There is some limited street parking along Sycamore and 5th Streets, however only some are two-hour meters.  The easiest accessible garage parking is the garage attached to the First Financial and PNC buildings.  Drivers can navigate to 430 Main Street.  If that is full or for another option, you can park just across 5th street from the First Financial Building in the Columbia Plaza Garage.  Navigate to 250 East 5th Street for that garage.  There is a skywalk to cross over to the First Financial Building.  There are two buildings that are attached, some people end up in the wrong one.  Dinsmore & Shohl is in the one further to the east – First Financial which is at 5th and Sycamore.  (PNC is to the west at 5th and Main.)


Additional parking can also be found in an open log on Sycamore and 7th, under Fountain Square, or in the Great American building on 3rd street.



Visitors should access the second elevator bank in the First Financial building and take that up to the 19th floor (Dinsmore & Shohl’s conference floor).  Receptionists there will check visitor names off the RSVP list and will then direct you to the appropriate space for our event.

The Infragard Cincinnati Members Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization serving critical infrastructure organizations in Greater Cincinnati.

InfraGard is dedicated to protecting the United States. To maintain trust within the membership, all applicants undergo a background check by the FBI (for this reason InfraGard membership is currently limited to United States citizens). Applications are screened according to criteria defined by the local FBI field office.

With InfraGard membership comes great responsibility. We value active members, willing to devote time, effort and talent to build this organization and protect the American people. You will be a representative of the nation’s largest volunteer organization dedicated to protecting critical infrastructure.
