Early-bird rates apply to all registrations submitted online by August 31, 2017.  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 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017.  Registrations submitted after September 30, 2017, will be charged the late registration rate.

NYLA members (including Individual, Organizational-Associate, and Support Staff members) are eligible for discounted member rates. Organizational members are permitted to send all associate members at the discounted NYLA member rate.  Special discounted rates are available to NYLA members of the Retired, Trustee, Student, and Friend member types.


Individual organizations that register four or more individuals to attend the conference will receive a REBATE on their total overall amount due of ten percent (10%).  The rebate 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 organization must be an organizational member of NYLA, and all registrations must be paid by a single organizational payment (check or credit card).  Please denote in the notes field on the online registration form that the registration is part of a group.  Following the 2017 Conference, rebates will be distributed in the form of a credit voucher that can be applied toward 2018 conference registrations.  The deadline for submitting a Group registration is August 31, 2017. 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).


Written requests with signature for Conference or Continuing Education workshop refunds must be postmarked or faxed by September 30, 2017. 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; Student, Friend, Trustee, Retiree, or any Single Day Registrations.

After the September 30, 2017 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 voucher is transferable. 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, and do not submit notification of cancellation prior to 6:00 PM of the day prior to their scheduled attendance, 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.
