Participants Responsibilty

Once registered for a workshop, event or course, full participation is expected. Maximum benefit to the participant can only be obtained when the sessions(s) are attended in full. In addition, when participants cancel at the last moment or choose not to attend it impacts other professionals, presenters, IU staff and related costs that can not be recouped.
