Washington DC Winter Meeting
February 9-10-11, 2016
JW Marriott Hotel  

Event planning for the winter meeting of the MCSA is well underway for this annual meeting. The conference, normally held in January, has been scheduled for February to avoid national events such as the President’s State of the Union Address and national holidays. In 2016 the MCSA conference will again be held in conjunction with the National Sheriff’s Association winter meeting.

As MCSA members are aware the Executive Board decided several years ago to hold the winter meeting in Washington DC so we might have direct access to senior members of the Executive Branch and key members of Congress, many of whom will be invited to address those attending the conference. We will follow our well established format of providing ample time for our speakers to provide information concerning their departments or legislative committees follow by an opportunity to engage the participants in a dialogue on matters of interest to our Sheriffs. These presentations and discussions will be scheduled for Wednesday February 10th and Thursday morning February 11th. The afternoon of February 11th, after lunch, will be reserved for visits to the Hill, individually schedule by the MCSA members.
