2019 Conference Recap

Looking Back On Our 2019 Conference

Thanks very much for those who joined us for the Foundation's 20th Anniversary Gathering!

The IFCPP conference team is very proud to have successfully executed its 20th Annual Conference, Seminar & Exhibits!  Our 20th Anniversary event was held in our home state of Colorado, October 19-25 at the newly remodeled Crowne Plaza hotel in downtown Denver, just blocks from Denver’s Cultural Center Complex, and Vail’s Sebastian award-winning resort hotel, located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies.

This 3-part conference began with pre-conference networking activities in Denver on Oct 19-20, including excursions to the History Colorado Museum, Denver Zoo, and the newly expanded Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art. The main conference kicked off the evening of Oct 20 with our traditional Welcome Reception at the Crowne Plaza in the heart of downtown Denver, followed by 2 days of educational sessions and group activities, Oct 21-22. As customary, the educational track featured out-of-the-classroom activities, including an afternoon excursion to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and nightly group networking dinners. We then transported conference participants to the magical Rocky Mountain village of Vail for 2 more days of conference sessions, leadership workshops, networking activities, and local museum excursions, Oct 22-24
