Why is the NAIFA Conference in October?

The NAIFA Career Conference and Annual Meeting is typically held in September each year. NAIFA works with hotels and convention centers to find available dates which will not conflict with national holidays and major religious holidays. Those criteria limited the available dates in September 2015.

The NAIFA Conference is so jam-packed there is no time to enjoy our host city. How can I find time in our schedule for some sightseeing?

Yes, the NAIFA Conference schedule is filled with educational workshops, great main stage presentations, important governance events, advocacy updates, receptions, breakfast events and more all packed into just three days. All the conference events taking place in just three days is great for those who are concerned about being away from home or the office for too long. But, if you are looking to enjoy more of the local flavor of New Orleans, NAIFA recommends the Vocation/Vacation approach to the conference. Plan to add a day or more before or after the conference to enjoy New Orleans. Satisfy the vocation part of your trip with the official conference activities and add a day to scratch the vacation itch. Make your hotel reservation early, and you’ll find hotel rooms available at the great NAIFA room rate for a day or two before or after the main conference dates.

Who will be the main stage presenters for NAIFA 2015? When can I see a schedule of educational workshops?

The main stage program will be announced in January. The schedule of educational workshops will be available on April 1. Check back to this website for updates. You can also follow the NAIFA Conference on Twitter @NAIFAConference.
