American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS)


For more than 100 years, AAFCS has offered an on-site Annual Conference & Expo that includes numerous content-rich sessions and networking opportunities for FCS students and professionals across multiple practice settings and content areas.

Every fall, AAFCS also offers the AAFCS Leadership Conference, which is designed for Association information dissemination and affiliate leadership development.

As the Association moves forward in its second century, it is committed to providing an outstanding array of research-based sessions through on-site conferences. Future conferences will capitalize on the best practices of past conferences, while incorporating new ideas and directions that reflect the evolution of the Association and profession.

In addition to AAFCS-sponsored conferences, there are many affiliate and FCS-related events that are of keen interest to our members and FCS professionals.

To see what events are coming up, please see the list below and check our Calendar of Events.

As the one-stop resource for FCS professional development, AAFCS strives to promote on-site events that are appropriate and are of interest to FCS professionals. To submit your event for consideration of promotion on our Calendar of Events, please complete our Submission Form.
