Annual FTA Drug and Alcohol Program National Conference

15th Annual FTA Drug and Alcohol Program National Conference (POSTPONED)

April 14-16, 2020 / San Diego, CA

FTA is postponing the 15th Annual Drug and Alcohol Program National Conference. We are working to schedule a new date for later in the year.

This free three-day conference will provide attendees with a background on Prevention of Alcohol Misuse and Prohibited Drug Use in Transit Operators (49 CFR Part 655) and Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs (49 CFR Part 40).

Attendees can choose from a variety of sessions to customize their experience for the specific needs of their employer and knowledge level of the regulations. The conference will include separate training for both beginner and advanced Drug and Alcohol Program Managers (DAPMs), various other sessions catered to running a compliant drug and alcohol program, and an update from the Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance (ODAPC). Additionally, there will be networking opportunities, access to FTA and other Federal drug and alcohol compliance experts and FTA drug and alcohol program compliance auditors, and much more.

While there is no registration fee to attend this conference, attendees are responsible for all travel related expenses, including all meals. Space is limited, and registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
