AMF Virtual Conference

Actively Moving Forward 2015 Virtual Conference


This year’s AMF conference is virtual so we can reach more individuals interested in learning more about the unique issues that face grieving young adults. This conference will benefit college/university faculty and staff, bereavement professionals, community supporters, college students and other young adults.


The 2015 Virtual Conference will host three keynote speakers (one each day), and then will have specific webinars solely for students who are AMF chapter leaders.

Please see below for detailed information.


This conference will be held through WebEx video conferencing. This will allow us to broadcast this live and record it so you can visit the keynotes on YouTube at a later time if interested. Please see below for detailed information.


The AMF Virtual Conference will take place September 3rd, 4th, and 5th 2015.
