The Word also strongly encourages all attendees to get the COVID-19 booster shot.

 

If you would like to claim an exemption for a sincerely held religious belief or for a medical exemption, please fill out the appropriate form. These are the same forms you will be asked to provide when entering any city-owned venue in Denver, Colorado. In addition to a correctly filled-out form, you will need to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR diagnostic test 48 hours prior to your arrival at the conference.

refund policy for conference

[margins.] advises attendees to wait until they are certain of their in-person attendance to purchase registration, as purchases are nonrefundable. If you purchase an in-person registration and later decide that you will not be attending the in-person conference due to concern over COVID-19, you will remain registered for virtual attendance, and we can provide a credit for 2024 conference registration purchases equal to the difference between your in-person registration and a virtual registration. The deadline to request such a credit is August 1, 2022. 

 

If you do not feel well or are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you do not attend. If this applies to you, please let us know and we can provide a credit for the 2024 conference registration purchases equal to the difference between your in-person registration and a virtual registration. We will provide a credit for the full purchase amount toward the 2024 conference upon receipt of a note from a medical professional for any illness that prevents a registrant from participating in the conference. 

 

All other registration purchases are nonrefundable.
