Registration of Delegates
Each organization must be registered for the conference in order for a member of that organization to serve as a delegate. Registered delegates must complete and sign the credential form at the registration desk in order to receive delegate credentials. Registered members representing an organization will not be allowed to vote at the conference if the organization has not paid its annual membership dues.
All attendees must be registered in order to participate in conference activities. Badges and/or tickets will be required for admittance to all activities.
Early-bird registrations will be accepted through Dec. 31, 2017. Registrations received after Dec. 31, 2017, must pay the general registration fee. Registrations received after the Dec. 31, 2017, deadline unaccompanied by the general registration fee, will be returned to the sender.
UNCF understands that situations may arise that require cancellation of registration. Cancellations are due in writing by Jan. 13, 2018, in order to be eligible for a refund. The conference will process a refund, minus a cancellation fee of $50, if received by the Jan. 13, 2018, deadline. NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROCESSED AFTER JAN. 13, 2018.
Because of the administrative costs of registration and preparation of materials for each participant, no refunds will be given to persons not attending the conference or those who fail to properly cancel their registration prior to Jan. 13, 2018.

Registrations related to the returned check will be cancelled if the replacement payment is not received within 15 business days from the date of the notice. The original check will be returned after the replacement payment is received and processed.
