Annual 2023 Training Conference

New England Federation of Humane Societies Annual Training Conference 2023

The New England Federation of Humane Societies (NEFHS) will be holding our Annual Conference from April 15th-17th at the Hartford Marriott Downtown in Hartford, Connecticut.

Our conference includes basic knowledge for those just starting out, advanced knowledge for those who have specialized in an area, and progressive discussions to lead us into the future as our field changes. The NEFHS connects animal welfare professionals so that they can learn from each other and collaborate.

This year’s scholarship funding is provided by the John T. and Jane A. Wiederhold Foundation.

You can learn about this year’s program.
