APA 2022 Seminar Dates & Updates




 A message from our Seminar Chair Pam Shaw






Hello everyone!

Plans continue to progress for the 56th Annual APA Seminar to be held August 28 thru September 2, 2022 in Orlando, Florida. Our hotel site, Hilton Bonnett Creek, is adjacent to Disney World and the hotel offers free shuttles to and from the parks. We encourage everyone to take advantage of all that this location has to offer.

We have been at this location previously, and if the past is any indicator of the future, we can expect a large turnout. Reduced gatherings and limited availability of most polygraph training over the past 1.5 to 2 years, further improves the likelihood of a tremendous showing of our poly- graph community. We have secured great room rates for this location, so please be sure to reserve your hotel rooms early so you can take advantage and not miss out on the opportunity to stay on-site.

The training schedule continues to be a work in progress, but a partial schedule of classes will be posted on the website in January. The schedule will be finalized after the APA Board Meeting in early April, which will then be posted on our website and published in future editions of the magazine.

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 dis- count by paying early so we can better project the number of headsets required. (No headset will be issued without payment.)

As you make plans to attend the seminar, I hope you will also consider nominating deserving individuals for the various APA awards. Let’s recognize those around us who are doing great work for and within our profession!

On one other administrative note about the seminar, please know that at this time we are not planning to have a scheduled outing/event during our week in Orlando. This decision has been made in light of our close proximity to Disney, Downtown

Disney and various other family entertainment hot spots that will be competing for your attention and desires. That being said, know that a couple new events are being explored for your enjoyment, networking and camaraderie. Walt Goodson has graciously agreed to work on setting up a 5k fun run for our group. Jonathan Floyd has also graciously agreed to work on setting up a golf outing for those who would be interested. Information for both of these events will be posted in the coming months, so please be on the lookout.

I look forward to bringing more seminar information to you in the year ahead, but for now, I wish each of you a wonderful and blessed holiday season! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Pam Shaw
Seminar Program Chair
