  • Get-to-know Chat Session
  • Tour of the US Naval Academy
  • CFA Board and Task Group Meetings (Open)
  • Tour of Bartley Corporation
  • Tour of Modern Foundations
  • Optional Tour of Construction Site/Cement Plant

This event will include two dining opportunities as a group and sponsorship opportunities exist for any local, regional or national vendor.

Hotel information will be made available soon.  Individuals will be responsible for their own travel plans, hotel room and will participate in an average meal/drink/event fee based on attendance to be invoiced by the Association.

Non-member participation is unavailable.  For interest in CFA membership and participation, email Skye Kelley, CFA Member Engagement.


Naval Academy tours are a must-do! This group tour will walk the Yard’s scenic walkways by foot and learn the history of this hallowed space. You’ll enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a midshipman and the rich and tumultuous history of one of the greatest fighting forces on Earth!

Bus transportation will be provided.

Baltimore, Columbia and Annapolis, Maryland is an important part of the Mid-Atlantic region. Rich in coastal history, politics and our military, it is also home for a large number of CFA members. Two of these, Bartley Corp and Modern Foundations, will be toured and time will be spent with their leadership and learning of their regional experience.
