The APT series runs Saturday and Sunday, March 14-15, 10 am-4 pm. Fee for the entire series (4 2-hour lectures and 2 walking tours) is $120. Individual lectures are $35. APT members receive a 25% discount ($90 all 4 lectures and 2 tours or $25/lecture). Anyone paying for at least one lecture is welcome to attend a tour. The fee for walking tour only is $25.
ANYONE INTERESTED IS WELCOME TO BECOME AN APT MEMBER (good until Dec. 31, 2020). Pay membership fees ($50 individual, $110 corporate).
