About the NASFAA National Conference

While the continued future of on-site events is unknown, NASFAA is currently planning an in-person convening for 2021. Following a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we look forward to providing the same great experience you've come to know and expect. However, as these are uncertain times, NASFAA will keep all registered attendees, additional participants, and NASFAA members abreast of any changes to our current plan.

Where: Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, on the Washington, D.C. waterfront, in National Harbor, Maryland
When: Sunday, June 27, 2021–Wednesday, June 30, 2021
