APT US&C is responsible for yet another successful annual conference, which was held August 8-10, 2004 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Speakers included many of our private sector affiliates, as well as APT US&C members who passed on useful information to all in attendance.

Participants were marveled with a taste of the hotel's VIP lounge during the Opening Reception sponsored by Bank One. John Ganfield, Senior Vice President, Bank One, was there to welcome everyone and mingled with the crowd as they were treated to heavy hors d'oeuvres and the wonderful company of their colleagues.

An awards ceremony was held on Tuesday, August 10th to honor individuals with excellence in the areas of Investment Policy and Debt Policy and for those individuals who were successful in completing the requirements necessary to gain or maintain their CPFA credential.
