AEPP international conferences focus on providing a national and international forum for professional development, networking and social interaction among academics, consultants, executives and practicing managers. Our conferences are deliberately limited in number of participants to foster a supportive and friendly environment. Special emphasis this year will include encouraging "practitioner" engagement in varied track areas in addition to our traditional scholar emphasis. 

2014 marks the 22nd Annual International Conference of AEPP.  This year's theme: Transformation and Change for the Future: Employment Practices and Principles in Transition.  Theme-related topics include employee engagement, social media, immigration reform, health care, managing demographics, managing work-life balance, global organizations, multi-cultural issues, boundary-less careers, new regulations on employment, layoffs, unemployment, delocalization of firms, executive compensation, rights to privacy, and other areas.

The official conference hotel is The Inn at Opryland.  The conference rate is $169 per night, plus taxes.  Mention the AEPP Conference when making reservations and do so before September 5, 2014 to obtain the discounted rate.  

More information about the conference is available online at
