About the President's Association Address
The President's Association Address opens the conference on Day One at the General Session. The President will address the attendees, and apprise them of the efforts, strides, and accomplishments the NAFC has made, is working toward, and will strive to make in the upcoming year. The President will also take the ooportunity to introduce the conference Keynote Speaker.
The President's Association Address is not a Q&A session. Questions are not taken during the address; however, the President holds a Q&A Breakfast, during which questions are answered in a casual, conversational atmosphere over Breakfast.
All are encouraged to attend.

NAFC has consistently been a leader in promoting safe and effective treatment and supervision of offenders in both civil and criminal cases, improving communication between the clinician and criminal justice system, and enhanced protection of the public. The NAFC Mission is to Promote Competency and Training among Persons Working with Criminal Offenders.
