Cancellation & Refunds
The AKCPA reserves the right to cancel any presentation due to insufficient registration or the inability of the discussion leader to speak at a scheduled seminar. Each registrant will be notified and registration fees will be fully refunded. The AKCPA is not responsible for penalties incurred by registrants who must cancel travel arrangements.
Full refund, less an administrative fee of $25, will be available when registration is cancelled more than 21 days prior to the presentation date. No refund is available for cancellations within 21 days of the presentation date. Any refunds made due to extenuating circumstances will be referred to the CPE committee and will be based on their consideration of the individual situation.
If you cannot attend a class for which you have registered, you may find a substitute. If the individual is not a member then the non member fee will apply. The Society office should be notified of this in advance. If a program is two days in duration the same person must attend both days.
