Call for Ideas

APPA welcomes your topic and speaker ideas for future APPA conferences and events. To submit your idea for consideration, complete this form.

Please note, conference topics are generally determined 6-8 months before the event is held. Ideas will be kept on file for a full year, so if the agenda for the conference has already been determined, your ideas will be considered for the next year’s event, or in case any space opens up for the upcoming program. You will be contacted only if your idea is selected for an upcoming conference.

Hotel Reservations Alert

A third party claiming to represent APPA is contacting attendees of upcoming APPA conferences and offering assistance with hotel reservations. No such third party is affiliated with APPA or authorized to represent us — please do NOT make hotel reservations through any third party that may contact you by phone or email.

APPA maintains room blocks with specially negotiated rates at all our conference hotels and attendees are encouraged to only use the online reservation links, phone numbers, and discount codes available on the APPA website for each conference under the “Hotel” tab.
