Dates of existence



The Kent County Home Economics Association was established on January 18, 1978 as the Kent Family and Consumer Studies Association. The group was established as a professional organization to provide support, networking, and learning opportunities for home economists in the Chatham-Kent area of Ontario. Membership included those in the fields of consumerism, child studies, foods and nutrition, housing, and textiles. The organization hosted guest speakers and demonstrations on a variety of topics including special education, fitness, healthy cooking, work-life balance, women's experiences, personal finance, early childhood education, crafting, adolescent sexuality, and more. In April of 1981 the name of the group changed to the Kent Home Economics Association, to keep in the line with the recently established Ontario Home Economics Association. The organization disbanded sometime after 1987.
