Fees and Policies
Share |

In order to better serve our members, it is a goal of the NOVA SHRM chapter to keep incurred costs to a minimum. Because many of the costs associated with our program events are based upon accurate attendance projections, all attendees are strongly encouraged to register in advance. 

Registration Policy

Registrations received later than 4 business days prior to the event and walk-in attendees will be assessed a late registration fee of $10.00 in addition to the regular registration rates. For example an event hosted on Tuesday would require the attendee to register before midnight on the Wednesday prior to the meeting to avoid the late registration fee.

Unless otherwise noted, registration rates are as follows: ***

  • AM Breakfast Chapter Meeting: $35 member, $50 non-member
  • PM Dinner Chapter Meeting: $45 member, $60 non-member
  • Professional Development Seminars: $125 members, $175 non-member
  • Special Interest Groups (SIG): $0 Member, $15 non-member
  • HR Executive Series, End of the Year Celebration and other special events: $45 member, $60 non-member.

Although on-line payment at time of registration is strongly encouraged, registrants may pay registration fees on-line at the time of registration, via mail, or upon check-in at the event.


Late Registration/Walk-Ins

Registrations received later than 4 business days** prior to the event and walk-in attendees will be assessed a late registration fee*** of $10.00 in addition to the regular registration rates.

Note that late registrants and walk-ins will also be required to provide their information at the event check-in table and will not have a pre-printed name tag.


Cancellation Policy

Cancellations received prior to 2 calendar weeks before the scheduled event date will be fully refunded. Cancellations received between 1-2 calendar weeks prior to the scheduled event will receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received less than 1 calendar week prior to the event. No-shows will be billed at the full amount.

Cancellation and refund requests must be made in writing containing the following information:

  • Full name
  • Home and email address
  • Name/date of program


* Policies effective as of January 1, 2011.
** Does not include holidays and/or weekends.
*** Registration rates and fees are subject to change.


Inclement Weather

Due to inclement weather, there may be times when our NOVA SHRM events will be rescheduled. There are no reimbursements for rescheduled events. When events are cancelled due to inclement weather, a full-reimbursement will be issued for all attendees. If you are unable to attend and event that has been rescheduled, you are able to pass on the registration ticket to another individual.


Sponsors & Speakers

A list of attendees from the program will be provided to your organization for these members who have agreed to be contacted by you one time in the future.  As a speaker or sponsor, you are only permitted to send ONE email to the attendees.  You can ask the attendees in that email if they want to receive further emails or communications from you.  Only if they respond to the email that they want further communications from you, can you then send further emails to them.   Thus by agreeing to be a speaker or sponsor, you agree not to add any attendees to any distribution list for your company, or email them beyond the first initial email, unless the attendee responds by email and agrees to further communications and/or being added to a distribution list, or they give you a business card or written request at the meeting and ask for further communications. You agree to retain for 6 months the records of any such emails or requests, and if asked, to make them available to NOVA SHRM.
