Need Additional Justification to Attend NFCS?

Consider training funds and continuous learning points. Most organizations have separate funds for training and general travel and have had an easier time getting approval to attend technical conferences under training funds. Does your organization require you to meet continuing education or learning goals each year? Many government attendees in acquisition roles have been using NFCS to help meet these Continuous Learning goals. Participation in the conference counts as a “Professional Activity” and they are able to collect points (also known as CLs or CLPs) for attending and or presenting at the conference. Additional points are also available if you attend the workshops that are held on Monday.
