Meeting Policies

Badge Information and Mailing Address
Badges are issued based upon the information included on the registration form. Indicate your name as you would like it to appear on your badge. Include CNM, CM, SNM, or other certifications as appropriate. Non-midwives should indicate highest degree or title. Designate the school, hospital, service, organization, or other place of employment as you want it to appear on your badge. If professional title and/or organization are left blank, no designations will appear. Correspondence will be sent to the e-mail address you provide on the registration form.

Classification and Fees
Find your classification and input corresponding code and registration fee on the registration form. Current paid members of the American College of Nurse-Midwives may register under active member, active supporting, or student/associate member. All other registrants must choose between non-member or non-member student. Students, both ACNM members and non-members, qualify for reduced rates only if enrolled as a student in an ACME accredited midwifery program. Anyone may register at the one-day registration rate. If you are planning to attend a business meeting only, you may register on-site with a current membership card and photo identification. Early bird registration, which must be received by April 9, 2012, offers the best savings. If you miss this deadline, you can still qualify for advance registration if your form is received by May 28, 2012. After May 28, you may still be able to use the online system to register, 2012 but you must pay the on-site fee.

Payment
Checks (made payable to ACNM), VISA, MasterCard and Discover are acceptable forms of payment. Full payment must be received in order for registration to be processed. Registration is guaranteed only after VISA/MasterCard/Discover has been approved or your check has cleared. If your credit card is declined or your check is returned, ACNM reserves the right to cancel registration if an alternate approved payment is not supplied.

Please be advised that ACNM is not responsible for checks or letters lost or delayed in the mail, or fax transmittals that are not received and/or are illegible. Note: If you fax your registration, do not also mail the registration form. Doing so may result in duplicate charges to your credit card.

Registrants requiring authorization from the government or other agencies to attend the Annual Meeting may submit copies of approved purchase orders, vouchers, or other official documents with the registration form and register at the discounted rates.

Meeting Cancellation
All cancellation notices must be submitted in writing. Registrants may expect to receive refunds four to six weeks after the conclusion of the Annual Meeting. Substitutions are permitted; however, notification must be received in writing. Notification of substitution can be faxed to (240) 485-1818 or mailed to the ACNM National Office address.

A $50 cancellation fee will be assessed for all cancellations received on or before Monday, April 9. Between Tuesday, April 10 and Monday, May 28, a fee of 50% of the registration fee will be assessed. After May 28, cancellations due to extenuating circumstances (ie, death, accident, illness) must be submitted in writing, must include appropriate verification.

Workshops
Workshops scheduled for Sunday, June 3 and Thursday, June 7, require additional fees (unless otherwise indicated), pre-registration, and prepayment. Because ACNM makes financial obligations based on the number of tickets sold, we cannot refund tickets unless the event is cancelled. Workshops are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and tickets are required for admittance. You may sell or give your ticket to another individual. In the event of a workshop cancellation, ACNM will reassign you to another workshop of your choice at an equal value or issue a refund. All refunds will be processed no later than six weeks after the conclusion of the Annual Meeting.

For attendee cancellations, a cancellation fee of 25% of the workshop fee will be assessed for cancellations received on or before April 9, 2012. Between Tuesday, April 10 and Monday, May 28, a fee of 50% of the workshop fee will be assessed. No refunds for workshop cancellations will be granted, for any reason, to registrants canceling after May 28.
