2021 AAPL Annual Meeting

Save the Date for Banff!

AAPL's 67th Annual Meeting - June 23-26, 2021

Majestic mountains, surreally colored lakes, breathtaking views and endless outdoor adventures — Banff, Alberta, has it all — including (hopefully) AAPL's 67th Annual Meeting. We are currently planning to host the Annual Meeting in traditional fashion along with an online hybrid component. Registration opens in January 2021! 

Don't forget your passport! 
Please keep in mind applying for a new passport or renewing an expired passport is taking much longer than normal due to significantly reduced passport operations as a result of the pandemic. For more information visit the U.S. Department of State.
