Have you registered for the 2019 Pacific Division meeting, April 17–20 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada? If not, take a moment to register online now!

In addition to colloquium and symposium sessions, this year’s meeting features a robust program complete with sessions sponsored by APA committees and affiliated groups. Highlights include the following sessions:
  • De Gruyter Kant Lecture: Barbara Herman (University of California, Los Angeles), “Making Others’ Ends Our Own: Challenges of Kantian Beneficence,” Wednesday, April 17, 4:00–6:00 p.m.
  • Berger Memorial Prize in Philosophy and Law: Deborah Hellman (University of Virginia), “A Theory of Bribery,” Wednesday, April 17, 4:00–7:00 p.m.
  • APA Department Chair’s Network: Joan McGregor (Arizona State University) and Janet Stemwedel (San José State University) will lead a discussion on “Innovation in the Philosophy Major,” Friday, April 19, 9:00 a.m.–Noon
  • John Dewey Lecture: Michael Friedman (Stanford University), “Philosophy, Science, and History: A Personal Perspective,” Friday, April 19, 4:00–6:00 p.m. (a reception will follow)
  • Presidential Address: Richard Arneson (University of California, San Diego), “Individual Well-Being and Social Justice,” Friday, April 19, 6:00–7:00 p.m. (a reception will follow)
Early bird registration rates ($125 for APA members, $240 for non-members, and $40 for student members) are available until online registration closes on April 3. Pacific meeting registration will not be available April 4 through April 16. If you don’t register online by April 3, you can still register on-site at the meeting—but note that on-site registration rates are $50 higher than early bird registration for all categories.

Please note: You’ll save an additional $5 on meeting registration if you opt not to receive a paper copy of the program. The meeting program is available online, and our free meeting app for smartphones and tablets also contains the full program. Session locations will be added to the app on the first day of the meeting.

Haven’t yet renewed your membership? Renew now! In order to receive the discounted meeting rate available to APA members, your membership must be current. (Lapsed members who have not renewed their memberships for the 2018–2019 year pay the non-member rate of $240 in advance or $290 at the meeting.)

We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver.

All the best,

Amy E. Ferrer
Executive Director

P.S. The deadline for hotel reservations at the APA group rate is available until March 19, subject to availability. Make your hotel reservations at the Westin Bayshore Vancouver.
