    Here’s the official statement from APSA:

    Current Status: MEETING IS CANCELED
    UPDATE (August 28, 2012, 5:49pm Eastern): President G. Bingham Powell announces the cancellation of the 2012 APSA Annual Meeting.

    A primary function of the association is to provide the highest quality meeting experience possible. In light of revised information we have from local officials about the trajectory of Isaac, we now anticipate the potential for sustained rain, flooding, power outages and severely restricted transportation into the city on Thursday. Under these circumstances, it is not prudent to convene the meeting.

    For attendees who are currently in New Orleans, please monitor weather bulletins and stay in touch with your hotel staff, who will provide the most accurate and timely information.

    For all attendees, we will provide additional refund information as soon as we are able. Please bear with us while we work with our vendors and local partners to provide you with detailed information.

    If you have further questions please call the APSA office and we will answer questions as best and expediently as we can.

    The decision to cancel the meeting was made in consultation with members from the APSA Administrative Committee, Executive Director Michael Brintnall, and planning staff in New Orleans.

    Clearly, God has vindicated the APSA 2012 Super-DOMA boycott.
