If you cannot attend the Conference, you may transfer your registration to another attendee, request a refund, or leave the fee paid as payment towards the next Conference that takes place in the following year of the originally booked event.
Any refunds requested on or prior to the early registration deadline for the Conference will be refunded the full amount paid minus a set processing fee.
No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after the early registration deadline, unless in accordance with the Emergency Policy below. Transfers can be allowed up to the day of the Conference.
All cancellations, requests for transfer or requests to apply payment to future conferences must be sent in writing via e-mail or regular mail to the conference registration chair. Telephone requests will not be honored. Please fax or email cancellation requests, if possible. If necessary to cancel by USPS, please allow sufficient time for a response.
In the event double payment is received for a registrant, a full refund of the excess payment may be processed.
All refunds will be made by check regardless of method of payment
Emergency Illness or Death of Registrant or Immediate Family Member
Refunds may be granted if an attendee is unable to attend the conference due to a family death, illness, or other extraordinary circumstance. In such a circumstance, the Section Manager must be contacted by phone, letter or e-mail. If initial notification is by phone, it must be followed up in writing. Refunds may still be subject to a processing fee.
