1962 Conference: Eye on the Family: New Perspectives on American Families and New Directions for Family Life Workers
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The 1962 Annual Conference was held at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, August 22–24. Wallace Fulton was program chair and chose the theme “Eye on the Family: New Perspectives on American Families and New Directions for Family Life Workers.” The three plenary speakers all canceled the week before the conference and had to be quickly replaced.

Lodging was offered at the Pleasant View Lodge Motel with week-long rates of $90 for a two-bedroom suite with a private bath. However, most of the attendees chose to stay in university dormitories, which were extremely uncomfortable and hot. Thus, the move to holding conferences at hotels was reinstated.
