Event Agenda and Check In

We're pleased to share the 2023 Family Gathering agenda. The most important thing for you to know is the location of the FOP Family Gathering event check-in (located just past the atrium space where breakfast is served) at the hotel. You will want to be sure and check in to get your name badge which gets you into all activities and provides you important reminders about any community activities you have signed up to participate in. 

Check-in for the Family Gathering will open at 8 am on Thursday, November 16th at the Conference Lobby Desk. 

Meals and Attire 

The Gathering kicks off with a dinner and welcome reception at 7 PM CST. All of the meals (including breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday) will be served buffet style and items with gluten, shellfish, or dairy will be marked to accommodate any special dietary needs. We have made the hotel aware of all dietary needs that were provided at registration including the need for pureed food. If there is something else you need, please notify us at [email protected] and we will work with the hotel to best accommodate your needs.

The hotel provides the following meal/drink services free of charge:

Breakfast Hours: Monday-Friday, 6 am to 9 am, Saturday-Sunday, 7 am to 10:30 am

Evening Reception (Drinks and Snacks): 5:30 to 7:30 pm every night

There is a restaurant (Halfords Restaurant) located in the hotel as well.

Attire for the Family Gathering is casual to business casual. The most important factor is that you be comfortable.

With the Family Gathering taking place in Dallas this year, the theme of Friday night's dinner and dance will be Country Western. During this special dinner, there will be music by a Dallas local musician. Feel free to embrace the country-western style in your attire for Friday evening's dinner!
