Greetings Appellate Practice Section Members,

Typically, being Chair of the Appellate Practice Section is awesome - especially when I get to draft my Chair's Message, bragging about all the good things happening in the Section. But, it's not so awesome when I must deliver bad news, especially when I am really disappointed by the news. This is, unfortunately, one of those times.

After much deliberation and considering the CDC's and Bar's guidelines, the APS Officers have decided to cancel the 2020-21 Long Range Planning Retreat that was scheduled for late May 2021 in St. Augustine. Although we had hoped things would be better by now, there are still too many uncertainties and waiting any longer to cancel would cost the Section significantly more in vendor-cancellation fees.
