Chair's October Message

Dear Appellate Practice Section Members,

As the Florida Bar heads into its Fall Schedule, I've got several updates of interest to our members:

APS Fall Meeting Cancelled: Dorian came and went, sparing our state the brunt of its gray clouds. Unfortunately, the too-close-to-call storm caused the cancelation of the DCA Judicial Education Conference, and with it, our APS Fall Meeting. Your Executive Committee investigated several options for a replacement meeting on or around the Florida Bar Mid-year meeting, but the timing of the DCA Conference cancellation proved too close to that meeting to allow us to obtain meeting space, and other options had logistical challenges that outweighed the usefulness of an interim meeting prior to the Florida Bar Winter Meeting. So — please make plans to come to that meeting, since it will need to serve as our only official gathering prior to the Annual Meeting in June of 2020! Thanks to all for the patience, especially those who had put in work on the reception or educational components of the DCA Judicial Conference that Dorian blew away.
