    Cancellations

    Registration fees, less a $100 cancellation fee per module, are refundable only if written notice is postmarked no later than 10 business days before each session date. All cancellation and refund requests must be made in writing to: ASHRM, 155 North Wacker, Suite 400, Chicago, IL 60606; fax (312) 422-4580.

    ASHRM reserves the right to reschedule or cancel a program because of an insufficient number of registrations or to close registration when programs are full. ASHRM may cancel a program when circumstances beyond ASHRM’s control – including, but not limited to, acts of God, governmental authority or war in the United States – make it impractical or impossible to host the program or may put participants in harm’s way. In such cases, ASHRM will refund one-half of the registration fee paid by the registrant.

    Substitutions
    Registrants unable to attend may send an alternate. All alternates must attend all sessions. If the alternate is not a member of ASHRM and the original registrant is a member, the nonmember differential must be paid.

    E-mail ashrm@aha.org for questions.
