Membership dues are non-refundable upon activation of your membership and are non-transferable.
Products purchased in the AMWA store cannot be returned once they are opened. Products may be returned undamaged, in the original packaging within 60 days of purchase.

Event registrations are subject to AMWA's conference cancellation policy. Conference cancellation requests must be received in writing no less than 3 weeks prior to the scheduled event.

No refunds will be distributed for cancellation requests made within 3 weeks of the scheduled event.
Credit workshop registrations must be cancelled in writing 3 weeks prior to the event in order to be eligible for refund. Credit workshop cancellations are subject to a $50 cancellation fee for each cancelled workshop.

If a conference workshop is cancelled by AMWA, every effort will be made to notify registrants at least 14 days before the day of the course, and fees will be refunded.
