The Washington, D.C. Trip Is Back For 2023!
The FBI Portland Citizens Academy Alumni Association is excited to announce that, in conjunction with the FBI Portland office, the Alumni trip Washington, D.C. is back for 2023!
The trip is scheduled for December 4 (Monday) through December 8 (Friday) and is open to alumni members and their adult guests 18 years of age or older, and all guest must pass a basic background check.
December 3 (Sunday) is the preferred travel day to arrive in Washington, D.C. and either December 8 (Friday) or December 9 (Saturday) are the recommended travel days to return home.
Those who want to reduce the length of the trip can do so; however the required events are anticipated to be Tuesday (FBI HQ) and Wednesday (FBI Academy at Quantico).
This is an incredible and unique opportunity. Included are exclusive tours of the FBI Headquarters and of the FBI Academy at Quantico. The Quantico tour includes Hogan’s Alley, the firearms ranges, the FBI Laboratory and the Tactical Emergency Vehicle Operations Center (TEVOC) among other interesting sites!
Be prepared to walk several miles on the Quantico tour, indoors and outdoors through various terrain, and dress appropriately for the cold December weather.
Tours may include the following:
- The Pentagon
- Smithsonian Museums
- Holocaust Museum
- U.S. Capitol
- Tour of the D.C. Monuments
- Arlington National Cemetery
- Spy Museum
Note: There is a direct Alaska Airlines flight each day, each way, leaving Portland about 10:00 am and leaving DCA/Ronald Regan National Airport at about 6:00 pm. This means that traveling Sunday gets you in early enough on Sunday evening to be ready to go Monday morning. Going home, you can do activities most of the day before heading to the airport late on Friday afternoon if you would like to limit hotel costs.
Attendees are responsible for booking their hotel. Here are some options near FBI Headquarters. There are many other options both in the area around HQ and further out of the immediate area (Alexandria, Arlington, etc.) that may be less expensive, but they will require a metro ride to HQ.
We need a minimum of 25 people and if the minimum of attendees is not reached the trip will be at risk of having to cancel.
Alumni members must be current with their 2023 Annual Membership dues to attend this trip. We will check to confirm if you are current with your dues. If you are not current with your dues, we will contact you and ask you to pay your dues for 2023. If you are not sure if you have or have not paid your dues, please email [hidden email] and we will check this for you.
A $100 per person non-refundable deposit is required to attend this trip, which will be used by the FBI Portland CAAA to purchase some of the non-FBI tour tickets as required. Alumni members are responsible for their own airfare transportation and hotel reservations as well as food costs.
To register, complete the Registration/Disclosure form and pay the deposit. See below on where to send the form and how to pay your deposit. The Registration/Disclosure form without the deposit, or vice versa, will not save your spot for the trip.
Registration is due by May 31, 2023.
Those who register will be told when we have met our attendance threshold so you may purchase your airline tickets at that time. We make every effort to provide the tours listed; however circumstances outside of our control sometimes force us to make changes to the itinerary.
