Payment of registration and weekend workshop fees may be made by credit card or check.  SESUG does not accept purchase orders.  If payment is made by check, the check must be postmarked on or before the end date for the corresponding registration fee under which the registration was made (i.e. a check for a registration made within the early registration time period must be postmarked on or before August 18, 2008.)   If payment is not received or postmarked by the end date for the corresponding registration fee, registration fees will be increased to those of the next registration time period.


  Cancellation / Refund Policy

Conference registrations that are cancelled in writing by September 18, 2008 will receive a refund of the conference registration fees MINUS a $25 processing charge.  Conference registration cancellations received after September 18, 2008 will not be refunded.

If you are unable to attend the conference, your registration fee can be transferred, at no charge, to another attendee with the approval of the conference registrar.
