Thank you, everyone, for bearing with us during this weather emergency. Despite the storm, many sessions went on today at the Convention Center, and several new sessions were organized at the Hyatt.


The local transit authority has announced that the Savannah Belles Ferry between downtown Savannah and the Convention Center will not operate tomorrow, Thursday, January 4.

Currently, the bridges between the Convention Center and downtown Savannah remain closed. We have shuttles standing by to run between the Hyatt and the Convention Center if one or more of the bridges opens. We will be in touch with further details as soon as we hear from local officials about bridge reopenings.

For those trying to get from the Savannah Airport to the Convention Center and/or Westin, there is currently an open bridge across the Savannah River north of the city on I-95; this is a significantly longer route, but it is a viable option to get to the meeting from the airport.

Session Changes

For information on session changes, we have set up an open thread on the APA Blog to facilitate communication between participants. If you are a scheduled speaker or session chair, we invite you to use this space to indicate whether or not you will be able to attend and/or whether your session will go ahead.

If you have information about changes to your session and have not yet posted on the blog thread, please do so. You may also contact Eastern Division Secretary-Treasurer Jeff Dunn at with information about session changes.

If your session today was cancelled and you would like to reschedule, please contact Jeff Dunn at There are limited session slots available for Thursday. We understand that some sessions may not be able to be rescheduled until we know more about the transportation situation tomorrow, of course.

We will update the APA meeting app with a revised schedule tomorrow morning.
