July 19th-22nd 2018
It is with great anticipation and pleasure that we invite you to attend the 2018 NFSA Mid-Atlantic Regional Seminar. This year the seminar will be held at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. We hope that you will consider attending this enjoyable networking event and join in the informative seminar presentations.
Below you will find the seminar program. Included are all the seminar speakers and the topics to be presented. We are sure that you will find the topics both educational and interesting. Once again, this year we will be hosting the popular vendor “meet and greet” hour. This event will be held during our Thursday night cocktail hour. Many of the leading vendors in the industry will be set up with tabletop displays, which will let you see the latest technology and innovations in our industry. This event is held at no additional charge to the vendors who have a full registration.
Please note that there is plenty of time allotted to spend as you wish. The resort has plenty to offer for everyone, including an indoor pool, a fitness center, a spa and salon. A steakhouse, a sports bar and an Italian restaurant are among the dining options inside of the hotel, and many other options are just steps outside in the beautiful National Harbor. We are confident that everyone will be able find something that piques their interests.
On Saturday we will be hosting bingo for spouses and children. Sign-ups will be handled onsite for that event, and through the registration form in advance. To close the evening on Saturday, we will be hosting our Hall of Fame Dinner. The 2018 class includes Mr. Jim Dalton, Mr. John Waters, Mr. Charlie Hamilton, Mr. Mike Stango, and Miss Vina Drennan. Please come out and show your support as we induct our 2018 Hall of Fame Class.
