October 2016 Newsletter Article

Dear Region IX and X APA Members,

It’s about that time again where we as region members can come together and enjoy networking and discussing the latest and best research from our fellow members.

The Region IX-X APA meeting will once again take place in beautiful Monterey, California February 11-12, 2017. This year we will be changing venues for the conference to the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa On Del Monte Golf Course at Old Golf Course Rd, Monterey, CA 93940. This will also be where we will have discounted rooms available. It will be a great opportunity to take advantage of visiting this beautiful part of the region and join us for what will be another fantastic meeting.  We know that similar to last year, we will have a record number of scientific abstracts, works in progress, and workshop submissions. We are excited to showcase all of the exciting scholarly work that is being done by our colleagues in the region.  As noted in the past abstracts that may be submitted to PAS can also be submitted to the Regional APA IX, X meeting.  Abstract and works in progress submissions will be open from November 1st through the 30th.

Our meeting format will again include roundtable discussions of scientific abstracts, and works in progress, giving the authors a chance to present and receive feedback on their work.  There will also be abstract oral presentations, a keynote address, and ample opportunity for networking with your fellow APA Region IX, X colleagues.

For additional information regarding registration and hotel information please see the regional page on the APA website which will be posted soon.
We would also like to introduce our new region Co-Chairs, for region IX Patricia Castillo who will be joining Michelle Thompson, and for Region X Rochelle Cason-Wilkerson, and Sunitha Kaiser who will be joining Jenny Reese. We look forward to seeing you all in Monterey!
