By registering for CAST, you are making a reservation for yourself and are subject to payment in full for this reservation.Please note that when you register for this conference, you will be held accountable for payment of your registration, as detailed in Section III of the Terms and Conditions.
There are two registration options:
1) Registration in a group, with a group administrator, or
2) Individual registration.
If you are a group administrator who is registering a group, you are responsible for the entire group’s fees. The group administrator must be attending the conference. If registering individually, you are responsible for your own fees. Please determine whether you are registering individually or as a group before you submit your registration, as you may not register more than once (detailed below).
Registering Twice: Our system will only allow one registration per e-mail address. We must treat any additional registration of an attendee as a separate person. This means that both registrations will be billed and held accountable for cancellation, as detailed in Section III. In the event that you have problems with your registration, please call the office at 512-491-6685 or email us at email@example.com.
Payment Policy. You must pay for the conference before you attend. All registrations must be paid in full prior to the conference start date of 11/7/2013. If payment has not been made, registrants will not be allowed to attend the conference. Again, Purchase Orders will not be accepted.
Invoicing Procedure. The individual who registered will be e-mailed a confirmation of registration including the balance due. This e-mail is your invoice and should be submitted to your accounts payable department. If you need a hardcopy invoice, or your district needs an invoice faxed to them, please contact the STAT office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the names of the registrants, and the fax number to which the invoice needs to be sent. Invoices will not be faxed unless requested.
III. Cancellation and Refund Policy
Cancellations for conference registration will be accepted until October 24, 2013, but are subject to a $25 cancellation fee. All optional sessions (short courses and field trips) canceled by October 24 will be refunded in full. A $25 fee will also be charged for insufficient fund checks and disputing valid credit card charges. Refunds of $25 or less will not be processed.
After October 24, 2013, we will not accept cancellations for the conference or any optional sessions. All registrants who fail to cancel before this deadline will be required to pay for the full registration cost they committed to, as well as any additional items they may have purchased. Registrants who do not pay their balance will not be eligible to attend future CAST conferences.
Duplicate Registrations. As detailed in Section II, if you register multiple times, you are responsible for payment for each registration as if they were a separate person.
NOTE: Attendees who have paid for sessions (short courses, field trips) that are canceled by STAT will receive full refunds for the session.
