October 6, 2012 will be remembered by many dads for some time! The WSFN State Conference was a highlight for dads attending, and their comments confirm this without hesitation. Listen to what dads had to say at the close of the day.
“…the Dads Panel & Open Mic continue to amaze me. But more important, the opportunity to celebrate dad is precious.”
“I’m re-energized and will be a better Dad & Husband for at least another year!”
“This is awesome! I like hearing other dads and seeing them overcome the challenges they’ve faced.”
“ Inspiring and Encouraging!”
“The breakout sessions were exactly what I was looking for.”
“Just a great day! Been an emotional year with highs and lows…this day helped keep things and life in perspective.”
“Powerful stories from other Dads-I am so much better for my family after attending this day. Powerful! (My wife loves it!)”
“This day blew me away! It really was important to hear from other dads and know I’m not the only one struggling to make sense of the challenges in my life.”
And there could be many more, but the message is clear. Dads connected with other dads, learned from leading experts on many important topics, and were inspired by other dads and outstanding presenters. Just a note: the conference averaged an “excellent” rating from dads. Wow!
WSFN is appreciative of the several sponsors making the conference possible. Thank you to Kindering for unfailing support; Children with Special Health Care Needs Program, DOH, for their insight into the importance of dads, moms, & families; Microsoft for their outstanding facility; and Starbucks for delicious coffee!
We look forward to next year’s conference and hope to see all of you plus a friend or two in 2013!
