In the instance that the ASCD 2021 physical event cannot proceed or a registered delegate can not attend due to the ongoing COVID19 situation (i.e. border closures or compulsory isolation), all registrations will be transferred to virtual tickets. No administration fee will apply in such a case, and you will be refunded the difference in registration fees. You will be allocated the equivalent virtual registration based on the date you registered. I.e. If you registered to attend in-person at the early bird rate, you will be allocated an early bird virtual registration.

In the event of the Symposium being cancelled, no refunds will be issued. All available funds will be credited towards a future symposium/s held by the ASCD.
