The Convention Is a Go

The fine folks behind the 2006 At-Home Dad Convention have officially announced this year's event:
For all the men that have traded in the office for the daily rewards and challenges of at-home parenthood, the annual At Home Dad Convention will be held November 11th, 2006, in partnership with the Women's and Family Centers at the University of Missouri Kansas City. This year's theme will be "Dads Helping Dads" and will focus on ways to help the at-home dad do his job. The convention also comes with a new location: after 10 years in the Chicago area, the annual convention is pleased to begin its second decade in a new home, Kansas City, Missouri.

Organized by at-home dad volunteers from around the nation, the 11th Annual At Home Dad Convention is a great opportunity for at-home dads to interact in both the structured setting of the convention as well as in the relaxed atmosphere of numerous social gatherings. Large group sessions and smaller break-out sessions will offer a chance for at-home dads to learn new tips and tricks to help with the daily routine and ways to prepare themselves for life as their kids get older. Outside activities will also be available and may include a tour of the Kansas City Harley Davidson Assembly Plant, a docent led tour of local art and historical museums, a tour of the Boulevard Brewery, and an authentic KC BBQ meal.

Registration and lodging information will be posted August 1st.
Obviously, I've written a lot about the convention before -- I think it's a great event, and I know that the gentlemen who rescued the convention from its near-death experience have spent a lot of time trying to make the experience as fulfilling as possible. There has been a fair amount of reinvention, and I'm curious to see how the rebirth goes.

I'd love to have a big SAHD blogger presence there -- Jeff has made the trek, but I'm not aware of any other guys in the blogroll who have made it out in the past. If you're a blogger and plan to be there, let me know -- I'd love to send traffic your way.
