Kebret Kebede and his annual conference planning committee have created an exciting program, and there will be some new events this year.

The Sunday night event will be BeatleShow! at Planet Hollywood at 5:30 pm, with a group dinner at Spice Market Buffet following the show. Make your reservations directly through the following link: http://vegasshows.rezgo.com/details/41941/BeatleShow-at-Saxe-Theater

Poker Walk-Run benefiting the HAPS Foundation, Monday morning, 7:00 AM - 8:45 AM. Run individually or sign up as a team. There will be prizes for the winning poker hands. The walk-run leaves from the hotel. Proceeds benefit the HAPS Foundation and the scholarships it supports.

Monday night we will have a HAPS Social for everyone registered for the conference. This event replaces the banquet, which in recent years has been a money-losing proposition. The Social goes from 6-9 pm to allow attendees time to go out and explore all that Vegas has to offer.


Thursday, 30 May: Optional Day Trips - Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon tours available for individual booking through Grand Canyon Tours http://www.grandcanyontourandtravel.com/haps/index.html

Take a look at our 2013 conference logo featuring Skully "rolling the bones." In addition to t-shirts we will have available collared polo shirts with embroidered logos. Order when you register.

Come join us in Las Vegas for a fun
and educational conference!
