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 20 are fully refundable. Written cancellations received March 20–31 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 31; however, full attendee substitutions for persons from the same organization may be made through April 23 at onsite registration. We regret that individual registration benefits are not transferable. Send cancellations and substitutions to the ION National Office at

Credit Card Transfer: If an attendee pays by credit card, and at a future date requests to have these fees refunded and charged to a different card, they will be assessed a $200 transaction fee.
