    Nope

    Only free to people that paid the $800 conference fee in the first place.

    For the rest of us poor saps it is $68 per 2.5 credits or $870 for all 32 CM credits.

    I'm listening to Dr. Rudolph Goodfingers from the Vienna Institute right now! LOL

    Are any of them actually worth listening to?
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    I went to some good session, so yes. I also missed some sessions I wanted to go to.

    I wish the recordings were free to all APA members. But this makes an expensive conference a little better of a value. I have always found it hard to choose from several concurrent conference sessions, and this makes it possible to attend one and still experience the others.

    I'm a really harsh critic of APA but wow! I think this is a great idea as it cuts down on CE costs for those that have to pay out of pocket travel expenses. It's also an opportunity to see an interesting session you may have missed. Finally a step in the right direction for APA.

    This is a real step forward for APA. I can never get to everything I want to at the conference, and if I try, I end up missing out on catching up with people, visiting planning sites in the host city, etc. This way I can do the boring parts later and have fun at the conference.

    A warning to those whose sessions are recorded- the mike goes live a good 10 minutes before the presentations start. So behave yourself up there. Don't be Reagan:
