Why should I attend a WFRN conference?

The  most recent WFRN conference, the 2016 conference, was a terrific, exciting event, held right in the nation's capital, right at the height of the presidential election season on June 23-25, 2016.  About 650 work and family researchers from around the world (40+ countries) attended this event.  WFRN President Phyllis Moen and the conference program committee worked hard to achieve four goals - that the conference be Informative, Interesting, and Interactive, as well as Fun!
