Annual Conference

IFCPP is pleased to announce that our 21st Annual Conference will be held October 8-13, 2020 in Washington, DC. 

The IFCPP Conference Team is very pleased to announce that this year’s conference will be held in Washington, DCOctober 8-13 at the state-of-the-art beautiful new Museum of the Bible. The core conference will run Oct 9-11, with special pre-conference cultural excursions, CIPM II certification courses on Oct 12, two days of optional CISS supervisor certification courses for your mid-level staff, and a first-of-its-kind Protecting Houses of Worship full-day post-conference symposium on Oct 13. Conference delegates can pick and choose between daily educational offerings, as well as nighttime networking receptions, museum and library tours, and much more.
This year’s big event will be the Foundation’s first weekend conference, allowing delegates to take less time away from their institutions, and reducing lodging costs by 35%. We also plan to webcast the conference for those cultural property protection practitioners that are unable to attend in person. 
Conference partners will include several federal agencies, and out-of-the-classroom activities will include excursions to nearby museums, libraries, and other world-renowned institutions and national icons. We’re proud to highlight everything that our nation’s capital has to offer, all within walking distance of the conference hotel.

Additional details on planned sessions and activities  will be available very soon. We’re finalizing our partnerships, activities, and contracts now. Registration fees for the main 3-day event will run $495 - $695. Make sure to budget additional funds for certification courses, companion participation, nighttime activities, and pre/post-conference options. Given the current state of affairs, early registrations will receive a significantly discounted registration fee of only $495! We haven't offered a lower cost in several years, but we feel that it's important to do our part to help ease the impact that we're all experiencing because of the current pandemic. Additionally, we'll be waiving cancellation fees, and providing full refunds well into September.
