Once Attendee registers for the Seminar, we make extensive arrangements and investments while anticipating their tuition and attendance, and, in the case of their cancellation, we incur significant administration hassles, expenses, and loss of business. Given this fact, we do not accept cancellations or issue refunds beginning 10 days after Attendee has registered for the Workshop. If Attendees cancel within 10 days of registering they will receive a full refund, but any Attendee seeking to cancel their registration after 10 days will not, under any circumstances, receive a refund. Again, this is due to the extremely limited seating for an event of this nature. If you are unsure of whether or not you can attend the event, do not register. If for whatever reason you are unable to attend the event after you have registered and after 10 days have passed since registering, we will happily transfer your ticket to someone else at our sole discretion.


Please read our entire event policy at http://www.helpgcc.org/eventpolicy.

* Schedule of events and workshop topics are subject to change without notice.
* No shows will not receive a refund for the event registration and will forfeit their T-Shirt, Workbook, and any other items distributed during the event.
