REGISTRATION POLICIES

Early-bird rates apply to all registrations submitted online by August 22, 2014.  Payment must be received within 30 days of receipt of the registration submission, if not the registrant will be charged the prevailing rate (i.e. Advanced or Late).  Please note that the registration fees increase after August 22, 2014 and October 10, 2014.  Registrations submitted after October 10, 2014, will be charged the late registration rate.

The conference rates for NYLA members are for NYLA personal members (including Associate members).  Organizational members are permitted to send all associate members at the discounted NYLA member rate.

GROUP REGISTRATIONS

Organizations that register four or more individuals to attend the conference will receive a discount on their total overall amount due of ten percent (10%).  The discount applies to registration fees only and is not applicable to special events (package plan registration and pre-conference CE workshops are eligible).  In order to qualify for the group registration discount, the sponsoring organization must be an organizational member of NYLA, all registrations in the group must be submitted at one time, and all registrations must be paid by a single organizational payment (check or credit card).  Please denote on the online registration form that the registration is part of a group.  Following submission, as revised adjusted invoice will be issued with the correct discounted total due.  The deadline for submitting a Group registration is September 30, 2014. Group registration payments are due within 30 days of receipt of the submission, if not the registrants will be charged the prevailing rate (i.e. Advanced or Late).

REFUNDS

Written requests with signature for Conference or Continuing Education workshop refunds must be postmarked or faxed by Setptember 30, 2014. An administrative processing fee of $50 will be deducted from the amount refunded. NYLA will honor requests for refunds which are received by the stated deadline, and will retain only an administrative fee from them.  Refunds will not be offered for discounted registrations - Unemployed Librarian, Student, Friend, Trustee, Retiree, or any Single Day Registrations.

After the deadline has passed, no refunds will be issued.

Instead, the registration amount, less a $50 administrative-processing fee, will be credited toward the conference or the Institutes in the next calendar year only. No credit or refund will be issued for unused funds. If the recipient fails to attend the subsequent conference or a NYLA Institute before the close of the following calendar year, no refund will be made and no further credit given. The credit is nontransferable based on the person or organization who made the original payment. Refunds will be processed as promptly as possible after the close of the Conference. Credit vouchers will not be offered for discounted registrations - Student, Friend, Trustee, Retiree, or any Single Day Registrations.  No refund credit will be issued for special event tickets after the cancelation deadline has passed.

In fairness to all attendees, registrants who do not attend the Conference will be liable for their entire Conference fee. Full refunds will be made if a Continuing Education Workshop and/or special event is canceled or closed out.
