2014 APA Seminar

Important Notice: 

If you have reserved a hotel room at the Sheraton Seattle for the upcoming seminar, but have not registered, you need to register immediately.  If you reserved a room, but do not intend to come to the seminar, please call the National Office and release the room.  The APA has exhausted its room allotment at the Sheraton, and your cancellation will open space for those who wish to come.  


The 2014 Annual Seminar of the American Polygraph Association will be held 7 - 12 September in Seattle, Washington.  

Fellow members:

It is one month until the seminar in Seattle, Washington.  We are working with members of the Northwest Polygraph Association to ensure that this year’s event will be a memorable one.  The APA is extending the APA membership rate to all members of the NWPA who are in good standing with the association.  Don Clendennen is coordinating the effort with the Northwest Polygraph Association.

We will have an outstanding program that will emphasize “Act With Integrity”, the theme of this year’s conference.

Special thanks to Steve Duncan who is handling the technology issues for the classrooms.

Please get your nominations in for the annual APA awards.  Skip Webb is leading the awards committee this year and he will coordinate the process with Donnie Dutton as the General chair.

We will have interpreter services in classroom A  throughout the seminar.  Thanks to Lafayette Instruments for again providing the interpreters for the APA seminar.  Chris Fausett has continued to be one of our most generous supporters. Ray Nelson is again handling the coordination of translators.

Thanks to Melanie Javens and Complete Equity markets for once again providing support to the association.

The Sheraton Seattle is the fabulous venue right in the heart of downtown near Pike Place Market! The room rate is government per diem until our allotment is sold out.  Rooms are limited so please book early.

Thanks to Lisa Jacocks, Manager of the APA National Office for organizing the Tuesday Night event, the Seattle Mariners versus the Houston Astros!  Please click on the link below for a description of the event.
