A message from our Seminar Chair Mike Gougler

Fellow Professionals,

Plans continue to move forward for the 54th Annual APA Seminar to be held August 25 thru August 30, 2019 in Orlando, Florida. The conference will be held at the beautiful Hilton Bonnet Creek, adjacent to Disney World. The Bonnet Creek Hilton recently was designated an Official Disney World Hotel which permits, with park entry tickets linked to the hotel, extra park hours and other benefits such as free shuttles to all Disney properties. More information on the Bonnet Creek Hilton is available at https://www.hiltonbonnetcreek.com/ . As always, the hotel rate is fixed at the U.S. government per diem (which is $122 plus tax and fees) as well as other benefits including discounted food and beverage at Hilton restaurants and bars.

We are anticipating a large turnout based on the quality training classes being offered, coupled with the very favorable room rate. Please make your reservations as soon as possible, as we have already sold over fifty percent of our allotment of rooms and anticipate selling out well in advance of the seminar.

We will have a Sunday evening reception and a Thursday night banquet. We are not going to have a formal scheduled Tuesday night event during the Orlando seminar. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to Disney and other entertainment locations. 

A schedule of classes is currently posted on the APA website.  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 Orlando.

Michael Gougler
