NARME’s 2012 “Champions for Children” Conference
Baltimore, Maryland
July 20-25, 2012

Presenters Wanted!
 
The National Association for Relationship and Marriage Education (NARME) is currently seeking qualified, professional speakers – experts in their field - to present at the 2nd annual conference.  This conference will offer an array of topics around the goal of promoting “Champions for Children."  In preparing for a successful event, we realize that our sessions are only as effective as our presenters.
 
Staying in line with the mission of NARME, it is our desire to establish a conference that will foster education for healthy marriages, responsible fathers, and strong families.  We are seeking presenters and speakers that will join us in this endeavor to deliver quality sessions as well as enhance the overall conference experience.  As we begin to select speakers for this upcoming conference, we hope that this will become a lifelong partnership as we team up to become “Champions for Children”. 

All seminars should tie into the theme of the conference.  Presenters are expected to provide insightful information that will enhance the abilities of organizations, practitioners, and/or individuals to provide services to couples, fathers, families, and youth and single adults from diverse backgrounds for the benefit of raising healthy children, thus “Champions for Children.”  We are looking for presenters to provide information on effective programs for marriages, fatherhood and families, children and youth, best practices, tools and resources, and research.    
 
One, two, or three day training programs will start as follows: 3-day trainings begin on Friday, July 20th and run 3 days, 2-day trainings begin on Saturday, July 21st and run 2 days, 1-day trainings will be on Sunday, July 22nd.
 
Each workshop session will be approximately 90 minutes in length and should be able to provide hands-on tools for the participants.  It is highly recommended that the session be interactive.  Workshops will be scheduled on any of the dates between Monday, July 23rd – Wednesday, July 25th, 2012.  PRESENTERS SHOULD PLAN ON BEING AT THE
CONFERENCE SITE FOR THE ENTIRE CONFERENCE!
 
If you are interested in presenting, please visit www.NARMEConference.com to complete
a Presenter Application.  Submit one proposal for each workshop that you
desire to present.  Proposals must be received no later than 5:00 pm on Monday, January 9th, 2012.  Do not submit any physical paperwork or payment until notified to do so. 

Before submitting an application, please read the Presenter Agreement ( found on page 8
of the application
).  Proposal
selections will be made by Friday, January 13th, 2012, and presenters will be notified via e-mail.  The presenters that are selected will be given right of first refusal for an exhibit booth.        
 
Thank you in advance for your consideration.  We hope to see you at NARME’s “Champions for Children” 2012 Conference in Baltimore!
 
Best Regards,
 
Maggie Russell & Rob Harrison

Strengthening Fragile Families Training Institute

December 12-16, 2011

 

For over two decades, family practitioners have been working with low-income fathers and mothers from diverse backgrounds without the necessary knowledge and skills to optimize their work. The Strengthening Families Institute is a five day skills building certification program  designed to increase the capacity of individuals and agencies to be successful in working with low-income fathers, mothers, never married and married couples with children from diverse backgrounds and community settings.

 

This five day institute will train interested individuals and agencies on the history of the responsible fatherhood and healthy marriage/relationship education movement; best-practices in working with men, women, mothers, fathers and families including recruitment, retention and evaluation, and how to implement effective peer support groups. 

 

SFFTI trains practitioners in the effective use of The Fatherhood Development Curriculum and The Relationship Skills for Strong Families curriculum developed by Dr. Jeffery M. Johnson. The curriculums are based on real experiences and challenges of fragile family settings.  The curriculum also offers advice on facilitating groups and a theory of change methodology for training and participant learning.
