Welcome to the 2017 AHEPPP National Conference! We are excited to have you join us at the historic Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

We hear time and again from our members, just how valuable they find the annual AHEPPP conference. Whether you are just starting on your journey with parent and family programs or you are what we like to call, a seasoned professional, this conference is for everyone. From traditional topics that are of the utmost importance to AHEPPP members, such as Family Weekend and Parents’ Orientation to the importance of self-care and professional development in a sometimes challenging and rapidly changing educational climate, this conference will actively engage and empower all who attend.

Since our last meeting in Boulder, the 2017 AHEPPP Conference Committee has been working diligently to develop a program that will maximize your time in Dallas. The 2017 theme, Be Bold. Be Inspired. Be Here. promises to provide members that are here with only the best of trends and practices among today’s parent professionals. Attendees will be inspired by the engaging conversations and invaluable time networking and sharing with colleagues from peer institutions across the nation. The committee promises to boldly introduce new concepts and ideas that will leave you feeling renewed and reenergized for the year to come.

All this and more awaits in Dallas, November 13-15, 2017!

On behalf of the AHEPPP Conference Committee and Board of Directors, get ready! The 2017 Conference in Dallas promises to be our biggest and brightest conference yet. We look forward to seeing you there!
