APT Educational Conference 2018

This year there will be no APT Golden Nugget, I regret to say. We have had many discussions on our course of action to move APT into the future. After several years of poor attendance the reality is we need to come up with something better for our membership. We are looking at taking part in the World Trade Show also in Las Vegas two weeks after we were going to do our event. We feel that APT needs to spend our money on updating our website, our online training, and attending conventions to present the PDTT. It will also help APT to be more visible throughout the United States. We will establish an advertising budget and look for creative ways to encourage artists to join APT. Thank you to those who volunteered to present training to the attendees, who spent their money to support our efforts. Thank you to the volunteers, who sold raffle tickets, helped Julie at registration and did all sorts of odd jobs. Hopefully 2019 will work, but we have many changes to make before we can afford to do it again.
