4. What is the cancellation policy?
If you have registered for an event and can no longer attend, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours before the event. We are often limited on space and try our best to keep a waitlist of interested registrants. Receiving a cancellation notification at least 24 hours prior to the event gives us the opportunity to contact the next person on the waitlist. All payments are non-refundable.
5. Are payments refundable?
Registration fees and membership dues are non-refundable. ASFW’s programs are funded solely through registration fees and membership dues, so it is imperative to the organization to receive payments in a timely manner. All payments must be received prior to the start of the specified event. ASFW is also a 100% volunteer-run organization, so there is limited administrative capacity to accommodate refunds except under extreme extenuating circumstances.
6. Who is eligible to participate in ASFW events?
All faculty and staff women and men at The Ohio State University. Women and men from all position levels, including part-time or full-time, are welcome to attend any of the events. Only women are eligible to become members of the Association of Staff and Faculty Women.
