Registrations will be processed only when accompanied by full payment. If a check is returned by the bank for insufficient funds, full payment must include an additional $30 for bank processing charges and must be paid with a cashier’s check, money order, or credit card. If you do not receive registration confirmation one week prior to the meeting, contact the AMSN National Office at 866-877-2676 or email@example.com. Purchase orders are not accepted as payment. (All fees are in U.S. dollars.)
Cancellations and Substitutions
If you are unable to attend the convention for the live sessions, we want you to know that all session recordings will be available on-demand in the AMSN Online Library for up to two years after the convention. Enjoy the convenience of a self-paced, on-demand, extended learning experience to accommodate your busy schedule.
If you still decide to cancel your registration, we can do that minus the $75 administrative fee. Cancellations cannot be accepted after August 13, 2020. AMSN membership dues are non-refundable and non-transferable. All other monies will be returned to the party who originally issued payment. If you are unable to attend, a substitution may be made. If your substitute is not an AMSN member, additional fees may apply. In the event AMSN should find it necessary to cancel or postpone this convention or sessions for any reason including, but not limited to, registration responses, strikes, pandemics, or acts of God, AMSN will not be liable for registrants’ expenses. In whatever manner the cancellation/postponement is ultimately resolved, AMSN will act responsibly to protect members’ and registrants’ investment in the convention and association.
