Cancellation Policy

Cancellation requests for WCSAD 2021 must be received in writing by emailing Katie Myvett or postmarked by 21 days out from meeting. A cancellation fee of $100.00 (or full registration amount, whichever is less) will be deducted from the refund.  In lieu of a refund, you may also request a voucher for participation in a future meeting taking place within 12 months.

Registrants wishing to cancel may instead transfer their registration to someone else without penalty if they send a written request with the replacement person’s name by  5 days before meeting start date.

Cancellations received after  date of event will be issued a voucher for participation in a future meeting.  If you do not cancel in advance, no refunds will be issued once the event has concluded, regardless of whether you participated in the event.

Cancellations for hotel and transportation reservations must be handled by the individual registrant directly with the hotel, airline, and/or other company. 

Credit vouchers may be offered should program be suspended or shortened due to conditions or circumstances beyond HMP’s control, including but not limited to weather, interruptions in internet services, power outages and any cancellations/modifications related to the COVID-19 epidemic. 

Force Majeure

  • If WCSAD is prevented from carrying out its obligations as it pertains to the Conference you registered for as a result of any cause beyond its control, or such Conference cannot be held or does not occur due to acts of God, strikes, labor disputes, government requisitions, restrictions or regulations on travel, hotel or facility availability, commodities or supplies, war or apparent act of war, terrorism, disaster, civil disorder, epidemic or pandemic, curtailment or restriction on transportation facilities, or any other comparable calamity, casualty or condition (collectively a “Force Majeure”) WCSAD will refund the cost of registration. However, WCSAD does not assume responsibility for any additional costs, charges, or expenses; to include, charges made for travel and lodging. Refunds will be processed within 60 days of notification.
  • If the Conference is postponed due to a Force Majeure occurrence before the first day of the Conference, then WCSAD will reschedule the affected Conference, if and as practical under the circumstances, and your registration fee will be applied to the rescheduled Conference. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled conference, then you may transfer the registration fee you paid, upon written notification to WCSAD management, towards another WCSAD Conference, which is scheduled to held within 18 months from the date of the affected Conference. WCSAD reserves the right, at its discretion, to approve or deny such registration fee transfer requests. If there is a difference in the registration fees between the affected Conference and the alternative Conference, the difference in the registration fees will be charged or refunded, as applicable, on the credit, you used to register for the affected Conference.

Health and Safety

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the focus at HMP Global has been the health and safety of our customers, staff, and communities. Vaccinations have reduced many of the COVID-19 guidelines/mandates regarding face masks, social distancing, and travel. In many states and cities, guidelines/mandates have been completely eliminated.

As HMP Global moves forward with producing live meetings and conferences, we will continue to monitor the continually evolving guidance released by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as all federal, state, and local government mandates, to provide an environment that is as safe as possible for all event participants.

By participating in person, I agree to follow the meeting’s health and safety policies as mandated by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the federal, state, and local government.
