Hafa Adai!

Welcome to the official website of the 26th Annual Association of Pacific Islands Public Auditors (APIPA) Conference- www.apipa2015.org. The Guam Office of Public Accountability is pleased and honored to host this milestone conference from August 3 to 7, 2015 at the Lotte Hotel Guam and the Westin Resort Guam. This year’s theme is “Achieving Partnerships In Public Accountability.”

Our host committee has been working closely with the Graduate School USA to put together an exciting program. Our conference offers four tracks- Audit, Audit Supervisory, Finance, and Grants Management and Leadership- in which our participants may choose the courses best suited for their continuing professional education needs. With over 20 courses to choose from and the after-conference activities we have lined up, I have no doubt that each participant will find great value in their time in Guam, and will return home energized and ready to support their respective institutions and agencies.

We express our heartfelt appreciation to the United States Department of the Interior, Office of Insular Affairs’ Pacific Islands Training Initiative (PITI) for their ongoing support of APIPA and our annual conferences. In addition, the Graduate School USA’s Stephen Latimer and Jason Aubuchon, contracted under the PITI program, have done a tremendous job in securring outstanding instructors. We also thank the Department of the Interior, Office of Inspector General, and IG Mary Kendall, for their continued support of the APIPA principals and offices.

Please feel free to explore this site. We offer detailed information on registration, training courses, quality instructors, travel and hotels, and things to do on Guam. We hope that you will join us in making this year’s conference a success!
