Conference Attendance FAQ

Can I cancel my registration?

You can cancel your registration, however the registration fee is not refundable. You can transfer your registration to someone else to attend in your place with no problem.

NJEPA is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization and the registration fees go to offset only a small portion of the cost of bringing the conference to you. If someone will be attending in your place, please log back into your registration utilizing the instructions in your confirmation e-mail to make the change. Or you can instruct the person attending in your place to visit the On-Site Registration booth when they arrive and we can make the change at that time.
