ERAPPA 2015: Lighting Our Future

Our ERAPPA 2015 Host Committee has worked diligently to develop a conference program to showcase some of the best professional development and networking experiences with our hope you will gain valuable knowledge/skills as well as meet many interesting individuals who can become valuable friends and professional resources.

The topics covered in the Keynote and Plenary sessions will provide enlightening insight to all attendees and guests. Significant time scheduled in the Hall of Resources will not only showcase the products/services our Business Partners provide to our respective institutions, but further demonstrate the true partnership ERAPPA shares with them. Networking events have been thoughtfully designed to engage us “after class” in unique, fun environments furthering our relationship building. And, we’ve developed an interesting program for spouses and guests to enjoy, providing them with daily options to explore some of the local wonders of the area!

Providence offers us perfect amenities for ERAPPA 2015 – a first-class conference hotel and adjoining convention center facility in the heart of the city for our conference experience, while close to historical sites, prominent academic institutions, renowned culinary experiences, shopping, and more to further explore. We look forward to sharing all this with you in October!
