AP Annual Conference 2007
In 2007, the AP Annual Conference in Las Vegas was the largest ever with 4,000 members from the AP and K-16 communities attending four days of workshops, panel discussions, presentations, and exhibits. We will continue to build on this banner event at the AP Annual Conference 2008 in Seattle as we recognize the significant expansion in minority and low income students who participate in the Advanced Placement Program nationwide. We are working to create a new generation of AP teachers supported by increased federal, state and private funding including the National Math and Science Initiative.
