2018 TPAPT Conference – Agenda Updates
Here is an updated version of the 2018 Conference Guide. It is a work in progress but the session titles and presenters are largely complete. Things may be shuffled to accommodate presenter needs etc. The agenda is also included below.
I’ve included some details on accommodations as well as a map of the venue location. Registration options are as follows:
Regular Registration – July 26th & 27th
One Day Registration – July 27th Sessions
Also, we’ve set up an economical housing option at the Boston University Dorms. Costs are $90/person/night for a bedroom with a common area. A number of folks stayed there last year (including me) and found the rooms serviceable but spartan. Having said that, BU will let you extend the stay beyond the conference in case you are looking to see Boston on a budget. Reserve a Room
Remember, the dorms are not “on site” this year so leave yourself time to commute if you stay there!
Uber is a reliable and effective way to get around the Western Suburbs of Boston. If you drive, there will be free parking at the venue both days.
We’re still seeking panelists for our working lunch session ( The ACT 1 Year Later ). If this interests you, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

For the frugal: Boston University Dorm Rooms, $90 per night/ person. BU has graciously agreed to let folks use their rooms for the full weekend after the conference. These are essentially dorm rooms with access to a common area. This location is idea if you are looking to spend the weekend but don’t want to pay hotel room rates.
Having said that, the commute to Lexington could be about 30 minutes in traffic.
Hotels in close proximity. $150/night and up
