2021 Day in Washington

 

CANCELED: No In-Person Event 

Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 or Coronavirus, the U.S. Capitol Complex and all office buildings are closed to outside visitors until further notice. 

We are planning to conduct the FMI-NGA Annual Day in Washington Fly-in remotely utilizing a virtual video conferencing platform on April 28-29th.  Please continue to preserve your availability on these days. Please stay tuned for more details as this situation unfolds.  All hotel registrations in our room block at the Liaison Washington DC Capitol Hill have been cancelled.  If you have made arrangements at other nearby hotels, please cancel your reservation. We are rescheduling this in person event for April 2021 and will get that information to you as soon as possible.

We appreciate your patience during this time and thank you for your support of this event. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. For more information, please contact Debbie Stewart at dstewart@fmi.org or 202-220-0828.
