Tips for Employer Approval to Attend

Tips for Employer Approval to Attend

The AAPA understands that budgets can be tight, staffing can be short and time can be limited. Since the AAPA is the first choice for pathologists' assistant-specific education, the AAPA wants all members to attend.

Here are tips to help get employer approval to attend an AAPA Event:
  • Be armed with knowledge! Demonstrate the valuable information presented at the conference and how it will help you stay current in the field of pathology. Provide your employer with a schedule of the lectures (and workshops if applicable) that you plan to attend, and offer to present what you’ve learned to your coworkers upon your return.
  • Come back with information! Plan to visit the exhibit hall booths/sponsors (and the product demonstrations if applicable) to get information on products or services that your lab needs.
  • Provide information! Submit an estimate of travel expenses, including how you plan to keep these costs down (discounted shuttle vs cab, breakfast included in registration rate, etc.).
  • Be helpful! Offer suggestions for providing coverage while you are at the conference.
  • Use the AAPA! Apply for a travel grant. The AAPA has travel grants available to help cover the cost. Stay up-to-date with the latest opportunities and submission deadlines by updating your contact info and/or following us on social media.
  • Shop for deals! Get the best discounted rates available for our events by registering early and booking your room early at the host hotel property.
Each year, the AAPA's Continuing Education Events provide members with the perfect venue to obtain the PACE credits necessary to maintain ASCP BOC certification. Fall Conference and Spring Meeting are the best outlets for pathologists' assistants to address the need for continuing education. We have put together a customizable sample letter for you to download outlining the value of AAPA Events to both you and your company. You can customize the letter to your unique situation, focusing on the issues and opportunities that are most important to you.
