Please note: Updates have been made to this policy to offer more flexibility during these uncertain times with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.
All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to K12conference@blackbaud.com. For a full refund of the Event registration fees, cancellation notices must be received by 11:59:59 p.m. ET on Friday, May 31, 2020. There will be no processing fee for this refund. Please note that registration fees paid via credit card will only be refunded to that card if cancellation is completed within 180 days of transaction date. After the 180-day window, you will likely experience delays in reimbursement as this will be a manual reimbursement process. No refunds will be granted after May 31, 2020 and there will be no refunds granted for no-shows. Any questions should be directed to K12conference@blackbaud.com.
Replacement of a registered conference attendee by a business colleague/co-worker will be accepted. One substitution per registration will be allowed at no charge if submitted by May 31, 2020.
Beginning June 1, 2020, a $75 (USD) processing fee will apply to all substitutions before the event and onsite. Original registrant must submit a written request for substitution to K12conference@blackbaud.com. A Blackbaud staff member will then contact the original registrant for more information on the substitute attendee. Payments for substitutions must be made before arriving onsite.
