Poster Session

The APA Quad State Conference Poster Session is now open for submissions! It’s a great opportunity for showcasing ideas, projects, research, and more!

Unlike typical conference sessions, poster sessions are an informal platform for continued discussions, displays and networking within the context of the refined work students, organizations, professionals, educators, and businesses have been producing in the region.

The conference committee will form a group of jurors to review submissions and curate a selection of posters to create a diverse display of work relating to this year’s theme: gather + engage + connect.
