Make Plans Now for Golf

Calling all golfers! ACPA is asking anyone interested in playing golf during the upcoming Annual Meeting to select the golf option on the event registration section of the annual meeting website.  The pro shop has asked that we provide an estimated number of golfers by next Tuesday, October 1. 

Golf is planned to begin at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, December 3, at the nearby English Turn Golf Club. Transportation will be provided to and from the course.

Please help us plan ahead by selecting the golf option, and if you haven’t made your hotel and event registration plans yet, now is the perfect time to register for the annual meeting.  This will ensure you reserve specially-priced hotel rooms at the New Orleans Marriott and provide us with accurate counts for planning luncheons, receptions and other details of the meeting.
