This year's meeting will be held at the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC), a U.S. Fish and Wildlife facility near Shepherdstown, West Virginia.


The closest airport is Dulles International. NCTC is two hours from Washington, DC, by car. If you would like to try to ride share or carpool to NCTC from Dulles or the DC area, please indicate this on the In Person Participation Registration form.

The mailing address is 698 Conservation Way, Shepherdstown, WV 25433. If your GPS or mapping web site has a difficult time locating NCTC using the mailing address, use this address to locate the entrance to NCTC: 100 Col. Shepherd Road, Shepherdstown, WV 25443.

There is plenty of free, outdoor parking at NCTC.

Security Check

To get through the security gate at NCTC, meeting attendee names must appear on the registration and security gate list each day. You will be asked to show government-issued photo identification.

Upon arrival the first day, all attendees should check in at the front desk, where they will be given a name tag and directions to the meeting rooms, as well as lodging packet if staying at NCTC. 


NCTC has an on-site cafeteria. Meals are included in the lodging fee (including dinner the night of check-in and breakfast and lunch the day of check-out). Daily commuters may purchase lunch in the cafeteria (either through an ‘all you can eat’ meal card or à la carte).
