NCFR is committed to addressing systemic racism and opening doors where racial and ethnic barriers exist.

Cancellations and Refunds

Registration refund requests for the 2023 NCFR Annual Conference (the “Conference”) must be submitted to NCFR in writing and emailed or postmarked on or before Oct. 12, 2023, to the following email address or mailing address: [email protected] or NCFR, 661 LaSalle St., St. Paul MN  55114. No refunds will be granted for any requests received after October 12, 2023, regardless of the reason for the request. All registration refunds are subject to a processing fee of $60 ($30 for students). If the conference registration was part of a membership bundle only the conference registration will be refunded net of the processing fee. The membership portion of the bundle will not be refunded. There will be no registration refunds for Conference workshops unless NCFR cancels the Conference or the workshop. If NCFR cancels the Conference or the workshop, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in postponement of the Conference, NCFR has the right to either issue a full refund or transferring registration to the same event at a new date. If, for reasons outside of the control of NCFR, the Conference is presented as a virtual Conference rather than in-person Conference, NCFR will not be liable for any Conference registration fees, hotel expenses, and/or travel expenses that registrants may have incurred in connection with the Conference.
