NAVREF is hosting an NPC Training Workshop in Dallas, TX beginning on Thursday, April 4th at 8:00 am and concluding on Friday, April 5th at 12:00 pm.  There will be no charge for the NPC Training Workshop other than your travel expenses, i.e., flight, per diem and hotel. 

The NPC Training Workshop is kept small and informal to facilitate learning points between presenters as well as participants. This training is designed for executive directors and senior staff members with less than 5 years of experience, however all is welcome! Several topics will be discussed including/but not limited to NPC operations, HR, and finances. We also plan on having presenters from STAR, OGC Ethics, and NPPO to round out the curriculum.  

If you have any questions concerning this event please contact Mr. Hawk Tran at or 301-656-5005



The NPC Training Workshop will be held at the Magnolia Hotel, Downtown Dallas. The Magnolia Hotel boasts upscale lodging with all the trimmings, blending classic elegance with impressive modern design and amenities that will inspire you. This historic landmark was built in 1922 as the headquarters for Magnolia Petroleum soaring 400 feet into the Texas sky. This 29 story building was the tallest structure in Dallas for almost 20 years. However, today the hotel building is most famous for housing Pegasus, the flying red horse (a symbolic icon of Dallas), which is perched atop the roof and illuminated at night.

Our room block has been secured at the prevailing government rate of $149 so please book your rooms as soon as you can! This information will also be posted the the event page on the NAVREF website. Attendees will be able to book, modify, or cancel a reservation until March 16, 2019.
