Our conference cancellations and refunds must be made in writing and received 10 days prior to the program date. Send the request via email or mail to the address below.  The confirmation number will be needed to expedite your refund and cancellation. This number can be found on your confirmation page or email receipt. There will be a $10 processing fee for all cancellations. Certain conference may have a different cancellation fee based on meeting location and event pricing. Cancellation requests must be submitted by the original conference registrant.

Conference Receipts

The confirmation page or email containing the receipt number and program name acts as a receipt and verification of payment when paying via credit or debit card or PayPal.
