Event Payment and Cancellation Notices



In order to continue to improve chapter operations, enhance controls, and adhere to the preferences of IIA Headquarters, there will be two methods of payment for luncheons - via credit card online or by check at the door.

Payment must be made in advance or at the door of the event. NO CASH or credit/debit cards can be accepted at the door; only checks can be accepted at the event.


If you prefer that your employer pay for your attendance, when registering select the option to pay at the door. When you receive your registration confirmation email, it will include a link to pay balance due. Forward this email to your accounts payable folks. They can then click that link and pay for you by credit card. They do not need your password. However, they must pay your balance prior to the registration deadline for you to gain admittance into the luncheon. This is to ensure sufficient space and meals, as well as reduce post event collection efforts.


Payment by purchase orders for full or half day seminars only.  Please ensure payments submitted by your agency or through the comptroller include either the member name or the invoice number so that we can accurately allocate that payment to your profile.


No cancellations accepted after the registration/cancellation deadline. If you are unable to attend, you may send another member in your place.


No shows will be billed the full amount of the event.​​
