6. For the Regional in St Louis will they actually have classes on Sunday or just Monday and Tuesday?

Glad that the regional locations/dates are starting to come out... I'm not able to attend the national conference so I'm shooting for one of these. :)

I registered yesterday

And got a $100 discount because I was one of the first 100 to register. Check it out, it may still be available. Find me at the conference as I am a GREAT guide for St. Louis!! (I can tell you the good restaurants, and especially how to find Ted Drewes for frozen custard, the Hill to find great Italian Food or South Grand for Aisian food!! We have a lot to choose from in our town!

Hawaii

I saw that too. I actually called AAPC to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. Been a cold, snowy March in Northeast! I'm just wondering if expense will be a hard sell to some employers. But great location.

Haha! I would love to go but airfare alone to Hawaii is pretty steep. It would be amazing if I could make it work!

Melanie said they are considering 2 additional Regionals to St. Louis. Perhaps it's because they recognize the cost associated with going to Hawaii. The same for those in Hawaii to us states side this gives them a great opportunity to attend!

Stay tuned for official announcements on the AAPC website.

Saint Louis Regional

Come to St. Louis!! We'll have a great time! Guaranteed! I know that Melanie is working on topics right now, but they won't be posted until she gets all of her speakers, but there will be a wide variety of presentations and I think that you will find lots to like! The Saint Louis West Chapter will be glad to help people find their way around and point out some of the great things to see in your off time from the conference. The Arch is only the beginning! We have a great Art Museum, History Museum, Science Center and Planetarium, not to mention the World Class Zoo. All are free except for parking fees. We've got it all! Unfortunately the Cardinals are playing out of town during the conference but you can still see Busch Stadium and experience Ballpark Village! I think you will love St. Louis!

Hawaii would be awesome, and the hotel rate is not outrageous considering the location, but airfare is a little pricey. Hoping to go to Orlando for Healthcon in the spring!

Has anyone signed up for Hawaii? I just did this morning so that I didn't miss out on the price. Excited for my first conference and you can't beat the location. :)

Saltlake City Agenda

Just got the email regarding Regional in Saltlake City, Utah. I am very much interested in that one. My supervisor wants to take a look at the agenda before saying yes. Any idea of when will the agenda come out?
