The 2017 Eastern Division meeting will be held January 4–7 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, MD.

Meeting Registration
Online registration is now open! You will be able to register online at the early bird rates until December 21 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Please note that online registration will be available only until December 21. After that date, online registration will no longer be available, but you will still be able to register at the registration desk on-site at the meeting.

The early bird registration rates are $50 less for all categories than for the on-site registration rates. To register at the member rates, you must be signed in.

Please note: You’ll save an additional $5 on meeting registration if you don’t need a paper copy of the program. Our free meeting app for smartphones and tablets contains the full program.

Meeting Program
The meeting program is available on the APA website. Meeting registrants will also have access to the full program, including room locations, in our meeting app. Paper copies of the program are no longer mailed in advance, but will be available at the meeting.

Please note: You’ll save an additional $5 on meeting registration if you don’t need a paper copy of the program. Those who go paperless will have the option to purchase a program for $5 at the registration desk.

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. The per-night room rates are $159 (plus applicable taxes and fees) for regular members and non-members, and $129 (plus applicable taxes and fees) for student members.

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. 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.

For information about interview suites, reception tables, placement services, travel assistance, and child and dependent care subsidies, please visit the APA website. All other meeting-related inquiries should be directed to

The program and executive committees extend a cordial invitation to all APA members to come and take part in the 2017 Eastern Division meeting.
