PA Convention 2007, Halifax, Nova Scotia
The 50th Annual Convention of the Parapsychological Association will be held from Aug 2 - 5, 2007 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The venue will be the Holiday Inn Select Halifax Centre, which was the location for the 1998 PA Convention held in Halifax. Attendees should plan to arrive on Thursday, Aug 2 during the morning or day-- registration and a social event will occur Thursday evening.

The formal program will begin on Friday morning and end no later than 11:00 AM on Sunday. The Annual Meeting of the Parapsychological Association will follow immediately after the end of Convention programming at 11:00 AM but is open only to Full and Associate Members of the Parapsychological Association, Inc.; it will end by noon.

Many of you will remember the previous meeting held there in 1998. Halifax offers great August weather, excellent facilities, and easy international airport access. Halifax and other locales in Nova Scotia offer very attractive vacationing options, and those attending the Convention may wish to take advantage of them beforehand, afterward, or both.

Here is a good link (Kayak.com) to start your search for a flight to Halifax. You can create an "alert" to send you an email when the price from your home airport to Halifax drops below a threshold you set.

John Palmer will serve as Program Chair. Further details will be posted here as they become available. Miguel Roig will be serving as Arrangements Chair.


PASSPORTS (UPDATED 13 July 2007)
US Citizens: Remember that a valid US passport will be necessary to enter Canada and to re-enter the US!
(Check your passport to make sure it is not expired). Here is a link to check how long to renew your passport. Currently, the delay is at least 10 weeks!

Basically, it says that US citizens will be let back into the US from Canada without a passport, if you can show you have applied for one and have another GOVERNMENT-ISSUED photo ID. You need to check with your airline to see if you will be allowed into Canada. Air Canada has the same rule as the above US government announcement:

NOVA SCOTIA
Nova Scotia has many exciting vacation opportunities, including at some hours drive, in the north, the spectacularly scenic Cabot Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where there are 27 hiking trails of various lengths and where one may see moose and eagles. The official tourism website of Nova Scotia has a wide variety of useful information including maps, and where one can elect as languages English (default), French, and German. Nova Scotia is a place with many exciting attractions beyond our Convention.
