New this Year
The NFCA is always looking for ways to improve the experience of the annual event. Considering that, the event has moved locations and will be held in the heart of Washington, DC. We are very excited about the new venue. Additionally, we have extended the breakout session time slots, created additional Townhall style forums to allow for greater in-depth collaboration and discussions, and will include a TLO Track for those attendees that would like to focus on this topic.

Townhall Sessions
The NFCA Agenda Committee is developing a series of Townhall sessions that will involve interactive discussion sessions on the most pertinent issues affecting the fusion center network. These sessions are meant to be highly interactive amongst the audience and facilitators of the session on some of the most hot-button issues.
