In response to favorable member feedback, AAPA is updating and bringing back the Energy and Environment Seminar that was last held in Vancouver, Canada, in September 2016. The 2018 seminar will move across the continent to Jersey City, NJ (Sept. 11-12), and again focus on energy as both a commodity/business line and a power source/cost-savings opportunity for ports.
Further information about the 2018 AAPA workshop, seminar and conference programs is now available on the AAPA website. Additional day-long, topic-specific programs may be added to the AAPA website during the year which don’t appear below.
