MCFR Connections

The Minnesota Council on Family Relations (MCFR) is one of the most active affiliates of NCFR in the country. Betty Cooke has just completed a year serving a president of MCFR during 2008. Among the many activities of this group is the sponsorship of two professional development state conferences in which cutting edge research related to families is brought to Minnesota family professionals. The spring conference, co-sponsored with and held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, focused on "Nature, Children and Families: A Necessary Connection," and the fall conference with nationally known keynoter Stephanie Coontz, focused on :"Contemporary Families: Formation, Function and the Future."
