AAPRCO 2018 Convention


Sep 21

Circumstances beyond our control have forced us to revise our plans for AAPRCO’s forty-first annual convention, which we had planned for Duluth, Minnesota.  Amtrak informed AAPRCO that our requested charter special train, “The Lake Superior Limited”, from New Orleans LA to Duluth MN and return to Chicago IL, has been disapproved.

After exploring our potential options, we have decided to hold the convention at Saint Paul, the capital of Minnesota, on September 19-22, 2018.  We are working to park participating private cars at Saint Paul Union Depot; the alternative is Amtrak’s Midway facility, which is the site of the former Amtrak passenger station.  Participating cars will arrive and depart on Amtrak’s Empire Builder.  We have selected the Hyatt Place Saint Paul/Downtown as our convention hotel and currently planning other convention activities.

We will provide an update when more information is available.
