2015 Convention Updates and More

About the Map in the App and Information for Registration

2015 Convention Mobile App Updates

Delegates and Alternate Delegates, are you making plans for your trip to Washington DC for the 2015 Convention?  Are you looking for handheld access to information about registration (and the travel policy) or the optional tours?  Recent updates to the FREE 2015 Convention mobile app can help with that! Optional tour destinations are now featured in the Maps section of the app.  Registration information and links are available in the Meeting section.  If you haven’t done so already, download the mobile app now (available for iPhone, Droid, and Blackberry devices).

What if a Delegate Can't Attend The Convention?  Call-in the Back-up.

Of course, we all hope the named Delegate from each of USP's 458 Member Organizations will attend the 2015 Convention April 22 - 25, 2015.  But, what if s/he can't? Member Organizations can name Alternate Delegates. An Alternate Delegate must be formally named in advance of a Regular Membership Meeting in order to perform Delegate responsibilities at the meeting. Alternates are like substitute teachers, they perform the duties for the days when the named Delegates are unavailable, but it isn't permanent. By naming an Alternate Delegate, a Member Organization is naming the substitute for the meeting and only the meeting.

Are You Going to the AAPS 2014 Meeting?

If you are planning on being at the 2014 AAPS Meeting or are just in the San Diego, CA area on November 5th, please consider attending the USP Luncheon. Representatives from USP Member and Observer Organizations and USP Volunteers are invited to the lunch.  If you are interested in participating, please register by October 30th.  We do hope you can attend.
