IFIS Registration Policies

Cancellation/Refund Policy:

All cancellations/substitutions must be received in writing at the ION National Office. Fees for written cancellations received on, or prior to, March 16 are fully refundable. Written cancellations received March 17 - 26 are refundable less a $200 cancellation fee. The fee is to cover obligations incurred by the ION in making registration arrangements and does not entitle the registrant to any of the conference materials. Refunds will not be given for no shows or for cancellations received after March 26; however, full attendee substitutions for persons from the same organization that can assume the fees paid by the original registrant may be made through April 20 at onsite registration. We regret that individual registration benefits are not transferable. Email cancellations and substitutions to registration@ion.org

The credit card number provided at time of registration will be charged for all registration fees. Requests to have these fees refunded and charged to a different credit card will be assessed a $200 transaction fee.
