The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) is excited to partner with the GED Testing Service at the 2019 Families Learning Conference Nov. 4-6 in Louisville, Kentucky.Packed with innovative thought leaders and some of the nation’s leading educational experts, this year’s conference promises to include many high points, among them a celebration of NCFL’s 30th anniversary of working to empower families across the country.

The 2019 Families Learning Conference will include approximately 100 different concurrent sessions taking place over the course of three days. Variety won’t be in short supply, as sessions will be offered in seven different content strands including Adult Education. GED Testing Service will present two sessions during the event.

On Monday, GED Testing Service’s Debi Faucette and Thomas Ross will present ‘Finding GED: Navigating the Search for Adult Literacy Services.’ In this session, attendees will learn tools and resources they can use to both locate and engage their learners in adult literacy services.

On Tuesday, Faucette will return to lead a facilitated discussion on the GED program itself. Attendees will review what they already know about the GED program and be able to ask questions in order to learn things they want to know about the GED. Both sessions will run for 75 minutes.

Those looking to interact with GED at the Families Learning Conference one-on-one will have that opportunity as well. All are invited to stop by the GED photo booth to take fun and memorable photos. The booth will be located in the Marriott Ballroom Foyer all day Tuesday and Wednesday. Attendees can stop by to get their photo taken and learn more about what GED Testing Service can do for their literacy program.

Finally, GED Testing Service President Vicki Greene will introduce an NCFL family learning student speaker on Wednesday at the Closing Brunch, the student will share their learning journey from high school dropout to GED grad.

The brunch will also include a keynote presentation from Marcus Shingles, former CEO of XPRIZE and an innovative thought leader and social impact-minded executive.
