Over the last few days we have posted a great deal of new information about the upcoming annual meeting in Seattle. In addition to information about registering for seminars (posted last week), you can now find abstracts of almost all papers to be presented at the meeting as well as information on special events at the meeting. In the latter document please note especially that the President’s Reception on Saturday afternoon, January 5, will celebrate the successful conclusion of the Gateway Campaign. The Board of Directors has therefore approved a larger budget for hors d’oeuvres and snacks at this event than has been the custom in recent years. The Board urges all APA members to attend this celebration.
Also, don’t forget to book your hotel room in Seattle while convention rates are still available at the Grand Hyatt Seattle Hotel and the Sheraton Seattle Hotel. Both hotels are adjacent to the Washington State Convention Center, the site of almost all academic sessions. Committee meetings and some placement interviews will take place in the Sheraton. Institutions who rent their own suites to conduct placement interviews will do so at the Hyatt.
