If you must cancel after registering, your registration fee (and any Certification exam fees) will be refunded less a 20% handling fee, provided that written notice of cancellation is received by November 14, 2014. After that, the refund is 50%. No refunds will be granted after November 21, 2014 (for tution or Certification exam fees), but we will accept a substitute attendee if we receive a written note from the registered attendee stating his or her intention to transfer registration to a named individual.

Speaker Substitutions and Course Cancellations

We reserve the right to substitute speakers, cancel seminars, or cancel the entire event. In such cases, our liability is limited to refunding the registration fees you have paid for the affected days. Speakers may need to be substituted in case of illness, accidents, airline problems, or other issues that prevent a scheduled speaker from presenting as planned. We will endeavor to get a substitute speaker, but this may not always be possible because of the expertise required and the short notice available in most such cases.
