[01/17/13]   ****Announcement****
We have decided not to proceed with our annual conference this year due to a variety of reasons, the major one being we simply do not have the staff capacity. As of January 1, 2013, our parent information and referral service transitioned to New England Farm Workers Council (NEFWC) as did two of our long-term staff members who had been instrumental in the implementation of the conference. Additionally, our regular training calendar (coming your way soon!) is very ambitious for the second half of this year requiring existing staff to concentrate their efforts on successfully implementing those trainings.
We know many of you were planning to attend and we are very sorry for having to cancel. Our hope is that we will offer it in 2014 and it will be as vibrant an event as ever!
We will keep you posted!
