Policies

  1. The 2020 NIPPC Annual Meeting is being held as a virtual event on the mornings (Pacific time) of September 14 & 15, 2020.

  2. All attendees are invited to register via our online registration site, so we have a complete record of who will be attending.  This includes speakers and sponsors and any participant who intends to join us for one day of the event or even selected sessions.  Anyone who is not registered will not be able to receive the login details to the webinar.

  3. Attendees must pay a $250 fee per person to attend.  Attendees will be sent a link to log on to the webinar.  NIPPC reserves the right to charge any participant who obtains the login without permission from NIPPC.

  4. Sponsors who have helped underwrite the program will be given an attendee allocation in line with their support.

  5. Under special circumstances NIPPC will give permission to certain guests to attend without payment.  This includes our invited speakers.

  6. No reduction in the fee will be given for partial attendance.

  7. While in the conference sessions, NIPPC requests that attendees stay on mute and off camera unless speaking.  NIPPC staff reserve the right to mute any attendee who is disturbing the program.  Initial questions will be handled in writing but follow-up discussion will be live.  We encourage attendees to engage in this part of the program.

  8. NIPPC’s networking ‘brown bag lunch’ will be handled as separate small chat rooms, which will rotate every 15 minutes, for a 45-minute period.  Attendees will be allocated randomly and rotated, so small groups can interact with each other and the speakers attending this part of the program. 

  9. If you find you are unable to attend you can request a refund by emailing Fibi Duke at  fduke@nippc.org.  Refunds will only be processed up until a week before the event.  No refunds can be given after September 7th, 2020.

  10. The success of NIPPC’s meeting depends on the cooperation of all attendees to help us run ‘virtual Alderbrook’ smoothly. NIPPC reserves the right to block anyone from the conference who does not follow our policies or who creates an ongoing disturbance during our event.
