Registration Policy

Each year, the Association incurs costs associated with late registrations and no-shows. To take into account these increasing costs, we are implementing a refund and cancellation policy that will be enforced during the registration time frame of DirectEmployers 2017 Annual Meeting & Conference (DEAM17). See the information below to review the terms for all attendees:

Late Registration

In order to provide you with the best conference experience, we ask that each attendee registers no later than April 15, 2017. All individuals who register after the April 15th deadline will be charged an additional $95.00 administration fee to cover last minute expenses and overages.

Canceling and Refunding Your Registration

In the event that you need to cancel your registration, please do so by April 15, 2017, in order to receive a full refund for your registration. Registrants who cancel their registration after the April 15th deadline will forfeit their registration expenses. Registrants classified as event "no-shows" will also forfeit their initial registration fees.

For cancellation requests, please send an email stating your intent to Lis Dennis—

Please note: If for any reason you must cancel your conference registration, please remember to also cancel hotel accommodations. DirectEmployers Association is not responsible for hotel no-show fees or any travel or lodging expenses you might incur.
