CANCELLATION POLICY

Requests for refunds must be received in writing at the SAC office by March 18, 2020. For refund requests received by March 18, 2020, a $75.00 administration fee will apply. No refunds will be given after March 18, 2020.

In the event of an unexpected cancellation of a session due to speaker unavailability, SAC will make every effort to replace the session with a comparable substitute. Registration fees applying to these circumstances are non-refundable.

HANDOUTS

Session handouts will be available on the SAC website prior to The 2020 SAC Conference. Handouts will not be available onsite. Download links will be available closer to the Conference.

Please note: Not all speakers choose to publish their handouts on the website, therefore there may not be a handout for every session you choose to attend. The 2020 SAC Conference Advisory Group has requested that speakers, at a minimum, provide an outline for delegates attending their sessions. However, this is the speaker’s choice and we cannot guarantee that all speakers will provide handouts or outlines.
