FFRF has temporarily suspended registration. We are in the midst of determining whether our 2020 National Convention can be held as planned. We recommend that you postpone making hotel or flight reservations at this time. Please check back, we will post our final decision soon.

If the convention is canceled, all registrations, meals and reception costs will be refunded. If you’ve already reserved your room, please note that reservations at the hotel convention site may be cancelled up to 48 hours before your first night’s reservation.

Thank you for your understanding.

Note: Schedule is tentative and subject to slight changes. Will be updated periodically.
