What Happens at an APR Member Meeting?

General Sessions occur at the beginning and end of the meetings. APR's President offers a "State of the APR" address and other presentations tackle topics of broad industry appeal.

Committee Meetings mostly happen on the middle day. All attendees may participate in any committee meetings they choose, with occasional exceptions that are marked on the schedule.

Workshops & Special Events occur throughout the meeting and are open to all attendees.

Receptions are a prime opportunity to network with other APR member companies. An attendee list is provided in advance of the meeting for your benefit.

Local Opportunities are unique at every meeting. Tour the MSS Optical Sorter facility in Nashville this June! Find the flyer in the Documents section below and email if interested.
