What’s new with the conference?

The FBINAA has made significant advancements for the conference to improve the quality of education and training, make it more economical to include meals and events, and to enhance the overall family experience.

Greater number of robust training sessions and professional development seminars focused on 21st Century contemporary law enforcement trends and issues.

A second registration option was added in 2018 for members and sworn non-member law enforcement personnel to choose a full Conference Badge or Basic Training Badge.

Enhanced family guest experience with the opportunity to share breakfast with attendees, and participate in optional free and paid activities over four full days during the Conference Family Lounge serving as a central headquarters for registered adult and youth guests and offering a variety of free activities for all ages

Opportunity for attendees to purchase tickets to optional evening events or to go “on your own” to experience night life in Phoenix/Scottsdale.

Have the registration fees changed for 2019?

Registration fees have stayed consistently for several years.  Registration fees for the Conference Badge have increased by $25 this year to keep up with inflationary and local costs.  The Family Badge and Basic Training Badge fees remain the same as last year.  This year, the 2019 Conference Host Committee and sponsors are providing free entry to the FBINAA Night at Topgolf; certain exclusions apply.

In addition to my conference registration, what meals and events can I add-on?

Most registration fees are set low so that you can “buy-in” to breakfasts and evening events as you wish. The Basic Training Badge registration allows for access to training sessions and the exhibition but is not eligible for meals or events.

What is the Basic Training Badge registration?

Member and non-member sworn law enforcement personnel now have this badge option if your focus is on quality law enforcement training and finding new innovative products and services for your agency. This basic registration type does not allow for “buy-in” of meals or evening events, nor can this registration type add Family Badges to their registration.

What’s the best way to get started with registration?

Before moving to the registration page, be sure to review these items.

  • Review the conference fees on the registration page to see what is included and which registration is best for you
  • Register (members and non-member law enforcement first) and then secure a hotel room
  • Family Badges can be added through the Attendee Service Center (link and login are provided in your paid registration confirmation email)
  • Register for Optional Events and Activities using the link provided in your paid registration confirmation email

Will there be a Conference Give Back Program at this year’s conference?

Yes.  The host committee has made arrangements to support a local charity called Andrea’s Closet and the Arizona Make-A-Wish.  Here are the details:

A toy may seem like a small gift, but it can go a long way to help a sick child get through a painful medical procedure.  A Phoenix-based organization called Andrea’s Closet was created to assist children when facing medical treatment.  Toys are sent to local hospitals to give to children facing frightening medical treatments such as cancer, burns, surgeries or other procedures. The hospital staff have access to toys so that children can pick a toy for comfort.

Come to the conference with a new and unwrapped toy or stuffed animal.  Items will be collected at the Information & Activity Desk.  In exchange for your generosity we will give you a FBINAA Boardroom t-shirt for free.  If you are unable to bring a toy you can purchase a t-shirt.  The amount you pay will be donated to the Arizona Make-A-Wish.
