Registration and attendance at or participation in ASCD meetings, conferences, institutes, and other activities constitutes agreement by the registrant to ASCD's use and distribution of the registrant’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, websites, electronic reproductions, and audiotapes of such events and activities. If you have questions about our policy, please email our Legal Department.

In an effort to enhance security, ASCD requires conference and pre-conference attendees to wear their event name badge at all times during event hours. Attendees can pick up their badges in the registration area. Badges must be worn at in-person events and certain related services such as exhibit shows and shuttle buses. Your badge not only indicates that you are registered for the event, but it is also a courtesy to other registrants.
Check the registration page for the event for information about express check-in and satellite pick-up options for attendee badges.
ASCD reserves the right to cancel events because of low registration or in the case of a catastrophic occurrence due to a force majeure. In the unlikely event of a cancellation, all registrants will be notified to have the option of another event or receive full refunds.
If you are unable to attend an event for which you have registered, contact ASCD by email or regular mail (ASCD, PO Box 826887, Philadelphia, PA 19182-6887), no later than 14 calendar days before the start of the event. You may send a nonregistered person in your place, request a Gift Certificate for ASCD products or future ASCD events, or a refund.
Processing Fees: ASCD charges fees for processing event refunds. Processing fees are deducted from the registration refund amount.
After the 14-day time frame you are ineligible for a refund, but you may send a nonregistered person in your place, with registration confirmation or written authorization from you.
All conference sessions require a volunteer. Attendees who volunteer will receive a $10 ASCD gift certificate for every session hosted. Gift certificates can be used toward any ASCD program, product, or service within one year. ASCD does not require volunteers at institutes or pre-conference institutes. When completing your online or paper registration for the conference, please indicate that you would like to volunteer. You will receive an email notification closer to the event with online session selection information. You must be a registered attendee to volunteer. Questions? Please email us.
A Certificate of Attendance will be emailed to all conference participants about one week after the event. Only pre-conference institute participants will receive 5.5 clock hours on their certificate. And as an ASCD professional development program participant, you may qualify for academic credit.
ASCD strives to exceed your expectations for high-quality products and services. If within 14 calendar days after the event you feel that we have fallen short of this goal, we will give you a gift certificate that you can use toward the purchase of any ASCD products or professional development events within the next year.
ASCD has a strong commitment to high standards of scholarship and professional development. Commercial solicitation is entirely prohibited at events unless otherwise stated on our website. Please immediately report any violations to ASCD staff.
As a registered attendee, you can download any the presentation materials from the event. Registered participants will receive a notification about presentation materials via email approximately two weeks prior to the event.
Once you receive information on how to download presentation materials, you may access them by visiting the appropriate downloads page for the event and following the instructions.
Meeting rooms will have wireless access and limited electrical outlets. We encourage you to download the materials to your laptop or print copies and bring them with you to the sessions. There will be charging stations throughout the common areas, but please make sure your laptop is charged each morning.
iPad® and iPhone® users may need a special app to view the presentation materials or take notes. Several apps are available for interactive PDF usage, but they may require a purchase fee.
Presentation materials are intended for the registrant's personal use only. Further reproduction and dissemination, in whole or part, requires the permission of the various owners as credited within the presentation materials. ASCD publications present a variety of views. The views expressed or implied in the presentation materials are not necessarily official positions of ASCD.
