I did not receive an invitation to NAFAC this year. Is there anything I can do?
Invitations to this year’s NAFAC have already been sent. If you wish to be added to a “wait list” in case space opens up, please reach out to our staff at email@example.com, and we will add your point of contact’s information to our records and reach out if we have more availability. This contact info will also be passed on to next year’s NAFAC staff, so that they might better be able to gauge your institution’s interest in participating earlier in the invitation process next year.
Note: NAFAC does not invite individuals to attend. Rather, we invite institutions from around the world, which then select the delegates they wish to send internally.
Where can I find the registration link for delegates?
The registration form was linked in the official invitation sent by NAFAC staff to your institution’s point of contact. Please have each delegate complete this form. There is no registration fee or confirmation email. Once you see the google form submission notification, you are registered!
What if I have a faculty/staff member from my institution who wishes to attend with me?
A separate Non-Delegate Attendee Form (different from the delegate registration form) should have been sent to your institution’s point of contact by NAFAC staff. If a non-delegate wishes to attend the conference, please have them complete this form, as well!
What expenses are covered by USNA and what am I funding personally?
All transportation costs to and from the Annapolis area are self-funded by attendees. Delegate food and lodging will be provided by the Naval Academy for the duration of their stay in Annapolis. Non-delegate attendance is completely self-funded, as the Naval Academy will be unable to provide lodging for non-delegates. Transportation between the three airports listed in the registration form (Dulles, Reagan, and Baltimore-Washington) and the Academy will be provided by the conference, as we will have vans periodically making trips between the airports and USNA throughout the days of arrival (10 April) and departure (14 April).
The conference schedule says it ends on the 13th at 2300. Will delegates be able to spend the night and leave on the 14th?
Absolutely! It is our staff’s expectation that delegates will spend the night on the 13th in their respective lodging (provided by USNA), and will leave the morning of the 14th. Again, transportation to the airport will be provided by the conference the morning of the 14th.
What meals should I expect to be covered by the conference?
The first provided meal will be dinner on the evening of the 10th after the majority of delegates have arrived. If your travel schedule will prevent you from eating before dinner that day, our staff recommends you plan to purchase your own meal or snacks. There will also be one evening during the course of the conference for delegates to explore Annapolis and purchase their own dinner in town should they wish. Breakfast on the morning of departure (14 April) will not be provided by the conference.
