IAMPETH 2020 & COVID-19

Now that Corona has, well, gone viral—many of you have questions regarding our upcoming conference. Here are some answers.

  1. Registration: Yes! Registration will go on as planned on Saturday, March 14 beginning at 11 am EDT.
  2. Cancellation of conference: In the event the conference must be cancelled due to restrictions on travel or mass gatherings, IAMPETH would retain your membership dues but refund 100% (less $10 PayPay fee) of registration and meal fees, regardless of when the cancellation occurs.
  3. Cancellations by individuals: If the conference goes on as planned, for individual cancellations please refer to our refund policy as published on page 35 of the Registration Information booklet. I think you will find it to be an equitable arrangement which should give you time to make your decision with minimal loss of funds.
  4. Hotel: The Grand Hyatt has a 72-hour cancellation policy, and the credit card used to reserve your room will not be charged unless you pass that deadline, at which point you would be charged for one night. However—and this is very important!---if you cancel your conference registration, please release your hotel reservation as well so another member may have access to a room at the conference rate.
  5. Travel: For those of you planning to fly, you may want to consider purchasing travel insurance for flight cancellation, looking closely at what contingencies are covered by various policies.

While we can’t know where things will stand a few months from now, we will be monitoring the situation and hoping for the best. In the meantime—whether or not you plan to attend the conference—please stay healthy and please stay in touch!
