23rd Annual New England Fathering Conference (NEFC)

March 15-17, 2023 ~ Newport Marriott Hotel

Registration Fee - $300 (Early Bird Registration $250 offered until 5:00pm January 31, 2023)


Welcome! We are excited to be returning to host our annual event in-person in the Spring of 2023! We are proud to invite you to participate in two and a half days of learning and sharing. This conference reflects our understanding that every father leaves an indelible mark on his child’s life. Involved fathers positively affect their significant others, spouses, co-parents, and family members as much as they do their children. The best formula for raising healthy, happy children is parents working together to meet their needs. As in the past, the conference features a diverse array of talented speakers and presenters who will inspire and challenge us.

Please direct questions about registration to Diana DiTunno at (860) 424-5997, or diana.ditunno@ct.gov
