Refund/Cancellation Policy:

All cancellations must be in writing to
Attendees Cancellation: Remember that this year’s conference offers in-person and virtual experiences. If you find that you are unable to travel to the in-person event, you can attend virtually.

If you decide to cancel your registration, a $100 administrative fee will be charged for conference cancellations received between August 15, 2021 and September 15, 2021 ($25.00 administrative fee for the preconference portion only). Requests for refunds after September 15th will be denied unless there are extenuating circumstances which prevent an attendee from finding another person to attend the conference in their place.  (An extenuating circumstance may include an unexpected death in the family or medical emergency).  Proof of the hardship will be required.  Changing workloads and/or staffing levels at your organization are not considered an extenuating circumstance for cancelling after the cut-off date.  These requests will be reviewed by members of the WI SHRM Executive Council, State Conference Co-Chairs and the Conference Liaison Director on a case-by-case basis.

Exhibitor Cancellation: A 50% cancellation fee will be charged for cancellations made by August 31, 2021. There will be no refunds or cancellations made after August 31, 2021.

We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 and potential impacts on our event in October. If circumstances arise and we find it necessary to cancel our event, we will refund 100% of registration fees paid by sponsors, exhibitors and attendees.
