The Atlantic Chapter of APPA will be once again hosting our Annual Fall professional Development Conference on November 7th and 8th. New this year is our online registration system that will accelerate up the registration process. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis and last year we reached our capacity of the venue.
Our Keynote Speaker will be Mr Bill Carr.
