  • APCO International Conference - Chapter Night Out

    Dear APCO Atlantic Chapter Members,

    As many of you who have attended the APCO International conference each year may remember, the Atlantic Chapter has hosted a “Chapter Night Out’ each year. This is an event typically held on the Monday evening of each international conference, and allows the chapter members to share a meal, and network with each other as well as meet new people from our chapter that they may have not been able to meet before. Chapter Night Out has always been a wonderful event that brought our chapter members together in new and unique places each year, allowing us to experience the local culture and cuisine. As you can imagine hosting an evening out for upwards of 100 people has become extremely expensive, and each years projected cost does vary by city, but the costs never seem to go down, or become more reasonable.

    After much thought, and discussion by the Atlantic Chapter of APCO Board of Officers, we have made the decision to not host a formal Chapter Night Out at the APCO International 2020 conference. This decision was not taken lightly, but in the current climate with COVID19 and reduced travel for many people, the decision has been made.

    As we get closer to the APCO International 2020 conference, we will work to offer an informal location where chapter members who wish to get together may meet up. It may be a local dining establishment, or even hotel lobby, but will be informal and people will at least know where other chapter members may be for the early part of the evening after the Chapter Business Meeting.

    The Atlantic Chapter of APCO Business Meeting will be held at the Orange County Convention Center, room W307AB on August 3, 2020 from 1700-1800. We hope to see everyone there.

    Not an easy decision to be made, but I firmly believe it is one in the best interest of the chapter.

    Thank you for all you do for the Chapter!
