There are two weeks remaining to get the early bird discount on registration for the APA Pacific Division meeting in Seattle, WA! Online registration closes on March 29. Pacific meeting registration will not be available March 30 through April 11. If you don’t register online by March 29, you can still register on-site at the meeting—but note that on-site registration rates are $50 higher than early bird registration for all categories.

Register now!

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.

In addition to the presidential address, prize lectures, committee sessions, and special Association for Symbolic Logic sessions, this year’s program features many invited and book symposia. The list below is just a small sample; see the meeting program for a complete list.
