The entrance for the conference center is at the Left Field Gate on South Capitol Street. Click here to see a map.  A CHP Association representative will be greet you outside the gate and show you how to get in, they should be easily identifiable by the rather loud orange shirt with the CHP Association logo on it. The conference will be held in the Roosevelt Conference Room on the left field mezzanine level.

Nationals Park is easily accessible by metro, taxi, and driving. The closest metro station is the Navy Yard stop on the Green Line. Follow the signs for the ballpark exit from the station, walk straight towards the stadium, and take a right once you reach the stadium to reach the Left Field Gate around the corner. For those driving, there are multiple public parking lots off M Street near the park.
