I have read and accept the Videotaping and Photography Policy and the Cancellation and Refund Policy.
Videotaping and Photography Policy: Videotaping and photography of conference participants at conference events may occur. Western Section of TWS may use photographs and videos of conference attendees for any lawful purpose, including publicity, illustration, advertising, newsletter, and web content. During sessions that will be videotaped, "no photo" areas will be available in each room. More information will be available at the conference registration desk. I acknowledge and agree with these terms for use of videos and photographs.
Cancellation and Refund Policy: To receive a refund of conference and workshop registration fees, we must receive your cancellation no later than 14 days before the first day of the conference. There will be no refunds due to inclement weather, Federal budget issues, furloughs or other events beyond the control of TWS-West. All refunds are subject to a $50 processing fee. Requests for refunds must be submitted in writing, either by mail or e-mail. Refund requests received within 14 days of the start of the conference will not be processed regardless of personal or professional emergency, and no refund after that date is available. However, registration may be transferred to another individual for a $25 transfer fee.
