While NANCM has not had the financial means to conduct another National Convention since 2006, we have decided to leave this page up for the inspiration of those who attended. We hope to put together another convention in the future. There is more information about the 2006 convention below the photos.
And a few more pictures for your enjoyment.
The National Association of Non Custodial Moms, Inc. (NANCM) hosted their first national convention at the Summer Bay Resort in sunny Orlando, Florida. The convention was held on Father’s Day weekend, since most of the attendees are non-custodial mothers; this is the one weekend a year that most children in divorce situations will be with their fathers.
The purpose of the convention was to gather non-custodial mothers, fathers and even custodial parents together for fellowship, inspiration, education, and emotional support. The convention shed light on the fact that despite gender, parents in the family court system are being let down on a daily basis, thus letting down the children in these situations. NANCM, believing there is no place for gender bias in custody situations, reached out to attendees, encouraging them to be the best parent they can be, despite distance and circumstance.
