A message from our Seminar Chair Mike Gougler

Fellow Professionals,

Plans are moving forward for the 53rd Annual APA Seminar to be held August 26 thru August 31, 2018 in Austin, Texas.  The conference will be held at the beautiful Austin Hilton Hotel.

We are anticipating a large turnout based on the quality training classes being offered, coupled with a very favorable room rate.  Please make your reservations early, as we expect to sell out our allotment of rooms. 

There will not be a scheduled event for Tuesday night.  We encourage everyone to enjoy the local night life in the downtown Austin area.   

A schedule of classes is now posted on the website.  The remainder of the schedule should be finalized within the next 60 days.  Please remember to nominate deserving individuals for the various APA awards.

Interpretation services will again be offered in Classroom A on Monday through Friday for all classes.  For those wanting to take advantage of these services, the cost will be $100 per person if you pay at the door.  Those paying in advance before arriving at the seminar will be charged $50.  Please take advantage of the discount by paying early so we can better project the number of headsets required.  (No headset will be issued without payment.) 

I would again like to thank all of our sponsors for their support.

See you in Austin.

Michael Gougler
