EPR Symposium 2012

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite your participation in this year’s Rocky Mountain EPR Symposium, July 15-19, 2012.  In addition to several vibrant and exciting sessions, we will be located at the Copper Conference Center in Copper Mountain, Colorado. This location will provide a gorgeous setting in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Copper Mountain features shops, restaurants, on-site activities and nearby activities to enhance your experience. The area is very family friendly offering options for individuals of all ages and genders. Access is about a 90 minute ride (via rental car or ground shuttle services) from any of the Denver, Colorado Springs or Eagle County airports. Accommodations feature condo-style housing for individuals, families and large groups, all within walking distance of the conference center. Copper Mountain also provides complimentary shuttle service within all locations on the property. For most days, the program will be structured to allow an opportunity for you to explore the wonders of the Summit County area.

Please join us, we look forward to seeing you this summer.
