The 2016 annual conference of CPP, our 29th annual conference, will take place at St. Bonaventure University, the third time in fifteen years that Bonaventure will have hosted the conference.
The dates of the conference are Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 13-16, 2016. We hope that we can build on the success of the 2015 conference. Details of the conference will be forthcoming as plans proceed. Please mark your calendars to keep these dates open.
St. Bonaventure University is located just outside of Olean, NY, about seventy miles due south of Buffalo, NY, close to the Pennsylvania border. It is not located near any major airports. The closest airport is Buffalo, NY. Rochester is 100 miles away. It is also possible to fly into Bradford, PA, which is only 25 miles away, but flights to Bradford may require a couple of connections. Erie, PA is 90 miles away. Buffalo tends to be the most convenient airport, and we will arrange shuttle trips to and from that airport though some of us may want to rent cars and share rides with others.
Three hotels are located within walking distance of the campus (1/4 mile to one mile away). The closest is the Fairfield Inn and Suites. Also close by is Microtel Inn and Suites, and slightly farther away is the Best Western Plus University Inn. We will make arrangements with each of these hotels for special (lower, not higher) conference prices.
The theme for next year’s conference has yet been determined, so please feel free to share ideas for themes that you have.
