In case you're wondering.... look here.
Meeting Registration Refund
For Divisional meetings, attendees are able to register in advance or register on-site. The Pacific and Eastern Divisions have adopted a “no refund” policy for registrations. It should be noted that if a person is unsure if he is able to attend a meeting, he should wait to register on-site thereby eliminating the problem of having paid for registration and being unable to attend. The Central Division Secretary-Treasurer has the discretion to refund advance registration for a meeting to members who are prevented from attending by emergency circumstances.
