The Annual Conference will be an in-person event with a playback option following the conference.
The session submission portal is closed.
We expect 850-900 attendees made up of owners and employees of background screening firms, those who provide services for those firms, as well as supporters of the profession. Attendees include CEOs, compliance officers, managers, general counsel and other employees representing a range of small to large firms. Companies and organizations who offer services and products to the screening profession are in attendance.
Registration is not required prior to reserving a room at the host hotel, it is however required to maintain that reservation. PBSA will be cross checking the housing list against attendee registration throughout the booking period and room reservations are subject to cancellation by PBSA if the guest on file is not registered for the conference by August 1, 2024. At past conferences, we have seen large numbers of room cancellations after the cutoff date for the PBSA block, forcing many attendees to stay at alternate hotels unnecessarily and putting PBSA at risk of financial penalties.
Sunday is blue jeans casual attire. Monday and Tuesday are business casual. Layers will help you stay comfortable whether you're in a session or out seeing the sights.
To help you generate support for your participation we've crafted a sample "Request to Attend" letter that you can customize to fit your situation. Take a few minutes to review the schedule, sessions, and confirmed exhibitors and do a little research to determine your approximate travel and incidental costs. Then, customize the sections in the letter highlighted in yellow to reflect your individual costs and how the conference can best serve you and your company. No two companies are quite the same, so feel free to customize the letter as much or as little as needed to best make your case.
