Cancellation Policy for NCECA 2012 Collectors Tour
Because the NCECA’s 2012 Collectors Tour was designed with exclusive experiences and held to a very limited capacity NCECA respectfully requests that the following cancellation policy be honored for s NCECA’s 2012 Collectors tour:
- Cancellation requests received by midnight EST, March 7 will be assessed a $40 processing fee and consideration of the $250 tax-deductible donation to NCECA that was built into the registration fee. Those requesting a refund if paid in full will receive $1210. ($1500-$290= $1210)
- Cancellation requests received after midnight, EST on March 7, and before midnight, EST March 20 will be assessed a $250 fee plus a $250 tax-deductible donation to NCECA.
Those requesting a refund if paid in full will receive $1000. ($1500-$500= $1000)
- Cancellation requests after March 20 will be non-refundable.
Retention of fees or portions of fees are necessary because NCECA stopped accepting reservations after the Collectors’ Tour reached booking capacity and certain experiences required NCECA to make financial commitments to vendors.
The 2008 NCECA Conference was the first I have attended. I am in awe of how SO MANY people in Pittsburgh and nation wide came together to make the conference such a success. I am proud to have recently joined NCECA.
