CNPS Workshop Cancellation Policy

About the policy
The plant science training program is self-funding, so every workshop registration gained or lost has an impact. Before registering for a CNPS workshop, be sure to review this complete policy and take note of the cancellation deadline stated on the workshop’s webpage, which is implemented to help ensure CNPS is able to make sound budgetary decisions based on the number of registered attendees ahead of the workshop. Thank you for your understanding of our strict cancellation policy.

Refunds & cancellation fees
All cancellation/refund requests must be submitted in writing to Becky Reilly, breilly@cnps.org, before the cancellation deadline. A $50 cancellation fee will be deducted from each registration fee refund. (You may alternatively request a registration name change instead of cancelling completely, see below for details.)

Cancellation deadline
If you need to cancel your registration after the stated cancellation deadline, CNPS will be unable to issue any refund for your workshop registration and you will forfeit your payment, regardless of personal or professional emergency. (You may alternatively request a registration name change instead of cancelling completely, see below for details.) Please let us know if you do not plan to attend at all, so we know not to expect you on the day of.

Registration name changes
Registration name changes are accepted any time before the first day of the workshop. Please have the original registrant e-mail Becky Reilly, breilly@cnps.org, with the name and e-mail of the person who will be attending in their place. If the original registration was purchased at the CNPS member rate, but the attendee whose name is being changed onto the registration is not a CNPS member, you may be asked to pay the difference between the CNPS member and non-member rate. If the original registration was purchased at the non-member rate, and the attendee whose name is being changed onto the registration is a CNPS member, then the difference in registration rates will not be refunded.

Transfers between workshops
CNPS does not allow for transfers between workshops. If you are signed up for a workshop and want to switch into a different class, you must go through the cancellation and refund process and sign up separately for the new workshop.
