Virtual Fall Leadership Workshop 2021

In appreciation to the Goebel Young Leadership Fund for supporting the Fall Leadership Workshop!


The world has changed. The AAFCS world has changed too. Our affiliate leaders are the backbone of our association. They have pivoted well and grappled with one unexpected issue after another since the pandemic hit and are working in new, fluid and futuristic ways. Our leaders are not just surviving, but they are thriving.

Actions speak louder than words. The 2021 Fall Leadership Workshop is designed to support our affiliate leaders on their journey to be future-ready, by turning insights to action to help prepare for whatever lies ahead. 

Join us for 8.5 hours of open dialogue, listen and learn sessions, break-thru breakout sessions, engagement activities, giveaways and more!

If your registration is being paid by your employer, school, or affiliate, we encourage you to begin the necessary steps to ensure your registration is complete and paid by the deadline, September 30th, in order to receive the Zoom links by email. Once online registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation and receipt by email.


Present and future leaders in the pipeline are strongly encouraged to attend. This includes all officers including the president, president-elect, and/or executive director, who attends. The workshop is also an opportunity to cultivate those members who have expressed an interest in a leadership position, too! The workshop recordings will be available for those unable to participate in the live event.

Your professional commitment is a critical part of what makes AAFCS a leader in the family and consumer sciences field. We look forward to seeing you in the Zoom Room in October!
