Hello Chapter members and friends,
Planning for next year’s FBI NAA Chapter conference is well underway. The Sunway Resort and Spa is an exclusive accommodation and conference venue. I have just returned from a meeting with conference planners from the Royal Malaysian Police and our partners from the FBI and PACOM.
There are two airports in Malaysia. The airports are called Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. Terminal 2 is the old Low Cost Carrier terminal that Air Asia X operates from. Travel to Sunway from the airport is about a 45 minutes car drive however this depends on traffic.
Please check the visa requirements for your country. As an Australian citizen I did not need a visa to enter.
Transport from the airport is not being organised for this conference. Organising transport for our conference has become very difficult so next year you will need to organise your own transport. This can be done through the hotel or you can book your own vehicle. The ride share (UBER) company in Malaysia is GRABB. I downloaded GRABB and used it while in Malaysia. It was very good and better priced than a taxi. Modern, clean cars with hospitable drivers.
The conference will follow the same format as our previous Asia Pacific Chapter conferences with a few timing changes:
Sunday registration from 12 midday
7pm to 9.30pm around the pool area.
Monday Formal Opening 8:30am – (Business Attire) then training sessions
Monday night Cultural Dinner 7pm- off site- smart casual
Tuesday Training sessions
Wednesday – Yellow Brick Jungle hike- Training Sessions
Wednesday night – Formal Dinner – Mess Kit or Business attire
Thursday- Cultural touring off site
Room rates: Premier Room RM 485 – Premier Room with Club Lounge Access RM 585.
There are also Junior Suites from RM 685 – these also have Club Lounge Access
The Partners program will allow partners to attend all after hours functions – Presidents reception, Cultural Dinner, Farewell Dinner and Opening Ceremony. The cost of this program will be cost recovery. Unfortunately we cannot separate the events so the cost will be for all even if your partner cannot attend one or more of these events. The cost of this program will be available in February 2020.
There is a small theme park and a small zoo at the resort. One entry fee. We will be seeking a discounted entry rate for the park.
