I was surprised to discover that there is an annual At-Home Dads Convention. This year, the 14th Annual At-Home Dads Convention will be held in Omaha, Nebraska on Saturday, October 10, 2009. The Convention is presented by the National At-Home Dad Network, Daddyshome, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to bringing at-home dads together.
Omaha is 1,400 miles away from New York City! All of the New York City at-Home Dads are probably wondering if it is worth the trek & wondering what happens at this type of convention. I am wondering the same thing because I have never attended the convention before or been to Omaha for that matter. However, after talking with one of the seasoned event volunteers and reading their website, the convention sounds appealing. First, it presents an awesome opportunity to connect with other dads in similar situations from across the U.S. and Canada. The costs are kept low – hotel room is $109/night including breakfast + transportation to the airport & registration fees are only $40. Additionally, if you are “hungry for knowledge on how to raise your kids better and manage your household more efficiently…there will be experts facilitating discussions and hands-on workshops in a range of topics for at-home dads.”
