Administrative and Cancellation Policies 

NIRI membership is in the name of the individual, not the employer organization; member rates for events and other benefits apply only to the individual member, not all members of an organization. Registrations are nontransferable between events. Badge sharing, splitting, or duplicating is strictly prohibited. Badge reprints will not be allowed.

Registrations will be reviewed to ensure compliance with qualifications related to the registration fee categories. Registrations may be cancelled with full refund should the registration not comply. In such cases, registrants will retain the opportunity to register at the correct fee level.

All cancellation and refund requests must be submitted in writing via email to Cancellation requests received up to one month before the event (on or before May 2, 2019) will be refunded in full, less a $150 processing fee. No refunds will be given for cancellation requests received within 30 days of the event (on or after May 3, 2019), including no-shows. All refunds will be processed within one month of confirmation and in the same manner as original payment.

Substitutions requests must be made in writing and will be accepted up to one week before the event. Please note that additional registration fees may apply to a substitute in a different registration category.

Registration and attendance at NIRI meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to NIRI’s use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, video recordings and electronic reproductions of such events and activities by NIRI.

The views expressed in presentations made at the NIRI Annual Conference or other NIRI events are those of the speaker and not, necessarily, of NIRI. Presentations at NIRI events, or the presence of service providers at NIRI events, does not constitute an endorsement of a service provider or speaker's views, products or services.
