The reason we are returning for our 4th visit to the annual convention is because the heart & soul of this intimate conference (attendance hovers at around 70) are the amazing dads from across the country (usually 15 – 20 states represented) that come to share their experiences, learn from each other, hang out, drink lots of beer, and make connections that continue on for years.

There are some thought-provoking, educational, and powerful workshops & panel discussions planned each year at the conference. We always leave the weekend jazzed about using some of the things we learned to better master our craft of fatherhood. Fortunately, Matt and I will have the opportunity to be speaking on a panel discussion.
Are you at home because you got laid off? Is being at home emasculating? Do the moms on the playground hit on you? Doesn’t your wife do all the real work anyway? For too long, these are the questions at-home dads get asked by the media and they don’t allow us the opportunity to represent ourselves as the caring, competent, and confident dads we know we are. Join some of the loudest voices in the world of dads to discuss how we can work with the media and marketing companies to change the way dads are portrayed in the news, in TV and film, and in advertisements.
