FLCA is a 501c6 Organization

Non-Discrimination Policy

The Family Life Coaching Association operates from a research-based, strengths-based, and bioecological family science perspective, actively working to be inclusive of all families, regardless of how family is defined. FLCA embraces all who are seeking to improve family life and does not discriminate on the basis of national origin, ethnic origin, race, color, gender, gender identity or expression, age, ability or disability, religious or spiritual beliefs, marital status or citizenship.

As a conference committee, we recognize the rapid changes and uncertainty associated with COVID-19 and have determined that it is best to cancel our June 2020 conference in Dallas, TX. As we seek to support families and communities, we feel that this decision is best for our members. However, we do want to acknowledge all of the work and support that we have received in so many ways. I, for one, have been blessed by committee members, community encouragement, and the excitement of those who have submitted proposals for this year’s conference.
In lieu of the conference, and in an effort to continue to grow together, we are working on an online format for our conference. If you have submitted a proposal, I will reach out to you personally about adapting your presentation for online presentation and publication. In addition, if you had reached out to me about a planned proposal, I encourage you to complete that process.
As I have worked with my children, my clients, and myself, I hear the repeating sentiment that out of every challenge comes an equally energetic solution. Though uncertainty seems to be at the forefront of our dialog, as professionals in the field of family life, we represent the frontlines of hope, resilience, and opportunity to grow forward in homes, neighborhoods, and communities. I pray that you and yours are well cared for and look forward to meeting you soon.
Sincerely and with gratitude,
Your conference committee
