Return to the TOP of the Page


EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT


YOU MAY USE ONLY ONE KIND OF DISCOUNT, either a TEAM or an EARLY DISCOUNT.

 

To receive the "Early Registration Discount" the CHECK OR PURCHASE ORDER for the

conference registration must be post marked BY AUGUST 16, 2002. Faxed P.O.s are OK but must be received by Aug. 16, 2002

 

Individuals for whom these requirements are met may deduct the "Early Registration Discount" of $10 per person.


Cancellation policy - We understand that unforeseen events may change a person's ability to attend the conference for which they have registered. Therefore, we will refund registration fees according to the following policy and to the extent that we have not already incurred costs for the registrant.

For example, after a certain date we must guarantee numbers to the hotel and pay for that number whether that many people actually come and eat anything. This cost totals mega dollars! Also, materials and supplies must be purchased and conference handouts must be copied several weeks in advance to allow the time needed to work with the printer and to build all the conference binders. Another concern occurs when we have reached the maximum registration and have begun to turn potential participants away. It is unfair if we then lose your business at the last moment and we do not have time to replace your registration. There are other issues in addition to these. That is why a cancellation policy is needed.

ALL CANCELLATIONS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING. EMAIL IS OK.

Refunds are calculated as follows:
