Chapter Event Refund Policy

We understand that due to conflicting work commitments an attendee may be unable to attend an event. Refunds will be made if:

  • 3 days prior to the event, the registered attendee notifies the chapter via that they would like a refund.
  • Less than 3 days prior to the event, the registered attendee may notify the chapter via that they would like to assign admission to another individual.
  • If the Chapter cancels an event, refunds will be issued to all registered attendees.

Due to our venue contract requirements to provide minimum notice for headcount guarantees, we require the above timelines to be adhered to by our attendees.  As a result, it is the Chapter's practice to not issue refunds when someone does not attend an event and has not advised the Chapter in advance using the process as stated above.
