We recognise that emergencies and exegencies can arise, and in the spirit of transparency have set forth this policy for those members who may wish to request reimbursement of some/all of the amount paid towards conference fees. Because many expenses related to our events must be paid in advance and can be non-refundable, we have to be judicious in affording reimbursements when these situations do arise. If you feel that you have a special case please do not hesitate to contact the society secretary via email at the soonest
- Regarding registrations for our annual conference, a full refund will only be issued when notice is provided more than four weeks before the conference date in writing. In cases of medical emergency, refunds may be issued at the discretion of the society. If notification is received between 2-4 weeks before the event, we will refund 50% of conference fees paid, and if notification is received between 1-2 weeks before the conference, we will refund 25% of conference fees paid. We cannot issue refunds for cancellations that are beyond this period.
- For changes to registration, the SSCE will refund the difference following the same rules specified above.
- The SSCE cannot provide any refunds of membership dues paid.
