Join LPA this July for our 2017 National Conference in Denver, celebrating 60 years of LPA! The LPA Conference will be held over the first week of July; June 30 - July 6, 2017. We have a great week of activities planned including an inspiring LPA Fashion Show, an amazing LPA Talent Show, a nail-biting Texas Hold 'Em Poker Night, a beautiful Diamond Jubilee Award's Banquet, fabulous educational workshops, snazzy receptions, informative MAB consultations, the new and improved 1824@LPA, and so much more! If you want off-sites, we are all stacked up with outdoor adventures and scenic rides through CO!  If you have a teen or tween, check out the exciting events planned just for them. The registration packets include much more information and will be mailed out soon to all paid members, so be sure your LPA membership is up to date. LPA registration and hotel reservations will open on April 5th this year, not April 1st as in years past, so mark your calendars now. You must register with LPA first in order to book your hotel room at the Denver Sheraton. Room rates for LPA registrants will be $159/night plus tax. We look forward to seeing you all this summer in Denver!
