Please consider joining us at the 21st Annual International Conference of the Association on Employment Practices and Principles (AEPP) in Atlanta, Georgia, Oct. 9-11, 2013. This year's conference theme is "Frontiers in Employment Practices and Principles: Emerging Trends, Issues, and Challenges." The AEPP and its parent, the Council on Employee Responsibilities and Rights (CERR) focus on organizational concepts and practices for the effective managing of organizations, people and performance within the context of the higher levels of
ethical principles and practices.
We also sponsor the International Journal for Responsible Employment Practices and Principles (IJREPP), our official journal, that continues in the tradition of our 23 year history of accomplishments and success in developing and editing the premiere journal in this field.
Special emphasis this year will include encouraging "practitioner" engagement in varied track areas in addition to our traditional scholar emphasis.
AEPP international conferences focus on providing a national and international forum for professional development, networking and social interaction among academics, consultants, executives and practicing managers. Our conferences are deliberately limited in number of participants to foster a supportive and friendly environment.
We are very fortunate this year to be sponsored by the Troy University’s Sorrell College of Business. Also, Southern Oregon University will be lending their support, as well as the Institute for Leadership and Global Education (ILGE).
Our venue this year is ideal and the location at the Embassy Suites Atlanta – at Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta will provide a most memorable experience for all. This vibrant city in the Southeast has many points of interest and excellent transportation drawing visitors from across the world. This is a wonderful opportunity to engage in the discussion of significant, domestic and international employment issues and practices as well as to explore Centennial Olympic Park and the Georgia Aquarium - the largest aquarium in the world. The aquarium is located adjacent to the hotel. Visit the King Center to learn more about Martin Luther King and his role in America’s battle for civil rights.
