The 2019 APIC Conference will take place on June 10-12, 2019 in Nashville, TN.

In order to register, you'll need to login to this website as a member. You may use this link to access registration:

IMPORTANT!! If you plan to attend the annual CMA Festival the weekend prior to APIC, we strongly encourage you to make your plans early. APIC does not have any hotel rooms on hold for the weekend nights (Friday/Saturday) prior to the Conference, and cannot help you with hotel reservations for those nights. You must make the arrangements on your own. NOTE: rooms available for check-in starting on Sunday 6/9 are limited and will be allocated on a first come - first served basis.

The APIC room block is now sold out for arrival on Sunday, 6/9. Should you wish to arrive in Nashville on 6/9, you will need to secure alternate hotel arrangements on your own, as we can now only accept reservation requests for arrival on Monday, 6/10. You will be given the option to be put on the waitlist for a hotel room on Sunday 6/9 during the registration process.
