Keep visiting our site so you can be one of the first to register for the 2017 NAFEPA Conference scheduled for March 19-22, 2017 in Washington DC. The theme for the conference is
Charting the Course...Moving Forward with ESSA and we will be at the historical Omni Shoreham Hotel. Come help us celebrate and expand your leadership in federal program administration with our renowned guest speakers, USDE staff, and NAFEPA members from across the nation. As always it will be exciting to be in the heart of our nation’s capital.

NAFEPA has members throughout the nation and United States territories. During the past ten years we have grown from 300 members to over 3,000 members. I believe that this speaks volumes about the services that we provide to members and the professional level of our conference. We would love to know how we can help you.
