All cancellations must be received in writing by the cancellation deadline.  Email is an acceptable form of notification.  Unless otherwise stated in the event information or confirmation, the cancellation deadline for in-person events is the earlier of the hotel reservation cut-off or thirty (30) days before the start of the event.  Webinars and online events cannot be cancelled after registration confirmation has been provided.  Refunds will not be given for cancellations after the cancellation deadline.  Any person who remains on a waitlist after the cancellation deadline for the event is committing to register for the event if a spot becomes available and may not cancel once a registration has been confirmed; persons who cannot commit to registering must ask to be removed from the waitlist before the cancellation deadline. Notice of cancellation after the deadline does not negate the obligation to pay the registration fee.  However, a new attendee can be substituted at any time at no additional charge. 

No refunds will be given for failure to attend an event unless a cancellation was received in writing by the deadline.  A registrant who does not attend an in-person event and does not provide timely notice will be marked a "no show" and will not receive a refund or a credit.  Absent a timely cancellation, failure to attend does not negate the obligation to pay the registration fee.

Webinar and other online event registrants must inform us of missing access instructions at least twelve (12) hours before the start of the event.  Failure to timely inform us prior the start of the event will result in the registrant being marked as a "no show" if the registrant does not attend.  A "no show" registrant for a webinar or other online event will not receive a refund and is still obligated to pay the registration fee but will receive access to a recorded version of the event (where available).
