 2020 Oregon Parenting Educators Conference and Training Institute
Notice of Cancellation

We regret to announce that the 2020 Oregon Parenting Educators Conference and Training Institute, hosted at Oregon State University planned for May 18-19, 2020, has been cancelled.

We made this difficult decision to cancel due to health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19. Oregon State University and the Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative (OPEC) are committed to the health and well-being of the communities we serve - including parenting education professionals, families and children. Your health and well-being is our utmost priority at this time.

We are pleased to announce that the 2021 Oregon Parenting Educators Conference and Training Institute will be hosted at Oregon State University, on May 3-4, 2021. We hope you mark your calendars and plan to attend.

For poster, workshop and training institute presenters: We will be in touch shortly with an invitation to carry your presentation forward to the 2021 dates. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Should you have questions about the postponement of the program or next year’s conference please contact the OPEC Parenting Education at opec@oregonstate.edu.

Of all the things that influence a child’s growth and development, the most critical is reliable, responsive, and sensitive parenting. Effective parenting education programs have been linked with decreased rates of child abuse and neglect, better physical, cognitive and emotional development in children, and increased parental knowledge of child development and parenting skills.

The Hallie E. Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families and the Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative hosts an annual Parenting Educators Conference and Training Institute for professionals working with families.
