MINNESOTA CHAPTER

Member in the Spotlight: Beth Harrington

This month AFCC-MN honors Dr. Beth Harrington as our member in the spotlight.  Beth was a member of the original Minnesota AFCC Coordinating Committee formed in early 2008 for the purpose of establishing a Minnesota Chapter of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.  It was the work of this committee that lead to AFCC-MN obtaining provisional status as a state chapter in July 2008; holding its first annual conference in April 2009; and obtaining chartered chapter status in June 2010.  Beth served as President-Elect from April 2009 until July 2011; President from July 2011 until April 2013; and Past President from April 2013 through July 2015.  One of her first commitments as President was to lead the AFCC-MN board through a comprehensive strategic planning process that resulted in new Vision and Mission Statements; a restructuring of the organization's committees; and specific delegations of responsibilities to those committees.  Beth, we thank you for your commitment to AFCC-MN!
