FEDCON20, NARFE’s Premier National Conference

NARFE National Headquarters


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NARFE is announcing today (05-23-20) that FEDcon20, scheduled for August 30 through September 1 at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, AZ, has been cancelled.

This was a difficult decision. We heard from so many of you who were looking forward to this event. And we heard from a lot of people who had reservations about attending. Ultimately, we could not ignore the uncertainty of what our event would look like if we had to maintain social distancing or limit attendance, or anything that might pose a risk to our members, staff, exhibitors and volunteers.

In the meantime, we have successfully negotiated an arrangement where we will be able to host FedCon22 at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale, AZ, August 19-24, 2022. This also means that our original plan to host FEDcon22 in St. Louis, MO, will shift to become FEDcon24, August 14-22, 2024. We truly appreciate our hotels’ flexibility and understanding in helping us come to a mutually beneficial arrangement.

More information will follow about future virtual engagement opportunities for 2020, including extra webinars and multimedia content, and about related business meetings that were scheduled to be held before the conference. In addition, we will be reaching out separately to exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, and volunteer leaders, as well as refunding registration fees to those who have already registered for FEDcon20.

Thank you, as ever, for your support of NARFE, and we hope you and your families remain safe and well through this pandemic crisis and beyond.
