Every year, AAHPA members come together for our annual conference. Anyone who has been to a conference will attest - it's good people, talking about important and good work. You will learn more than enough to cover the cost of attending through increased savings, efficiency, professional networks and grant opportunities throughout the rest of the year.
Our corporate members rotate the responsibility for hosting the conference. Members can login to see past conference presentations, and all AAHPA awards are available to peruse at any time.
While Covid-19 means we have postponed our Nome conference, we look forward to meeting in Nome in 2021. Until then, we're bringing you a port & harbor lunchtime series that we hope you'll find interesting and engaging, and provide you with valuable connections and networking with your colleagues around the state.
