Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations will only be considered when received in writing. Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis you may receive a full refund for your conference registration (less a 5% credit card processing fee) for written cancellations received by the Council on or before August 15, 2021. All requests for cancellations and refunds should be emailed to: Registrants who do not show up for the conference – and do not contact the Council (via written correspondence as listed above) prior to the end of the conference – automatically forfeit all registration fees paid unless your inability to contact us was due to a verifiable medical emergency that occurred within one week prior to the start of the conference. In this instance, the postmarked deadline to receive your request for a partial refund is August 25, 2021. Regretfully, no considerations can be made after this date.

Replacement and Transfer

If you are unable to attend for any reason, you can transfer your registration to another person without penalty. Simply email a copy of your registration confirmation, with a letter stating your request along with the contact information (full name, email address and phone number) of the person replacing you to
