31st Annual Anti-Fraud Conference Cancelled 

31st Annual Anti-Fraud Conference Cancelled 

With great regret, the 31st Annual Anti-Fraud Conference has been cancelled.  The conference faced two challenges that materially impacted our ability to proceed:  First, we received notice of what appears to be major construction to the Hyatt occurring from March to June of this year.  Second, the declaration of emergency by the Governor of California pertaining to COVID-19 virus, and travel and attendance restrictions imposed by a substantial portion of our attendees’ companies.   It is important that the conference provide a safe environment for all attendees and a hotel facility that offers a full array of amenities to the attendees.

We are offering all conference registrants, sponsors, and exhibitors the choice between receiving a full refund or transferring their 2020 registration, sponsor, or exhibitor fees toward the 2021 conference which will be held 4/14/2021 to 4/16/2021.   If you elect to rollover your registration, sponsor, or exhibitor fees, please email the AFA Association Secretary Linda Tatka at ncfia.secretary@gmail.com.  Otherwise, no need to contact us as we will refund your entire amount.  Please expect your refund to be credited to your payment method or receive a refund check within 30 days, by 4/12/2020 if not sooner.  If you have any questions regarding refunds, please email the AFA Treasurer, Dena Salinas at  denasalinas@sbcglobal.net.   We appreciate your patience as we process the refunds as quickly as possible.

IMPORTANT:  The Hyatt will be cancelling all room conference reservations under both the Industry and Government blocks, however, the Hyatt will honor the conference rates if you decide to rebook your reservation during that timeframe.  When you call the Hyatt, please reference the Anti-Fraud Conference.  Hilton Reservations:  All attendees that booked rooms at the Hilton are responsible for cancelling their room reservation.
