All cancellations must be made in writing via email to professionaldevelopment@rpgroup.org. Non-payment will not result in automatic conference registration cancellation. Since attendees are permitted to register without payment, we have no way of determining cancellation unless specifically informed in writing. 

Cancellation requests received by March 27, 2024, will be refunded in full, minus a $75 administrative fee. There will be no refunds for cancellations received after March 27, 2024.

If you selected "Pay by Check" and your check has not been received by your cancellation date, you will be billed for the cancellation fee for cancellations made by March 27 or for the full amount of your registration for cancellations made after March 27. Note: The administrative fee includes transaction fees assessed by our online registration provider.

If you have registration or payment questions, please contact Lila Tavelli at professionaldevelopment@rpgroup.org.

Each year, our post-conference workshops are held on the final day of the event for an additional fee. If you would like to add a post-conference workshop to your main conference registration, you will have the opportunity to do so later in the registration form. If you would like to attend a post-conference workshop ONLY, please select the “Post-Conference Workshop Only” option under the Registration Type menu.

Workshops last three hours and include a continental breakfast. Participants may choose one workshop. Find details about each workshop on the Post-Conference Workshop page.

The RP Group is committed to protecting the health and safety of all who participate in RP Conference 2024. We will continue to monitor local (county), state, federal, and hotel requirements and will provide updates as necessary.

Vaccinations are not required to attend the conference. We encourage all attendees to test prior to traveling to the conference and to bring an extra COVID-19 antigen test with them in the event they begin to feel unwell during the conference.

At this time, the hotel does not require masking on the premises. Unless the hotel’s or local policies change, attendees will not be required to wear masks to participate in the conference, but we welcome and support anyone who chooses to wear a mask.
