2020 Continental-Pacific Regional Conference

March 22-24, 2020
Colorado Springs, CO

Welcome to the NACUFS 2020 Continental Pacific Regional Conference!

The University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (UCCS) is excited to host this years’ combined conference at the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel.  You are in for a treat!  We are located 50 miles south of Denver in the shadow of Pike’s Peak!

Aside from our natural beauty, we hope you as a conference participant will experience great networking opportunities and challenge your mind by attending learning sessions based on NACUFS Body of Knowledge, all while having fun.

Our preconference tour will demonstrate the “Seed to Fork” culture that permeates Colorado Springs with a Sunday morning tour that includes lunch at the UCCS Farmhouse. Learn how The Springs is fueling athletes in our community—from children, to college students, to the most elite Olympic Athletes at the United States Olympic and Paralympic Training Center.

For our conference this year, we are trying something different. Your first evening will be on the UCCS campus at the spectacular Roaring Fork Dining Hall.  You will see culinary challenge participants prepare their recipes with Pike’s Peak looking over their shoulder. Of course, there will be dinner and locally brewed beer, wine and spirits!

Monday and Tuesday will be spent on the grounds of the Forbes Five-Star Broadmoor. Enjoy a fabulous showcase, exciting educational sessions, and delicious food and drink! Then join us for a fun-filled conference closer at Whirlyball. Have you ever played lacrosse while driving a bumper car?

There is no need to have a car during this conference, as transportation will be provided once you settle in at the Broadmoor. This is also a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Spring Break with your family. Come early or stay after the conference to explore beautiful Colorado.  The mountains are calling!

We can’t wait to see you here in Colorado Springs, March 22nd through March 24th!
