56th Annual SPEP Conference

We are very happy to announce some of the details for the 56th annual SPEP conference to be hosted by University of Memphis in Memphis, TN October 19-21, 2017.

For information on the hotel, please visit the SPEP registration page at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel or call (901) 527-7300 and mention the SPEP conference to get the reduced group rate of $151.00 USD (for up to quadruple occupancy). Reservations at the Sheraton should be made no later than September 25, 2017.

SPEP has also arranged for overflow hotel accomodations with the Memphis Courtyard Marriott (www.marriott.com/memcd) for the same rate of $151.00 USD (for up to quadruple occupancy). You can click on the link and enter the SPEP group code of either SPESPEA (for a king room) or SPESPEB (for 2 queens), or you can call either (800) 228-9290 or (901) 522-2200 and mention the SPEP conference. Reservations at the Marriott should be made no later than September 20, 2017.

Please note that this is a busy time of year and downtown Memphis hotels are likely to sell out, so it would be wise to make your reservations early.

To register for the conference and pay your 2017-18 annual membership dues, please go to the SPEP page on the PDC website after June 1, 2017.

The 2017 SPEP Program is available here.

A special thanks to Dr. Leigh Johnson for pulling together a very helpful SPEP Guide to Memphis.
