Registration fees for seminars and events are non-refundable. If a registrant needs to cancel his or her attendance at a seminar or event, the registration fee associated with the cancellation is transferable in the form of a credit in the dollar amount of the registration fee. 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.
