REGISTRATION POLICIES

Early-bird rates apply to all registration submitted online by August 17, 2012. Payment must accompany registration form. If payment is not received within 30 days of receipt of the registration form, registrant will be charged the prevailing rate (i.e. Advance or Late). Please note that registration fees increase for forms submitted after August 17, 2012, and October 12, 2012. Registrations received after October 12, 2012, will be charged the late registration rate.

The conference rates for NYLA members are for NYLA personal members. Institutional members are permitted to send one member of their staff who is not a NYLA member to the conference at member rates (designated representative). A letter from the institution’s director must accompany the staff member’s registration form.

Student registrants must send a copy of their current student bill or bursar’s receipt with their registration form.
 

REFUNDS

Written requests with signature for Conference or Continuing Education workshop refunds must be postmarked or faxed by October 12, 2012. 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.

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. Refunds will be processed as promptly as possible after the close of the Conference. Refunds will not be offered for discounted registrations - Unemployed Librarian, Student, Friend, Trustee, Retiree, or any Single Day Registrations.

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.

Update:

Our thoughts are with all those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

In light of the unforeseen circumstances, cancellations due to the hurricane, received by November 8, 2012, will be given a full credit voucher for next year’s event and the administrative fee will be waived.

Please note, conference special event tickets are not eligible for refund or voucher.  (As we have already submitted guaranteed counts to the event providers and will be incur the cost of the meals.)
