FAQs

What's up with the 2020 convention?

The 2020 AACP Convention will be a virtual convention.  It will be exactly like our 'normal' convention, except different....and without the hugs.  Be sure to keep your eye on this website for information, as the details develop.

why is there all this info about cohutta springs and other information about a 2020 convention that isn't happening?

Cohutta Springs was to be the host site for 2020, until the convention was modified.  We're updating our website with current information, and we haven't figured out where to stash the old information so we don't lose it. 

Can you use the words "letter carrier" in a sentence?

Sure can...My dad said that after seeing how much luggage my sister was bringing to summer camp, he was going to letter carrier own bags!
