Five bloggers will be able to attend the annual Dad 2.0 Summit in 2018 without breaking the bank, thanks to a generous donation by City Dads Group.
The national fatherhood support network recently gave $2,500 to the conference’s Oren Miller Scholarship Fund. The fund offers free admission tickets and $500 stipends to offset travel and lodging costs to randomly selected applicants.
“Dad 2.0 is the place we meet the guys who organize our groups, write for our blogs, and participate in our influencer campaigns,” City Dads Group co-founder Matt Schneider said. “We hope our contribution gives some dads who have never attended the conference before the opportunity to meet other fathers and become more involved in the community.”
Dad 2.0 Summit, now entering its seventh year, is a national three-day meeting where marketers, social media leaders, blogging parents and regular dads get together to discuss the changing voice and perception of modern fatherhood. The next conference, dubbed Dad 2.018, takes place in New Orleans, Feb. 1 to 3, 2018.
City Dads has been strongly represented at these Dad 2.0 gatherings, both on stage and in the audience. At the 2017 conference in San Diego, 16 of our 26 chapters had members in attendance with 16 members appearing as speakers or panelists.
Individual donations can also be made online, by PayPal or credit card, to the Dad 2.0 scholarship fund: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2018-dad-20-summit-tickets-31980965930.
