Education Policy

The chapter offers free and low cost education as part of your membership.

Paid classes – the chapter makes every effort to offer current and quality education at a price point designed to meet the expenses associated with the class.

Cancellation Policy for Paid Single Classes
Should you register for a AMTA CT Chapter education workshop and are unable to attend, you MUST cancel your registration no later than 10 days prior to the day of the class for a full refund. If you should cancel less than 10 days before the workshop you will be subject to losing one half the total cost of the workshop. Those registrants who fail to cancel and do not attend the workshop will forfeit the full amount of registration.

Cancellation Policy for Connecticut Conference
A refund of 80% of registration fees is given if we receive an emailed (ConferenceAMTACT@gmail.com or RegistrarAMTACT@gmail.com) or written request (Mindy Michaud, 17 Mallard Cove, East Hampton, CT 06424) by February 28, 2019.  A 50% refund of registration fees is given if we receive the request by March 17, 2019.  All other requests will be reviewed by the CT Board at the next CT Board meeting

Free classes – We have had a large number of no show registrants for our free January and October education.   The chapter does have a policy regarding free education, which is enforced.  The policy was instituted because of no shows.  Often registration is full for these classes and we do not accept waiting lists.  It is not fair to other chapter members if a chair in a class is taken by someone who does not show up, as others would have been able to take that spot.  Please see the policy below.

Education Policy for FREE Classes
Should you register for a Free AMTA CT Chapter education workshop and be unable to attend, you MUST cancel your registration no later than 72 hours prior to the start of the class. Those registrants who fail to cancel and do not attend the workshop will be prohibited from attending any Free AMTA CT Chapter education workshops for 12 months.
