    Aapt Summer
In summary, the conversation discussed the possibility of attending the AAPT 2018 summer meeting in Washington DC. The speaker recently renewed their membership after a 20-year hiatus and was considering going since they live near the District and work there. They suggested having a meet and greet among forum members, but it was revealed that not many people attend the meeting due to its expense. The speaker has been regularly attending and presenting at AAPT meetings since 2004, but this year they decided to take a break and focus on writing papers. They find the meetings to be a great place to get new ideas, share ideas, and connect with colleagues.

Anyone going?? I recently renewed my membership having let it go for ~20 years and since I live on the edge of the District and work in the District I was thinking of going.

Maybe have a meet and greet among the Forum members??

Meet and greet would have been cool.. but it seems no one else goes.
(Admittedly, it is expensive to go to. I'm thankful that I often have access to funds that help pay for my attendance.)

I've been going regularly and presenting (at least once a year) since 2004
(from this past decade https://www.aapt.org/Conferences/meetings.cfm , I only missed Atlanta (2017), New Orleans (2013), Philadelphia (2012), Omaha (2011)).
But this summer, I thought to give myself a break and work on writing up some papers...

I find AAPT meetings a good place to get "recharged"... by getting ideas and sharing ideas, as well as catching up with some colleagues.
If you can go, you should.
