Annual Meeting Announcement



Hello Everyone,

This year’s meeting of the Alabama section of AAPT will be part of the Alabama Science Teachers Association (ASTA) Conference, Mission iSTEM. The greater conference will be held in Huntsville at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center (USSRC) from Thursday, February 14th through Saturday, February 16th. I hope everyone will attend the full conference. However, our AAPT affiliated sessions will take place on Saturday. And just as we are able to attend all conference sessions and tours, the AAPT sessions will be open to all conference participants. We also plan to invite the state sections from Georgia, Tennessee and Mississippi.

If you are interested in presenting at this year’s meeting, please visit the ASTA website, online proposal link at

If you would like to limit your presentation to our meeting on Saturday, please check the box for Saturday and then identify your session as being “AAPT Affiliated” under the “special needs” section at the bottom of the form. I will coordinate the room and time assignments for the AAPT affiliated sessions. This will allow some flexibility for some of our shorter presentations. If you are planning to attend on Friday and would like to present on Friday, please also check the box for Friday and let me know in the “special needs” section that you will also present on Friday.

The proposal deadline is currently October 1st. Although this deadline is likely to be extended, please try to enter your proposal as soon as possible to help with planning.

Tommi and I will send updates over the next few weeks as we learn more details about the conference.
