- REGISTRATION DISCOUNTS -

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


TEAM DISCOUNT

Team registration saves each person on the team $10 off the registration fee. You will receive this discount IF...

1. TWO OR MORE persons from the same organization register for the same conference.

2. Each person on the team completes and submits their own "Registration Form" with the same organization name.

AND...

3. ONE Check or ONE P.O. for conference registration fees is sent to pay for the whole team at the same time and lists the team members' names.

4. In the case of a team discount, one written confirmation will be sent to one team member for the entire team. The team leader is expected to distribute copies of the confirmation information to the team members.

NOTE:


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 registration AND the CHECK OR signed PURCHASE ORDER for the
conference registration fee must be received BY MAY 1, 2003
Individuals for whom these requirements are met may deduct the "Early Registration Discount" of $10.


Cancellation policy - We understand that unforeseen events may effect 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.

A cancellation policy is needed for many reasons. 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 thousands of 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 don't have the time to replace your registration. There are other issues in addition to these. Finally, my own travel schedule, and therefore, my ability to receive written cancellation, is considered in the dates below.

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

Refunds are calculated as follows:
