10 Reasons to Come to the APASA Conference, Aug 2-3

10: The new location in Wilmot, OH, is easy to access from major highways. If you come in by airplane to Cleveland or Akron/Canton and need help with transportation, let us help get you here... 9: ...and the meeting location is right on the edge of the Holmes County, OH, Amish/Mennonite settlement, providing plenty of opportunities to extend your stay. 8: Our conference site, the Wilderness Center, is a leading land preservation institute in Ohio. Plan to spend time enjoying the nature trails, including six easy loops of about 1 mile each... 7: ...and by meeting here, APASA is supporting another worthy non-profit organization. Part of your registration fee goes directly to the Wilderness Center in support of their environmental mission. 6: Remember Jenn's homemade baked goods during session breaks? She's making them again. 5: Our intriguing panel discussions are a highlight. We have several new topics this year, including plain people artists and economic changes. 4: This conference is not just about the plain people, but plain people's voices are at the table, and often at its head. 3: This is the place to mingle with people who have devoted parts of their lives to studying the Amish and other plain Anabaptist groups. Get answers to your questions. 2: Conference attendees often comment that they take away far more than they expected, and, for a price far below most other professional conferences. If our regular rate is still too much, take the reduced rate. If lodging options are too expensive, let us know and we'll see what we can find for you. 1: The hallmark of APASA conferences is our attendees, an extremely collegial group who are interested in doing good work and learning from each other. We have some fantastic discussions. We want you to be part of them. With three weeks left, we want to know that you're planning to join us as soon as possible.
