Registration: To take advantage of our early-bird discounts, register on or before March 1. We will confirm registrations postmarked by June 5. Starting June 6 and later, please call +1 847.699.2929 to register.

Payment: You must submit a completed registration form, along with full payment, to process your registration (your credit card information or company check payable to ASSP). We will not process registrations without full payment.

Groups: Bring eight or more colleagues from your company and save on the entire conference. The more attendees you have and the earlier you register, the more you save. All attendees from your group must be registered by June 5, 5:00 pm CDT*.

Note: If cancellations reduce your group size to a lower discount level, each registrant will be billed the difference between the discount applied and the next discount level fee. *Rates vary based on registration date. Contact Nancy O’Toole at +1.847.768.3466 or notoole@assp.org.

Substitutions: To substitute one person for another, please submit the information by April 29 to customerservice@assp.org. If the registration rate has changed, you will be charged the difference. After April 29, a $95 substitution fee will apply.

Cancellations: ASSP will grant full refunds to cancellation requests received by April 20 via e-mail to customerservice@assp.org. We will assess the following fees to cancellations received via e-mail between April 21 and May 11: Conference $310; Pre/Post-Conference Courses $100/course. After May 11, no refunds will be issued. In addition, no refunds will be issued for any missed sessions or events (luncheons, etc.), including sessions or events missed due to travel delays or cancellations.

Government: To receive the government rate, you must be a full-time local, state or federal government employee. ASSP must receive a completed government purchase order (PO) or training authorization form with your registration form if not paid in full at the time of registration. However, this is not considered payment. Your registration will have a balance due until full payment is received. ASSP will return registrations received without a PO or training authorization form.

Consent: If you allow your badge to be scanned by an exhibitor, you agree to ASSP sharing your full contact information with the exhibitor. Registration and attendance at, or participation in ASSP professional development, constitutes an agreement by the registrant to ASSP’s use and distribution of the attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions, and audio tapes of such events and activities.

Program Changes: ASSP makes every effort to ensure that the program schedule, events and prices remain as published. However, since unforeseen changes may occur, we reserve the right to make changes. Please review the program book on site for changes.
