AAPA cancels spring conference due to coronavirus pandemic

Due to an abundance of caution and in the best interests for the safety, health and well-being of its many members and supporters in light of the coronavirus pandemic, the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) today announced the cancellation of its March 17-19 2020 Spring Conference event in Washington, D.C. The AAPA groups together ports from Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States. 
“It’s disappointing to cancel this annual port industry conference, particularly since AAPA had planned an excellent agenda with high-ranking government officials, public policy influencers, and business and port authority leaders from throughout the Western Hemisphere who were lined up to make presentations and lead discussions on public port challenges, successes and lessons learned that are making national and international news,” said AAPA Public Affairs Director Aaron Ellis. “These concerns, however, pale in comparison to the importance of keeping people healthy and assisting authorities in their efforts to contain the virus and get the necessary care and attention to those who need it.”
