Chapter Event

Join us at our 7th annual conference, in Boston, MA, November 7-9th!

ADFP is excited to again join forces with The Academy of Professional Family Mediators (APFM), and for the first time with Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation (MCFM), for an outstanding interdisciplinary conference that is an event not to be missed.

Learn from leaders in our field by attending workshops, plenaries and keynotes. You will have a chance to network and collaborate with your fellow divorce financial planners and mediators. As also offered in our 2018 conference there will be tracks on both mediation and financial sessions, so attendees can choose what they want to attend and enjoy exceptional educational opportunities.
