Refunds & Cancellations Policy: EVAWI understands that circumstances change and there may be emergencies that prevent an individual from attending the conference.

  • No refund will be provided if you have not cancelled your registration prior to midnight on April 21, 2017. If you are registered for the conference at this point, we have incurred significant expenses on your behalf, and the FULL registration fee is due whether or not you attend.
  • If your registration is cancelled by midnight (PST)* on April 21, 2017, we will refund your registration fee less a $100 administrative fee. Cancellation and refund requests must be made in writing and emailed to Jessica@evawintl.org or faxed to 774-404-7108. Refunds will be processed within 30 days of receiving your cancellation.

To help avoid the loss of an individual’s registration fee or to avoid the $100.00 cancellation fee, you may substitute another person in your place at no charge. To make a substitution, complete a manual conference registration form for the substitute participant and email it to info@evawintl.org. The name of the original registrant MUST be included.

If you have any questions about your registration, please call our financial manager, Jessica Fisher, at 774-404-7108 or email Jessica@evawintl.org
