What items are included in my meeting registration costs?

Our hotel contracts are structured for the Society to pay one single master contract bill for all expenses associated with the event.  Attendee costs are calculated on the guest room charge, applicable taxes charged by the hotel, all meals for the duration of the conference, refreshment breaks and receptions.  As a matter of PRS policy, there are no a la carte registration packages, and where attendees opt out of events, refunds will not be issued for unattended activities or meals. 

How do I cancel my meeting registration?

All cancelation requests must be submitted via email directly to the PRS offices.  ( Cancelations requested by voicemail will not be accepted.
