Cancellation Policy

All requests for refunds must be made in writing. CIC reserves the right to deny refunds. Attendees may cancel their registration with the applicable cancelation fee if written (via mail, fax or email) notification is sent to CIC by 5:00pm EST on Friday, August 8, 2014. A cancellation fee of $75 will be subtracted from the registration fee and the remainder will be refunded via the original method of payment. CIC cannot postpone registrations and/or transfer fees to future Conclaves. Cancellations made after the cancelation deadline and no shows for the conference will result in forfeiture of the entire registration fee.

Exceptions to the Cancellation Policy: The CIC recognizes that serious issues may arise that could prevent an attendee from cancelling their registration within the timeframe prescribed above. There are five (5) acceptable reasons for cancelling after the cancellation deadline:

 Serious illness or disabling injury– either you or an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent, etc.)
 Death in the immediate family
 Court appearance or jury duty
 Unexpected military duty call-up
 Civil disobedience or acts of terrorism/war

In the event the registrant is no longer able to attend the conference, substitutions of a business colleague/co-worker (must also be a current, active Certified Meeting Professional)  will be accepted until August 22, 2014 at 5:00pm EST, with a $50 processing fee. The original registrant must submit the replacement's name and contact information in writing to

No Show Policy
If one of the reasons listed above prevented you from attending Conclave, you may request a refund minus the cancellation fee in writing to CIC within fourteen (14) calendar days following the final date of the conference. The written request must be accompanied by meaningful documentation supporting the claim that the situation physically prevented the registrant from attending the conference, through no fault on the part of the attendee. Approved requests will be issued a refund less the applicable cancellation fee of $75.
