Ferma 2014

What might you do and see in Savannah in addition to attending the 2014 FERMA Conference?

Here's Travel US News' Savannah Top 10 list!

We hope you're making plans to join us for the FERMA Conference, January 27-29, 2014 at the Desoto Hilton in the heart of the historic district. You can make your hotel reservation now, by calling 1-877-280-0751 or by visiting www.desotohilton.com and entering the Group/Convention Code: FER.

Registration will be up soon. Be sure to watch for an exciting new opportunity for those of you who will be submitting papers!!

Jul 13, Update: FERMA's web site is now at http://www.fermascholar.org/

As some of you may know already, the Western Family Economics and Resource Management Association has been dissolved; any remaining funds were transferred to the Eastern Family Economics and Resource Management Association (EFERMA). In response, EFERMA  has been renamed to the Family Economics and Resource Management Association (FERMA) to indicate a national--maybe even international--orientation for the association.  We are working to develop a self-sustaining organizational structure.

As a member of the FERMA Steering Committee and in consultation with Michael Rupured, current Executive Director of FERMA, I am writing to invite you to join the listserv for FERMA as we work to unite academic, extension, and governmental professionals in the expertise areas related to family economics, consumer economics, personal finance, resource management, etc.   At the present time, there are no dues for FERMA, so the support of the profession and interaction that comes with membership costs time, but no money for the networking.

If you are interested in joining the FERMA listserv and knowing more about FERMA, the next conference, and what your colleagues are planning,  please send a message to

Michael Rupured mrupured@uga.edu and he will add you to the FERMA listserv.

Thanks for your time and attention to this message.  Hope to see you on the FERMA listserv.

With regards,
