What is this all about?

It is all about NCFM’s 40th Anniversary Celebration (NCFM40AC)! We are honoring four decades of work by our volunteers, members at large, board members, advisers and award winners all of whom have worked and continue to work diligently toward making the world a better place for all of us.

Become an NCFM donor, member or renew your membership. Registration is dependent upon information in established online NCFM member or donor accounts, respectively; hence, you have to be a member in good standing or have a donor account to register for NCFM40AC. Memberships and renewals are a minimum of $35 per year, and a $1 donation or more establishes a Donor account.

NCFM40AC includes, among other events, two days of presentations by experts, authors, social-media personalities, movie producers, and other highly accomplished activists, most if not all of whom are NCFM members (see Presenters).

Regardless of mythical stereotypes, men are not, simply because of their sex, necessarily all-powerful, indestructible, and privileged; nor do they have more opportunities, an easier life, or earn more than women. It only takes a few words or a single syllable (“rape”) to destroy any man, young or old and deprive him of his future, freedom, family, finances and health…and even cause his suicide. Learn too about the taboo subject of women who sexually abuse boys, including mother-child sexual assault.

Hear from some of the best-known subject experts and survivors; as well as from others involved with men’s health, men’s life experience, family court, the military, criminal justice, legislation, abuse, activism and a host of other issues, all involving blatant discrimination against boys, men, their families and the women who love them (See Presenters for more information). Learn why innocent until proven guilty has morphed into guilty even after proven innocent.

Most of all, NCFM40AC is a very rare opportunity to mix and mingle with subject experts and old and new friends.

Moreover, NCFM40AC is in almost-always sunny San Diego, California, with warm weather, ocean breezes, sandy beaches and a range of entertainment possibilities. We plan on some fun too, enjoying great food and margaritas, and taking in a few sites.

The four star Best Western Plus Hacienda Hotel is our primary event venue, between Wednesday, September 13 and Saturday, September 16.

Wednesday, September 13

national coalition for menSaturday the 16th

is our national board meeting. Initially, the meeting is scheduled to be held in our conference room at our national offices in downtown San Diego.

NCFM members are encouraged to attend but must RSVP when registering online so we can plan space accordingly. Depending on the response, we may have the meeting in a different place, perhaps at the Hacienda Hotel if space is available. The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end no later than 5:00 p.m., earlier if possible.

There will be a dinner after the board meeting at a yet-to-be-determined location starting around 7:00 p.m.. NCFM members may bring one guest to the dinner. The cost is $50 per NCFM member and $50 for one guest.

    I’m interested in learning more about registration cost of NCFM40AC and about how to register. I think I’m a member of NCFM in good standing. Can I get confirmation on that?

    Thank you.

    I’m sorry. I’ve looked at the “What is this all about?” page. I’m still not clear on how one registers for the NCFM40AC event. I may have overlooked something on your web site. Is there a registration fee? Do you pay in advance for the meals you want or do you pay at the time of the event?

    I may attend Thursday late morning and Friday.
    Is there a video conference in the case I can not attend. I am from Miami.
    Did you guys read the book by famous boys Dr. Michael Gurian? It is called “Saving our sons”. I would suggest to invite Mr. Gurian to the event.
    Thanks in advance

    • NCFM on August 1, 2017 at 4:37 pm


      Right now there are no plans for a video conference. We are familiar with Gurian’s work and thank you for the suggestion about inviting him.

    Sadly, I’m unemployed and have to keep optional spending low. I may try to crash though.

    • NCFM on September 6, 2017 at 12:30 am

      No crashing. If you are an NCFM member give us a call at 619-231-1909.
