Fellow Professionals,

 

Plans are moving forward for the 55th Annual APA Seminar to be held August 29 through September 3, 2021 in Austin. The conference will be held at the beautiful Austin Hilton in the historic 6th street entertainment district. Help us celebrate the 100th anniversary of polygraph in the United States.

Your board of directors, understanding the current COVID environment, has approved a reduction in the 2021 seminar fee to $300 for APA members. With this fee reduction, quality training, and a very favorable room rate, we encourage to make your reservations early, as we expect to sell out our allotment of rooms.

For those of you who have asked, the fee for the annual seminar this year in Austin has only been reduced for members.  If you are not an APA member, you can apply for membership and pay the membership fee. This will make you make you eligible to pay the member fee for seminar fee at the lower rate of $300 instead of $550.  This will afford you a total cost of $470 for membership and seminar fees as opposed to paying $550 just for the seminar.

 

Wire Transfer Information

Please contact Lisa Jacocks , the APA National Office Manager for money wire payment instructions. Be sure to include: the name of the Bank, purpose of payment (Seminar fee, Membership dues etc.) and names of each person (first and last), for which the payment applies.

 

Pagos por transferencia de dinero

Póngase en contacto con Lisa Jacocks, gerente de la oficina nacional de APA para obtener instrucciones de pago por transferencia de dinero.

Asegúrese de incluir: el nombre del Banco, el propósito de pago (cuota de seminario, cuotas de membresía, etc.) y los nombres de cada persona (primera y última), para la que se aplica el pago.

 

 

To apply to be a member of the APA, please visit the APA Website at www.polygraph.org and under the membership tab, you can find the application and submit it online.

The Hilton has a program named Hilton EventReady with CleanStay, a global meeting and events program designed to ensure a clean, flexible, safe and socially distant meeting. Below are two links describing the CleanStay program.

There will be no formal mid-week event to allow you the flexibility to enjoy the entertainment district.

A schedule of classes is currently posted on the APA website. Please remember to nominate deserving individuals for the various APA awards. The deadline for nominations is June 1, 2021.

If there is sufficient interest, interpretation services will 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.
