Registration fees for seminars and events are non-refundable.

This credit may be used by any staff person of the registrant's organization and may be applied to the registration fee associated with another seminar or event hosted by AAPA, including the AAPA Annual Convention. The credit associated with the cancellation must be used at a seminar or event within one (1) year from the original seminar or event date.

If AAPA cancels an event, registrants will be notified in writing.

To use a credit to pay for your registration fee, please select Purchase Order when you register and type "use credit" without the quotes in the PO field. Your credit will be processed and an updated email confirmation will be sent from Imani Poindexter by email at ipoindexter@aapa-ports.org. Please contact Imani Poindexter if you have any questions about your remaining credit. Credits do not work as a payment method online.
