2017 Fall Professional Development Conference

Registration is now open for the annual ETPA/TAPP Fall Professional Development Conference, scheduled for October 25 - October 27, 2016, at the Music Road Conference Center in Pigeon Forge. The ETPA Board is busy finalizing details on the speakers but you know from past experience it will be a great event! The conference will start on Wednesday, October 25th with a one-day NIGP class and continue all day Thursday, October 26th and half of the day on Friday, October 27th. Lunch will be included on Thursday and breakfast will be included both Thursday and Friday - all meals will be in the Harp room next door to our meeting room, the Dobro.
