Registrants who find they are unable to attend the conference and/or preconference institute may identify a substitute who will attend the conference and/or preconference institute in their place. There is no fee for substitutions made prior to the first day of the event. Cancellation refund requests for conference and/or preconference institute registration payment must be received via email to by May 1, 2024.

For invoices that have already been paid, the refund will be processed (less a $100 cancellation processing fee per registrant) within 15 business days of the cancellation request. For invoices that have not yet been paid, the $100 cancellation fee is due within 15 business days of the written cancellation request. I.E. encourages registrants to identify a substitute attendee to take their place to avoid a cancellation fee.

We are unable to honor refund requests made after May 1, 2024. Refunds are not granted for failure to attend, late arrival, unattended events, or early departure.
