Cancellation

A cancellation could always be an opportunity to exercise extraordinary generosity and donate your payments to the P-POD Scholarship Fund.

Any cancellation that results from your own illness or that of your immediate family members, will allow you these options:  
• applying toward any future P-POD event, all payments we received;  or
• if notice is received more than 8 days before the conference you registered for, receiving full refunds without any cancellation fee.

A cancellation for any other reason, requested 45 days or more prior to the conference you registered for, will allow you these options:
• applying toward any future P-POD event, all payments we received;  or
• receiving a refund of all payments we received, minus $45 which will go into the P-POD Scholarship Fund.

A cancellation for any other reason, requested less than 45 days but more than 8 days prior to the conference you registered for, will allow you these options:
• refunding 50% of the total amounts paid, or else applying 90% of the total paid toward any future P-POD event (with remainders going to the P-POD Scholarship Fund).

A cancellation for any other reason, requested 8 days or less prior to the conference you registered for, will allow you this option:
• applying toward any other P-POD event, 1/3rd of all payments we received, with the remainder going to the P-POD Scholarship Fund.
