2022 NEC Cancellation Policies

Attendee Transfers, Refunds and Cancellations

After registering, if you cannot attend the conference, you may transfer your registration to another attendee from your organization in the same registration category (such as government planner, contract planner or supplier). All transfer requests must be in writing and sent to membership@sgmp.org no later than Monday, June 6, 2022. Or, you may request a refund based on refund deadlines below. All cancellations must be in writing and sent to membership@sgmp.org. Cancellations and substitutions will not be accepted over the phone.

  • Registrations cancelled before Thursday, April 7, 2022, will receive a full refund less a $30 handling fee, within 45 days after the conference.
  • Registrations cancelled from April 8 – April 22, 2022, will be refunded 50% of the registration fee.
  • Registrations cancelled after Friday, April 22, 2022, will not be eligible for a refund unless it is in accordance with the Emergency Policy below.

No membership fees will be refunded. No-shows for the event will not receive a refund or credit towards future event(s).

Emergency Policy

Refunds to those who registered and paid for the 2022 NEC may be granted if an attendee is unable to attend the conference due to an immediate family member death, illness or other extraordinary circumstance. In such a circumstance, SGMP headquarters must be contacted by letter or email to membership@sgmp.org. Refunds will still be subject to the $30 handling fee and membership fee will be retained. A request does not guarantee the refund will be approved. The final decision on refund rests with the SGMP National Board of Directors’ designee.

SGMP’s Event Cancellation Policy

The Society of Government Meeting Professionals reserves the right to cancel this event due to low enrollment or other circumstances which would make the event non-viable. If SGMP cancels an event, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in the postponement of an event, SGMP has the right to either issue a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at the new, future date. SGMP will not be responsible for reimbursement of any participant’s expenses due to the cancellation or postponement of an event.
