2017 Annual Professional Development Conference
NAHO will be conducting its 2017 Conference in our nation's capital, Washington, DC. NAHO’s conference venue is the Embassy Suites-DC Convention Center. This newly renovated hotel is centrally located in the vibrant Penn Quarter neighborhood, and is in walking distance of the White House, Capitol Hill, the Smithsonian museums, the Washington Monument, and the shops and restaurants at City Center and Gallery Place.
This annual gathering provides NAHO members, attorneys involved in the practice of administrative law and all who are involved in some aspect of administrative adjudication with training and professional development. It is an opportunity for networking and provides a forum in which to meet and discuss ideas and issues impacting the administrative hearing process.
The Conference is structured to deliver an array of educational courses on general administrative law topics, hearing practice, and specialized subjects such as assessing credibility, working with interpreters, courtroom security, special evidentiary problems, the self-representing litigant, and ethical issues for lawyers and judges in administrative proceedings. In addition, this year's conference will feature a live oral argument before a three-judge panel of Oregon's Court of Appeals.
NAHO prides itself on the quality of its faculty. Instructors include professors who are recognized experts in administrative law, local circuit and appellate judges, attorneys, and experienced administrative adjudicators. The conference also includes interactive panel and roundtable discussions led by skilled, knowledgeable administrative hearing officials.
Washington is a great place to visit so, save the date! Mark your calendars for the 2017 NAHO Professional Development Conference, September 10 through 13! REGISTRATION BEGINS JUNE 2017!
