APA 2021 Seminar Dates & Updates




A message from our Seminar Chair Mike Gougler










Fellow Professionals,


Plans are moving forward for the 55th Annual APA Seminar to be held August 29 through September 3, 2021 in Chicago.  The conference will be held at the beautiful historic Palmer House Hotel.  Help us celebrate the 100th anniversary of polygraph in the United States.  


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. 

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.

We are exploring several opportunities for scheduled events.  We will have a mid-week event to a Chicago White Sox game.    

A schedule of classes will be posted on the APA website in January.  The schedule will be finalized at the APA winter board meeting.  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 Chicago.

Michael Gougler Seminar Chair
