Registration Open for the 2020 APTi Conference set for Chicago

             Early Bird Registration Extended to Feb. 21

We are very pleased to announce we are planning a 2020 conference just outside of Chicago. The dates are July 23-26, 2020.

We have kept the prices the same as for the 2017 conference -- our Early Bird rate is only $550 for members. Click here to register.

As a destination, Chicago is easy to get to no matter where you are coming from. Most of you can find direct flights at a reasonable cost.

The hotel is in the suburb of Rosemont, which is about a 10-minute ride from O’Hare Airport. Here’s the link to the Hyatt Rosemont.

We are planning this conference with a budget in mind – both ours and yours. The hotel has a 24-hour free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Not only that, we negotiated a rate of $119 per night. (For reference, the hotel rate in Salt Lake City was $165 per night.) We got a parking rate of $10 per night for those who drive or rent a car. This is a great deal! These prices are really fantastic for the Chicago area in the summer.

And here's the link to make your room reservation.

The dates we selected are Thursday to Sunday. Our thought is that most attendees would arrive on Wednesday, with the program starting Thursday morning and running until noon on Sunday.

If you are interested in serving on a committee or volunteering in any way, please let us know. You can email Eileen Brown to let her know of your interest.  We will send out a more formal request for help soon. We will also send out a request for proposals in the next month or so.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal to present, please click here.

Mark your calendar! As always, we appreciate your thoughts or suggestions. Stay tuned and plan to attend APTi’s 2020 Conference!


Association for Psychological Type International

The Association for Psychological Type International (APTi), founded in 1979, is an international membership organization open to any individual interested in personality type. APTi Members come from a variety of backgrounds and professions including business and industry, organizational development, religion, education, psychotherapy, and counseling. Members seek to extend the development, research, applications and ethical use of type theory. APTi is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

APTi is undergoing a few changes. We are transforming our organization from a professional association model to a grassroots community model. We will no longer have office staff so we ask that you give us a little time after sending in a communication. We promise we will get back to you in a timely manner with the information you are seeking. Contact us at [email protected].

Our new mailing address is:
PO Box 4538
Itasca, IL 60143
