The Adapted Physical Activity Seminar is organized every fourth year in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Culture, FSSS, and key APA organizations. The seminar was arranged for the first time in 1986. The APA seminar has acted as a collective educational event for professionals, researchers, and students. Topics usually concern current topics in the field of APA both in Finland and internationally. One of the goals during the two-day seminar has been setting nationwide recommendations for developing APA for the next four years.

The most recent seminar was in August 2018 in Helsinki.
