Event Refund/Cancellation Policy

Registration Cancellation by Participant

There will be no refund for “no shows.”  If you need to cancel your registration for an event, and notify us within 2 or more days of the event, you will receive a full refund of your registration fee.  If you cancel with less than two days’ notice, a cancellation fee will be assessed that will be deducted from your refund to cover our advance commitment to onsite costs (food, materials).  The cancellation fee will be determined based on the event cost; please refer to event confirmation email to determine this fee for a specific event.  If you need to cancel, please contact us via the phone number or email address provided in the registration materials.

Event Cancellation by Center for Self-Sufficiency

The Center for Self-Sufficiency (CFSS) reserves the right to cancel events. If this occurs, the registrants will be offered a full refund using the same method by which the registration was paid (check or credit card).  Should circumstances arise that result in the postponement of an event, CFSS has the right to either issue a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at the new, future date.
