The 2018 Eastern Division meeting will be held January 3–6 at the Savannah Convention Center in Savannah, GA.

Meeting Registration

Online registration is now open! You will be able to register online at the early bird rates until December 20 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Please note that online registration will be available only until December 20. After that date, online registration will no longer be available, but you will still be able to register at the registration desk at the meeting. The early bird registration rates are $50 less for all categories than for the on-site registration rates. To register at the member rates, you must be signed in.

Meeting Program

The meeting program is available on the APA website. Meeting registrants will also have access to the full program, including room locations, in our meeting app. Paper copies of the program will be available at the meeting.

Go green! You’ll save an additional $5 on meeting registration if you decline a paper copy of the program. Our free meeting app for smartphones and tablets contains the full program.

Those who go paperless will have the option to purchase a program for $5 at the registration desk.

Watch the APA Eastern Facebook and Twitter pages for periodic announcements about high-profile sessions.

Hotel Reservations

The APA has room blocks at two hotels in Savannah: the Westin Savannah Harbor and the Hyatt Regency Savannah. The Westin is connected to the convention center, and the Hyatt is located across the river in downtown, just a five-minute (free) ferry ride away.

Hotel reservations at the conference rates can be made through links on the APA website. The APA Group Rate of $169 per night (plus applicable taxes and fees) is available at both hotels through December 12, 2017 (subject to availability).

Whether you prefer the Westin or the Hyatt will depend on how you plan to spend your time at the meeting. Please take the time to read more about each hotel before making a reservation.

Please note: It is important that those attending the meeting stay in the conference hotels, rather than at other hotels, and specifically in the block of rooms reserved for APA meeting attendees. The financial viability of the meeting depends on our meeting our contractual obligations, the most important of which (by far) is that we fill a minimum number of sleeping rooms. Failure to do so results in a significant penalty, which, as a non-profit organization, the APA is ill-equipped to pay, and which would take resources away from other important APA initiatives.

For more information about the 2018 Eastern Division meeting, visit the meeting page. All meeting-related inquiries should be submitted via the meeting contact forms.

The program and executive committees extend a cordial invitation to all APA members to come and take part in the 2018 Eastern Division meeting.
