The 2014 Eastern Division meeting will be held December 27–30 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Meeting Registration

Online registration is now open! You will be able to register online up to and including the time of the meeting itself, but please note that the advance registration rates end on December 15 at midnight Eastern time. Advance registration rates are $40 less for all categories than rates for registration after December 15 (either online or at the registration desk). To register at the member rates, you must be signed in.

Meeting Program

The meeting program is available on the APA website. Paper copies of the program are no longer mailed to members in advance of the meeting. The registration packet at the meeting will include a hard copy of the program, including all meeting room information.

Watch the APA Eastern Division website and the APA Eastern Facebook and Twitter pages for periodic announcements about high-profile sessions.

Hotel Reservations

Hotel reservations at the conference rates can be made through links on the APA website. There are separate links for student members (who qualify for the reduced student rate) and all other attendees. These links are also included below:

Student members ($125 per night, plus tax)

All other attendees ($135 per night, plus tax)

Please note: It is important that those attending the meeting stay in the conference hotel, rather than at other hotels, and specifically in the block of rooms reserved for APA meeting attendees (as shown in the above links). The reason for this is simple economics. The financial viability of the meeting depends on our meeting our contractual obligations, the most important of which (by far) is that we fill the number of sleeping rooms specified in the contract. Failure to do so results in a significant penalty, which, as a non-profit organization, the APA is ill-equipped to pay.

Interview Suites

As usual, reservations for interview suites are handled separately from the regular hotel room reservations. Suite reservations can be made online; the website has full details of the amenities in each type of suite.

Reception Tables

We are accepting reception table reservations and payments online again this year. Reservations by mail and fax will also be accepted. The charge for a reception table is $50; this includes a table at both evening receptions (December 28 and 29). Reserving a reception table is a great way for departments, committees, societies, and exhibitors to connect with attendees and gain visibility at the meeting.

The program and executive committees extend a cordial invitation to all APA members to come and take part in the 2014 Eastern Division meeting.
