenters enjoy a variety of perks, including:

  • a discounted Conference registration fee;
  • a speaker profile page on the Conference website and mobile app;
  • the opportunity to highlight their work in front of a national audience; and
  • the chance to enhance their own skills by learning from other experts in our field.

We invite you to share best practices from your community while highlighting your organization to a national audience by applying to become a Families Learning Conference presenter!
