Fatherhood Summit Registration is Now Open

We are thrilled to announce that registration for the 2018 Washington Fatherhood Summit is now open! The Summit will be held on June 5th and 6th in the Brockey Center at South Seattle College.  You have been identified as someone who will bring an amazing wealth of knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm to this two-day opportunity to work together around a statewide plan of action to strengthen fatherhood programs, leadership, systems, and policies; we hope that you can join us!  Please see the registration link below for details about the 2-day Summit and hotel block information. 

If there is an individual or a small group of folks from your local community, agency, or field of practice who you really want to make sure we get in the room, please forward this announcement.  There are a limited number of seats available, so please be thinking about folks who will be excited about doing the work to create a plan when you are sharing this exciting opportunity.  This is not an invitation that you would want to send out to broad list serves but rather targeted invitations to folks you really want to make sure we get in the room.

Important Note: If you work for one of our sponsoring agencies (Department of Early Learning, Division of Child Support, Community Services Division, or Children’s Administration) please check in with Kristin Ohler before registering for the event as your registration may have already been paid in advance.
