June 29-30, 2015 in Baltimore, MD

For our 75th Anniversary Conference, NSA will hold a Presidential Forum on June 29-30, 2015 in Baltimore. This event will give you, our members, the opportunity to hear the presidential hopefuls and what they will do for law enforcement. This event will also give you, our members, the opportunity to make or break a candidate for the presidency.

As elected leaders in your communities, it is important that your voices be heard. By coming together in Baltimore for this historic event, NSA will provide a message to the candidates that law enforcement is tired of the attack on their profession.

We have invited both Democrats and Republicans. The Forum will be set up like a political convention, each candidate will have limited time to speak, then there will be 4-5 questions asked of each candidate.

In the upcoming weeks, you will have an opportunity to submit questions for the candidates. The best questions will be chosen by NSA Leadership and asked during the Forum by our moderator, Jonathan Thompson, executive director of NSA.

Registration and housing are open!
There are four different hotels being used during the conference. The Headquarters hotel is the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor. Our other three hotels are: the Marriott Inner Harbor, Holiday Inn Inner Harbor, and the Days Inn Inner Harbor.
