APIS 25th Annual Conference

APIS 25th Annual Conference

We regret to inform you that due to the public health crisis regarding COVID19 we are cancelling the APIS 25th Annual Conference that was scheduled for April 3 in Austin. This decision was not made lightly, but the health and safety of our speakers, registrants, members, State Bar staff and the general public is at the forefront of our actions in this rapidly changing situation.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: This event is tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, August 15, 2020. Please mark your calendar now and keep an eye on your inbox for additional information.  We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. We will update our website and communicate with section members and registrants as soon as more information is available.

REFUNDS:  Full refunds for April’s cancellation will be issued to all paid registrants.  Please be patient regarding your refund. The State Bar of Texas has cancelled all in-person meetings and continuing legal education courses for the month and may experience a slight back-log.  We anticipate you will see your refund (to the credit card you used to purchase your registration) within 5-7 days. If you paid by check or purchase order, it may take up to two weeks to receive your refund via mail. If you have not received your refund within the time frames outlined, please email Rhonda.Bridges@TexasBar.com in the State Bar accounting department. 

SPONSORS:  Sponsorships that have already been paid are being applied to the August course with the same registration passes and advertising opportunities.  We truly appreciate your support before and after the COVID-19 outbreak. Please email Paul and Jim if you have any questions regarding sponsorships.

CANCEL YOUR TRAVEL AND HOTEL IMMEDIATELY: In the meantime, you should cancel your hotel and travel reservations immediately. If you reserved your hotel room by phone, you must cancel by calling this number: (512) 482-8000.  If you reserved your room online, you can cancel by using the link below and then clicking the ‘Existing Reservations’ button on the top right-hand side of the page to enter your confirmation number and name: https://book.passkey.com/gt/217775862?gtid=21154136734a0c8073aea9f6f1174505

We will be in touch as we get updates on the specific details regarding rescheduling of this course. We are truly committed to serving our section membership. If you have any questions or concerns (aside from refund concerns), please email Sections@TexasBar.com and we will do our best to follow-up with you as soon as possible.

Best Regards,
