CFSI Symposium and Dinner Logistics Update

We look forward to seeing you all at the Washington Hilton tomorrow and Thursday! In advance of the event, please note the following logistical changes:

Seminar Room Change

The seminars will now be held in the Kalorama Room at the Washington Hilton. This room is located on the Lobby Level of the hotel. Please see the hotel map here

Parking

Parking is available on a first-come-first-serve basis at the Washington Hilton garage. The entrance is located at Florida and 19th St. NW. If parking is not available in the hotel garage, there is day parking available at Universal South (by the Hilton on Connecticut Ave NW).

Road Closures

We are informed that there will be rolling road closures around the hotel between 9AM and 1PM on Wednesday, April 6th. Please plan to build in extra time if you are driving. 

COVID Protocol in the District of Columbia

The District of Columbia currently does not require proof of vaccination to attend indoor events. Furthermore, masks will not be required in the Washington Hilton and in restaurants, however, private businesses can impose their own policies. The mask requirement remains in place for public transit, including taxi, the metro, and rideshare services, but masks are optional on Capitol Hill. Specific Hill offices, however, may have different protocols. Please plan accordingly if you schedule activities outside of the hotel.
