The 2014 Annual Conference was held in National Harbor, Maryland November 9-11, 2014.
Moving Forward, Growing Strong!
We had plenty in store at the 2014 conference as AJPA took National Harbor by storm — from meaningful user sessions to a Rockower banquet overlooking the Potomac River — plus a few surprises up our sleeves.
