Registration Policy

By registering for The Montessori Event 2019, you acknowledge the following:

Payment Policy: All balances must be paid in full prior to attending the conference. Cash or credit card payments may be made onsite at the registration desk, prior to collecting your conference badge. Checks for group registrations will not be accepted onsite and must be sent to the AMS office six weeks (Feb. 7, 2019) prior to the conference.

Cancellation Policy: Requests for refunds must be made in writing and emailed to AMS no later than March 1, 2019. Refunds will be disbursed within 30 days after the conference. For each refunded registration, a $50 cancellation fee will be debited from the refund.

Access to Conference Events: All attendees must be at least 18 years of age to register for The Montessori Event. All registrants will receive a name badge which must be worn for entry into all conference events. This includes workshops, keynote addresses, networking sessions, receptions, and the exhibit hall. No person under age 18, including infants and toddlers either handheld or in carriers, will be permitted in the exhibit hall or in conference sessions (unless part of the program). This policy is in effect to address safety concerns as well as to ensure the professional nature of the event. As sessions are frequently at capacity, this helps ensure that paid attendees have access to event content to the fullest extent possible.

Photo & Recording Release: Attendees acknowledge that by attending any part of The Montessori Event they are agreeing that their picture/likeness may be taken/recorded and they release permission for that picture/likeness to be used by the American Montessori Society (AMS). They acknowledge that AMS may use said picture in print media or other forms of visual communication as it sees fit. They attest that they are not entitled to any form of monetary/financial compensation for the use of their likeness, have not been promised such, and recognize AMS need not provide compensation for this use or any other type of use of their picture/likeness.
