As you may be aware, a highly unusual winter storm is expected for tomorrow, Wednesday, January 3, 2018, in the Savannah, GA area. The APA is monitoring the weather forecast and working with our local contacts to respond appropriately.

The APA Eastern Division Meeting will be held as scheduled. Registration will open at 10 a.m. tomorrow and sessions will begin at 11 a.m.


Due to the inclement weather, the Savannah Belles Ferry between the Savannah Convention Center and the Hyatt hotel WILL NOT OPERATE on Wednesday, January 3.

Free ground transportation will be offered in place of the ferry. Shuttles will operate between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. The shuttles will pick up and drop off in front of the Hyatt outside the lobby and run continuously throughout the day to and from the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center. Look for the green and orange Old Town Trolley shuttles.

Should the ferry closure be extended, shuttles may also be provided on Thursday, January 4. We will send further communications about this if necessary.


All sessions will be held as scheduled. It is not possible to reschedule sessions at this late date due to participants’ travel changes.

If your travel to Savannah is impacted in a way that may prevent you from attending your session(s), please be in touch with your session chair and fellow participants.

We will continue to monitor the weather situation and will provide meeting updates via email, the APA website, and social media. We wish you safe and smooth travels and hope to see you in Savannah very soon.

All the best,

Jeffrey Dunn, Eastern Division Secretary-Treasurer
Amy Ferrer, Executive Director
Melissa Smallbrook, Meeting Coordinator
