Individual organizations that register five or more individuals to attend the conference will receive a DISCOUNT on their total overall registration due.  In order to qualify for the group registration discount, the organization must be an organizational member of NYLA, and all registrations must be submitted as part of a single group registration, and paid by a single organizational payment (check or credit card).  The deadline for submitting a Group Registration is October 31, 2020. Group registration payments (or purchase orders) 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).

Group registration instructions and Group Registration Form



Early-bird rates apply to all registrations submitted online by September 30, 2020.  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 September 30, 2020 and October 31, 2020.  Registrations submitted after October 31, 2020, 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.  Registrations can be transferred to another attendee if the request for transfer is received by October 31, 2020.

Written requests for registration refunds must be submitted by October 31, 2020. An administrative processing fee of $25 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 rates).

After the October 31, 2020 deadline has passed, no refunds will be issued.

Instead, the registration amount, less a $25 administrative-processing fee, will be issued as a credit voucher toward NYLA events within the next calendar year only. No credit or refund will be issued for unused funds. If the recipient fails to redeem the voucher within a 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 rates).
In fairness to all attendees, registrants who do not attend the Conference, and do not submit notification of cancellation by 6:00 PM on November 4, 2020, will be liable for their entire Conference fee.
