Look! Up in the Sky! It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's the 2019 APA Annual Convention & Trade Show!


We all know being a HERO is part of your day job, so this year we thought we’d celebrate your super powers and abilities! We’re calling all heroes to report to Headquarters (a.k.a. Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort) for the 2019 APA Annual Convention and Trade Show, June 9 – 12.

ard-working. Essential. Relevant. Outstanding. Empathetic. Servant-minded


We’re excited to have our “greatness guru” back as this year’s keynote speaker. Don Yaeger will be back to inspire and challenge us with his message. If you don’t know Don – he is an award-winning keynote speaker, business leadership coach, eleven-time New York Times best-selling author, longtime Associate Editor for Sports Illustrated, and one of our favorite people!

Now let’s talk about the Bash. We all know that where you find heroes you also find villains…which one will you be? You have the option of saving the day or creating a little chaos!

Will you be saying “Up, up and away!” or “Have you ever danced with devil in the pale moonlight?”


…Just kidding - Mwahahahaha (that’s an evil laugh by the way)

Note: Our thoughts naturally go to the comics and Disney for our heroes and villains but don’t be afraid to think outside the box. You’ve set the bar high the past couple of years when it comes to embracing our convention themes and we can’t wait to see you in Destin!

So now the only question is ARE YOU GOING TO ANSWER THE CALL?

Online Registration Information/Tips
Because of the amount of information requested/displayed on the registration tabs we thought it might be helpful to offer a few notes.

Attendee Information Tab
This tab is pretty straightforward; however, please make sure you indicate your t-shirt size if you are registering for the full convention or ordering additional t-shirts.  That sometimes gets missed.  Also, if you are signing up to attend the Auburn or Samford Breakfast please indicate in the box below the number of people attending the breakfast.  We need to know if you are planning to bring a spouse or guest to the breakfast.

Attendee Selections Tab
There's a lot of choices on this tab so we thought it might be helpful to explain how the registration and tickets are organized.  The top section labeled required has the different registration options available for convention.  You must select one option from the top section or you won't be able to complete the registration process.  If you want to purchase tickets only you would choose the last option in the required section.

The optional section includes the guest/spouse registration.  Following the guest registration is the different options for purchasing additional tickets for our events.  Please note that there are multiple options for each event (i.e., quantity, adult or child ticket).

Below the additional tickets are options for ordering additional t-shirts.  After t-shirts are the options for student sponsorships.

As always, if you have questions or need assistance please call the APA office at 334-271-4222.

CPE Credit
In order to receive credit for this program you must provide APA with your NABP e-Profile ID as well as the month and day of your date of birth.  In addition, you must sign-in at the beginning of the program and complete an evaluation form at the conclusion of the program.  No exceptions.  No partial credit will be given for the CPE programs so it is important that you arrive on time.  Your credit will be uploaded to CPE Monitor within four weeks of the program. You must provide APA with all required information within 60 days of the program to receive credit.  APA cannot award CE credit after 60 days.
