We are pleased to announce the release of a new issue of JFDE. The spring 2023 issue includes Part 2 of our special issue focused on the Family Leadership Design Collaborative. We are grateful to guest co-editors Dr. Ann M. Ishimaru and Dr. Megan Bang for sharing this innovative work with the JFDE community. Part 1 of the special issue can be found in Volume 4, no 1. of the JFDE. Collectively these articles are wonderful examples of community-engaged scholarship and will hopefully inspire additional innovations in the field.  This issue also includes a new “Community Conversation” with the National Association for Family, School and Community Engagement (NAFSCE). This feature is a part of our continued commitment to bring readers of JFDE timely content. NAFSCE recently completed a three-year effort to develop Family Engagement Core Competencies for family-facing professionals. We hope you find this conversation regarding the development of the competencies interesting and consider engaging with their work.
