IFHE World Congress Postponed – 2022

May 29, 2020
Dear IFHE-US members and colleagues,
As the pandemic is challenging our way of life, we are seeing that many conferences are being cancelled. For over 100 years, the IFHE World Congress has been a source of inspiration to home economists around the globe, but we care about your health and want to do our part to keep everyone safe. We have therefore decided to postpone the IFHE World Congress 2020.
Today, we are announcing that the XXIV IFHE World Congress will be held 4-10 September 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia USA at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. We already look forward to welcoming you there!
Postponing the Congress comes with many organizational decisions. Over the next month, plans will be announced regarding accepted abstracts and refund options. These will be posted on the XXIV World Congress website (see link below).
The 2020 Council Meeting will take place online. Most countries have already nominated delegates who will be informed in a separate email.
Please continue to check the World Congress website for any updates.
Thank you for your patience.

Challenge to donate to climate exhibitor- IFHE World Congress

From Virginia (Ginny) Vincenti

Challenge to donate to climate exhibitor-IFHE World Congress

The Exhibit Committee of the International Federation of Home Economics (IFHE) 2020 World Congress, August 2-8 Atlanta, GA, is seeking donations to support the participation of Citizens’ Climate Lobby/Citizens’ Climate Education which works nationally and globally. Since the theme of Congress is “Sustainable Development”, we think we really need an exhibitor on climate issues and solutions.

This organization also wants to do an exhibit and 60-minute interactive workshop to help us better understand the complexities of this problem and solutions.   It has produced videos and other science-based materials and info you could use in your professional practice.

However, the cost of $1,000 is more than their budget allows. I feel strongly we need this perspective so I am challenging you to make a tax-deductible donation that I will match so that we can have access to this valuable information.  You will receive a receipt for your donation from IFHE-US.  Send your check written to IFHE-US with a memo for “climate exhibitor” to:

            Luann Boyer, IFHE-US Director of Finance

            22500 CR 21

            Fort Morgan, CO 80701 

Thanks,
