    Dear FLAAPM Members,

    Due to Hurricane Irma, we have decided to cancel the Fall meeting.  There’s a possibility of rescheduling, but we will wait until after the hurricane for that to be determined.  We will be issuing full refunds as soon as possible.  The refunds will be made in the payment form that was used for the registration.  Dues payments will also be included in the refund.  If you need to pay your dues, you can do so through the national AAPM or at the next FLAAPM meeting.  If you paid online, you should receive an email from PayPal when your refund is issued.  Also, please remember it is your responsibility to cancel your hotel reservation.  Stay safe!

    Sincerely,
    FLAAPM Board
