Miami Dolphins to Attend Upbeat Dad Community Forum!

As you may know, on Thursday, February 10, 2011, we're having our inaugural Upbeat Dad Community Forum! I'm so excited because I believe that this has been years in the making! To learn about the vision I have for this event, see our post Announcing The Upbeat Dad Community Forum.

We have quite a few commitments to attend from different persons so far and I'm thrilled! Our most significant commitment thus far is from some officials with the Miami Dolphins football organization. I had a meeting at the Dolphins' headquarters last week and they very much embrace the vision of our organization and this event in particular! They're such an integral part of the South Florida community. They have a tradition of excellence on the football field and in being an active corporate citizen in Miami and the surrounding areas. So I'm pleased that they are on board with us in this forum.

I'm also excited that we have commitments from community leaders including family law attorneys, elected officials and educators. If you're in South Florida or you plan on being in town that day, do make plans to be with us. It will be a wonderful evening that I believe will be very informative. I also believe that we will have a very spirited and lively discussion about fatherhood.

Our goal is to help fathers to become more involved in their kids' lives. It's easier said than done, I know - particularly when there are family law issues involved. But based on my personal experience - like I shared in The Story Behind The Upbeat Dad - with enough determination, we can play the positive and influential roles in our kids' lives that we ought to play.

Below are the details on the event:
