Payment & Refund Policy

In 2019, to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and YEAR OF THE MEMBER, all professional development programs are FREE for members! Not-yet-members pay $25. To join AFP, click here.

The AFPNEO Chapter accepts credit card, check, and cash payments, and you may pay at the meeting. However, reservations are required, so we may ensure enough food is ordered. Late registrants will be charged an additional $5.00 late fee to cover vendor charges.

Because we have to pay for the food we order, if you make a reservation, you are responsible for the fee even if you do not attend. Cancellations must be received by the posted reservation deadline to be eligible for a refund or non-payment.
