Leadership Summit

Due to a large interest in the Summit, we may be forced to turn away interested participants if the registration for the meeting goes beyond our capacity. As a result, no-shows create a situation in which interested surgeons may be unable to attend. As a result, we must collect your credit card information to cover the cancellation fee as a result of cancellation or no-show. The cancellation/no-show fee will not be charged at the time of registration, but will be charged if you choose to cancel or not to attend the meeting.

Registration Cancellation Policy: Registration fees will be refunded if a written request is submitted to Registration Services by Friday, March 18. A $50 handling fee will be retained for all cancellations or no-shows. Cancellations received after March 18 will not be eligible for refund.

Please note, you may see an authorization/hold on your account depending on your credit card, but it will not be processed unless you no-show or cancel.

Advocacy Summit

Registration Cancellation Policy: Registration fees will be refunded if a written request is submitted to Registration Services by Friday, March 18. A $50 handling fee will be retained for all cancellations. Cancellations received after March 18 will not be eligible for refund.
