Oklahoma State U., who has written on family law issues.

Distinguished speakers from Massachusetts include Prof. Eugene Narrett
from Framingham State U., and Patrick Henry Flynn, Legislative
Director of CPF, Ted Ell, founder of Parents and Children Together
(PACT), and keynote speaker George Scott' local union president.
