Texas APME’s 2020 convention in San Angelo postponed

Dear Texas APME members:

I’m sorry to report that we’re postponing the 2020 convention set for March 27-29 in San Angelo due to concerns over the coronavirus. Because of the rapid spread of the virus, many newspapers have already limited non-essential travel and we expect more will follow suit.

We plan to reschedule the convention because we believe it is important that we honor the great work of our member newspapers and raise money for internships and scholarships. We’re in contact with our convention venues and vendors to try to find a suitable future date. We expect that will take some time, so bear with us. We’ll keep you informed with regular updates on our website, Facebook page and through email.

If you made a reservation at the Red Lion Hotel, we are canceling them as a block. You should get cancellation confirmation from the hotel. If you haven’t received one within a few days, you should check with the hotel directly. If you’ve already registered, it will still be good for the rescheduled convention. If you can’t attend on the rescheduled dates, we will refund it.

Thanks for your understanding. We’re still going to have a great time in San Angelo — at a date to be determined!

Mede Nix
Texas APME President
