Conference Agenda

For the past 73 years, the North Carolina Police Executives Association has had the pleasure of hosting our annual summer training conference. Unfortunately, given the current situation with COVID-19 in North Carolina, the NCPEA Executive Board has cancelled the 74th Annual Summer Conference scheduled for July 13th-15th in Wilmington, North Carolina. While the cancellation is disappointing, we believe this is the best decision as the health and safety of participants is our highest priority.In making this difficult choice, the Executive Board considered guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), concerns from participants, and the travel restrictions placed on many of our sponsors, vendors, local municipalities, registered attendees and their families.
Our Executive Board is currently implementing new innovative ways to stay connected with our members. We are currently streamlining a system to process each refund and we will contact you directly via email. Again, thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.

Join us in Wilmington, NC, and you will have the opportunity to:
