Family-Friendly Events

This year’s conference features numerous ways you can involve your entire family in your time in Anaheim. We encourage you to bring “kids” of all ages to these fun activities!

Trivia Night

Friday, April 3 | 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | Granada

ASPA is excited to bring back our FREE Trivia Night! An uproarious hour of fun and games (literally!), trivia focuses on ASPA knowledge, the public administration profession and some great conference-based questions. Bring your competitive spirit, your most random PA knowledge and money for the bar. You won’t regret showing up for this event, and leaving with some new friends! (Yes, Disney trivia will show up… we’re in Anaheim, after all!)

Welcome Reception

Saturday, April 4 | 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. | Hyatt Regency Fountain Terrace
Our annual Welcome Reception is always a relaxed occasion to bring family members, chat with friends and colleagues, meet people and take a break after a long day of panels and plenaries. We’re looking forward to everything the Anaheim atmosphere has to offer – including food stations and warm spring air!

Sunday, April 5 and Monday, April 6 | 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 a.m. | Royal Ballroom
If you are regular in your practice and are starting to tense up, join us Sunday and Monday mornings to stretch out, pace your breathing and re-find your “flow”. Our yogi will provide a practice suitable for all skill sets (power practicers, this may feel a little slow to you), including kids, so bring your mat and get yourself started with this great way to limber up before you hit the panel rooms.

Kid-Friendly Movie Night

Sunday, April 5 | 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | Imperial
“Kids” of all ages are welcome to check out our film of choice: The Secret Life of Pets! Take a quick break from the networking receptions to have a laugh and grab some sugar with our younger set of meeting attendees! For those bringing children to the event, this will be a great opportunity for them to chill out on their own and meet others while you grab a glass of wine with your colleagues!

NCAA Watch Party

Monday, April 6 | 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.| Grand Ballroom E-G
For those who are worried they’ll miss the end of March Madness while in Anaheim: Have no fear! Our watch party will take care of that! We’ll be broadcasting the game on big screens, complete with beer, pretzels and all sorts of March Madness fun! Whether your bracket is busted or you still have a dog in the fight, good times will be had by all!
