Registration and Cancellation Information:
Conference registration will be open between the dates of Monday, August 2 and Thursday, October 7, two weeks prior to the start of the conference. Those wishing to register after October 7 will need to do so on-site at an additional fee and on a space-available basis.
If you are unable to attend, we encourage you to send a substitute. If you cannot send a substitute, LOC will refund 100% of your registration fee, less a $75 cancellation fee if written notice is received between August 2 - September 2, 2021; the cancellation fee will increase to $150 if written cancellation is received between September 3 - September 30, 2021. If your registration was paid, you will receive a refund, less the cancellation fee. If your registration is unpaid, you will be billed for the appropriate cancellation fee. Refunds cannot be issued after September 30, 2021. If your registration was not paid and you cancel after September 30, 2021, you will be billed for the full amount of the registration. Cancellations are not accepted by phone. Please send cancellations and substitution notices to [email protected]. For the full cancellation policy CLICK HERE.
Our system is set to allow some types of registration changes to be made by individuals prior to September 30. You may do so by accessing the event registration page and logging into the system. Allowable changes include additions or deletions of free events and additions only of paid events. Deletion of paid events through the online system will not issue a refund or lower the amount due appropriately. Any changes which reduce conference fees must be done through the LOC team by emailing [email protected].
The registration fee includes all break-out sessions, Thursday's networking reception and Friday and Saturday conference meals for registered attendees (except for Friday Awards Dinner). Spouses and guests who wish to attend the conference sessions and/or additional meals must register as a guest.
**Due to space limitations for some events, RSVPs for meals are required this year.**
Please be sure to select the meal options that you wish to attend to reserve your space. Kindly update your registration should your plans change so that we may offer that space to another registrant.
Hotel reservations are not included in the cost of conference registration and must be made separately from this registration system. Once your registration is complete you will receive an email confirmation with a unique reservation code, as well as further instructions on how to reserve your room. (PLEASE NOTE: this email confirmation with the reservation code will be sent to the email address of the person who is being registered, if you are registering on behalf of another person(s) please contact them to get this code.) You can send the email confirmation to additional recipients. At the bottom of the Order Confirmation page, you will see the option to send the confirmation email to another person.
