Do you offer group registration?
Yes, we offer group registration for employee and agency groups. Registrations are consolidated into one invoice so that group members do not have to pay individually. A group administrator must register the group first and will then receive group member registration instructions. For groups of eight or more, we offer a ten percent discount for registrations received by our early bird rate deadline of March 13, 2020. After this date, regular fees apply. Seat sharing is not permitted under any circumstances.
There are no cancellations, refunds, or credits for group registrations. See Tuition and Cancellation Policy.
Group registration closes on March 20, 2020.
Can I cancel my conference registration?
Please refer to the Tuition and Cancellation Policy page.
How can I switch into a different session than I initially registered for?
Requests for session switches will be accepted by email until April 2, 2020. After this date, session switches are no longer available due to meeting room assignment and capacity considerations.
What can I expect in terms of food and refreshments?
The venue offers water stations, so we encourage you to bring your own water bottle to fill throughout the conference.

I originally registered for both the Thursday Evening Public Address and the Saturday conference, but can no longer attend on Thursday night. Can I get a $20 refund for Thursday?
Not a problem – we will refund your $20, as long as your cancellation occurs on or before April 2, 2020. After this date, no refunds will be given.
To cancel the Thursday Evening Public Address, please contact our registrar firstname.lastname@example.org.
I registered for the optional lunch buffet but have decided to bring my own, instead. Is it possible to refund the $26?
We are happy to give you a full refund on the optional lunch, as long as your cancellation occurs on or before April 2, 2020. After this date, no refunds will be given.
To cancel the optional lunch, please contact our registrar email@example.com.
May I bring my children with me to the conference?
Childcare is not available. Babes in arms are warmly invited, but please take them for a little walk if they have a lot to say or tears to cry so they do not disturb the presenter or audience. Active children are distracting for our presenters and participants and are best left in the care of others.
May I bring my partner or childcare provider with me to the conference?
Of course, but conference fees are per person, so each of you will need to register separately. Seat sharing is not permitted.
I can only attend for part of the day. Can I share my registration with someone else?
Sorry, seat sharing is not permitted. Conference fees are per person, so each participant will need to register separately.
I won’t know until the last minute if I will be able to attend. Is walk-in registration on the day of the conference available?
Walk-in registrations will not be available. Registration closes April 9, 2020 at 5:00 pm Pacific … or earlier if all seats are taken before then.
