Annual Conference

Registration is Open!

The National Fusion Center Association (NFCA) is pleased to announce that registration and hotel reservations are open for its upcoming 2023 Annual Training Event, to be held April 24-27, 2023, in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Annual Training Event in April is shaping up to be a tremendous occasion with outstanding sessions for attendees to learn best practices from their colleagues throughout the Network. The NFCA has been especially pleased with the quality of presentation submissions for this year’s conference, and attendees with be equally pleased with the wide array of thought-provoking topics.

New this Year

The NFCA is always looking for ways to improve the experience of the annual event. In response to many of your suggestions, we have extended the breakout session time slots, created Town Hall style forums and Learning Lab sessions, and added a Fusion Liaison Officers Day to allow for greater in-depth collaboration and discussions.

FLO Coordinator Workshop/Summit – FLO Coordinators and/or their supervisors are encouraged to attend this event Monday April 24th. The workshop/summit will provide key information, resources, and best practices for TLO Coordinators to enhance their fusion center’s FLO Program. It is also a great opportunity to meet NFCA FLO Committee Members and Region Co-Chairs from each of the NFCA’s six regions and discuss local, regional, and national meetings and training opportunities.
