2018 Eastern Division Meeting Program Participant Cancellations

We are trying to measure the impact of the winter storm on the APA's 2018 Eastern Division Meeting in Savannah, GA. To assist us in getting an accurate accounting of weather-related cancellations, if you were scheduled to appear on the 2018 Eastern Division program, please complete and submit this very brief survey.

Thank you for your assistance!

2018 Eastern Division Meeting Registration Refunds

The APA normally has a strict no-refund policy for meeting registration. However, because the extreme weather situation in Savannah, GA, during our 2018 Eastern Division Meeting is covered under the APA's event cancellation insurance, we are able to make an exception for this meeting and offer refunds in cases of weather-related cancellations only.

Those who attended any meeting events in person, including substitute events at the Hyatt, are not eligible for registration refunds. Similarly, those who registered for the meeting but cancelled for reasons unrelated to the weather are not eligible for registration refunds.

Despite the weather situation, the APA still incurred many of the usual meeting-related costs, and our event cancellation insurance may not cover all such expenses or lost revenues; further, processing refunds will require significant APA staff time and resources. For this reason, we encourage those in a position to cover their registration fees to do so and opt not to request a refund. That said, we are pleased to provide refunds to all those who request them and are deemed eligible.

To request a refund of your 2018 Eastern Division registration fee, please complete and submit the online form. Please note that the order number and registration fee amount are not required fields, but completing them will speed processing of your refund.
