The National At-Home Dad Network is proud to announce board members Al Watts and Hogan Hilling will be breakout panelists at the Dad 2.0 Summit, held Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 at the Four Seasons in Houston, TX.

It’s just another example of how Dad 2.0, the nation’s premiere dad blogging conference, and the National At-Home Dad Network have joined forces to continue providing fathers with educational, networking and outreach opportunities.

In addition to Watts’s and Hilling’s presentations at Dad 2.0, all National At-Home Dad Network members will receive a discount of 35 percent on tickets to the conference. Email us at vp@daddyshome.org for the discount code or consult our latest newsletter. Dad 2.0 attendees will also get a discount to the 18th Annual At-Home Dads Convention, which will be held Oct. 18-19 in Denver, CO.

Hogan Hilling, who is a National At-Home Dad Network board member, will participate on the Dad 2.0 Summit Friday afternoon keynote panel “Content & Craft”. He will discuss how he turned his experience of more than 20 years as an at-home dad into inspiration for four parenting books, including the SheKnows best fathering book for 2011, Rattled: What He’s Thinking When You’re Pregnant.

“I’ve known of Hogan’s work for a long time and his absence at our first conference is something I’m grateful about rectifying for this year’s Dad 2.0 Summit,” conference co-founder Doug French says.

National At-Home Dad Network President Al Watts will take part at Dad 2.0 as a panelist at the Friday afternoon breakout session “Can Parenting Ever Be Gender Neutral?” The panel will be led by Asha Dornfest, founder of ParentHacks.com, and will explore whether dads can ever be equal to moms in the parenting world.

“I’m very excited to share the stories of at-home dads who are proving every day gender isn’t what determines one’s qualifications to be a good parent,” Watts says.

Hogan and Watts are also co-editing a book project titled Dads Behaving Dadly: Chronicles of the Fatherhood Revolution.

The Dad 2.0 Summit is an open conversation about the commercial power of dads online, as well as an opportunity to learn the tools and tactics used by influential bloggers to create high-quality content, build personal brands, and develop business ideas.

We highly recommend that you attend!
