2022 Conference: A note from Dennis Cooley and Julie Pedroni

Dear APPE Colleagues, 

Julie Pedroni and I, Co-Chairs of the APPE Program Committee, want to first thank each and every one of you for being such an important part of what makes APPE the community of scholars and professionals it is. APPE’s reputation as the place to present and hear top quality work in a friendly, engaged atmosphere would not exist without your contribution. Thank you! 

We also want to take a moment to update you on APPE’s February 2022 meeting in Cincinnati. We will be an in-person meeting for the vast majority of our presentations next year, in part because of our financial commitments. There will be some online presence for those who cannot make it because of extenuating circumstances, but please rest assured that APPE is back for that personal interaction that all of our members value so much.
