Cancellation Policy

RLF Cancellation Policy:

If cancellation is necessary, notification must be sent to Molly Mahoney RLF Program Manager (mmahoney@simnet.org) at least 30 days prior to the start of the Forum to receive a refund. Refund will be the total cost of the program minus the cost of the Amazon gift code that was issued upon registration.

If notification is not received as noted above, but the program has not started yet, the following options are available:

  • Send another individual from the company. In this case, we ask that the original registrant transfer the books or Amazon gift code to the new individual. If a new Amazon gift code is needed the company will be appropriately invoiced.
  • Hold the registration fee until the subsequent year and register an individual in the same or any other Forum. In this case, a new gift code will be issued upon registration the subsequent year and the company will be invoiced for the Amazon gift code.
  • Should an issue occur in session 1 or 2 that causes an inability for the registrant to attend further, the registration fee will automatically be applied to the following year. If a new Amazon gift code is needed the company will be appropriately invoiced.  A $500 transfer fee will be applied to any decision that occurs between session two and three.

If there is an inability to complete the program at or after session three, registration fees will be forfeited.

Any other instance not clearly specified above must be reviewed by the RLF Directors.
