EPR Symposium

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite your participation in this year’s Rocky Mountain EPR Symposium, July 26-31, 2015.  In addition to several vibrant and exciting sessions, we will be located at the Snowbird Resort & Conference Center in Snowbird, Utah. This location will provide a gorgeous setting in the beautiful Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains.

Snowbird 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 30 minute ride (via rental car, taxi or ground shuttle services) from Salt Lake International Airport (SLC). Accommodations feature traditional hotel-style rooms and condo-style units for individuals, families and large groups, all within walking distance of the conference center. For most days, the program will be structured to allow an opportunity for you to explore the wonders of the Little Cottonwood Canyon area.

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