Conference Cancellation Policy

CHECO acknowledges that situations arise in the IT field that may prohibit members who have registered for a CHECO conference from being able to attend. If such a situation arises, the registered member may cancel their registration for a full refund provided that the cancellation is made at least 2 weeks prior to the first day of the conference at which they are registered. If the registrant determines that he/she cannot attend within 2 weeks of the start of the conference, they may find a substitute to attend in their place at no charge. The CHECO treasurer should be notified of any substitutions as soon as they have been identified so that the conference venue can receive an accurate list of guests. If no substitute can be found, the registrant is responsible for any registration fees incurred, paid or unpaid, at the time of cancellation. If a registrant cannot attend due to a personal emergency, he/she may make an appeal in writing to any member of the CHECO board. The board will determine what refund, if any, will be made on a case by case basis at their next meeting.
