In order to meet security requirements at the Federal Reserve Bank, registration for the conference closed on June 5.



Please check-in at the hotel before walking over to the Federal Reserve Bank. While you will probably not be able to get into your room, you can store your luggage. Security rules at the Federal Reserve prohibit attendees from carrying their luggage into the conference facilities.

It is about a 15-minute walk from the hotel to the conference center. Wednesday’s lunch is on your own.

Registration begins at Wednesday at 12:30 p.m.


Federal Reserve Security Procedures

Upon entering the building, security officers will verify an individual’s identify. Please provide them with a government-issued photo ID. The officer will then verify the individual is on the registered attendee list and then print their conference badge. There will be an airport-like screening of an individual and their materials. Please proceed to the Travelers Aid/Community Link Welcome Desk to obtain your conference materials and welcome gifts.
Each time an attendee enters the building they will be subject to a security screening. Please present your conference page and ID.
Our welcome session begins at 1:30 p.m. in the Magnolia/Dogwood Suite


Planning Your Trip to Charlotte

Our educational programming begins early Wednesday afternoon, prior to the traditional Opening Networking Event.

Please check-in at the hotel prior to walking over to the Federal Reserve Bank. As a federal building, there is airport-like security in place and you will not be able to bring your luggage into the conference facility. It is a 15-minute walk to the Federal Reserve from the hotel.

Registration opens at 12:30 p.m. at the Federal Reserve and the first session begins at 1:30 p.m.

Based on member feedback, we are not planning any organized evening social events so you can explore Charlotte on your own or with your cross-country Travelers Aid buddies.
