The “Big Game” Watch Party

Sunday, February 12, 2023, 4:30pm – 9:45pm

On Sunday, February 12, you will have the best of both worlds, a win-win, so to speak! You get essential TRAINING HOURS and a chance to see the BIG GAME with hundreds of your colleagues and fellow football fans…on a BIG TV SCREEN too!! The opening session and reception with the vendors will begin early so you can enjoy all of the Super Bowl festivities in the comfort of the hotel, the Philadelphia Marriott, in The City of Brotherly Love – The Birthplace of America! A special experience awaits you – gameday food and beer; contests; and cool door prizes including autographed footballs and an all-expense paid trip to APPA’s 48th Annual Training Institute in New York in August 2023 (includes registration, travel, and hotel).

Yes, training and football intersect on this special day. APPA members are saying the Philly regional training institute will be the best of the five events. So wear your favorite NFL Team’s jersey and other stuff, and the best dressed will win a really, really nice prize. We are counting down to the BIG TRAINING and the BIG GAME!!!

Question: What are similarities between POs and football players? 

Answer: Both require perseverance, self-sacrifice, hard work, goal-setting, and dedication.

Cancellation Policy

APPA’s no refund policy cut-off date is January 16, 2023. While there are valid reasons an individual cannot attend the training institute after registering, especially during the pandemic, unfortunately, the association must hold firm to this policy. APPA is bound by contractual obligations to the meeting venue to cover costs and/or penalties.

APPA values all members and stakeholders. If an individual is unable to attend the in-person training institute, regardless of the reason, APPA will transfer (substitute) registration to another individual from the same agency. Written requests must be sent to Kimberly Mills.

Thanks for your ongoing support of the association, and more importantly, for your belief in professional development and networking.
