Online registration for the Pacific Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association is open. The 2017 meeting will take place April 12–15 in Seattle, Washington.

Register now to take advantage of the early bird registration rates: $115 for APA members, $230 for non-members, and $35 for student members. Online registration will close March 29. Pacific meeting registration will not be available March 30 through April 11. You will be able to register on-site at the meeting; however, on-site registration rates will be $50 higher than early bird registration for all categories.

Please note: You’ll save an additional $5 on meeting registration if you opt not to receive a paper copy of the program. The meeting program is available online, and our free meeting app for smartphones and tablets will also contain the full program.
