Registration Policies

Unpaid registrations without a purchase order will be canceled after 30 days. If you do not receive a confirmation within three weeks after sending full payment or purchase order, call (781) 449-4010 ext.101 or ext. 102.

Substitutions And Cancellations:

Substitutions are permissible up to one week before a summer insittute and two days before an online seminar , but you must notify Public Information Resources, Inc. ("PIRI") in writing by email to [email protected].

Cancellations must be requested no later than June 30, 2020 for the Summer Institutes.  Because of limited space, after June 30, cancellations are only accepted if a substitute can be found.

Because cancellations incur substantial administrative costs, we regret that it is necessary to charge a cancellation fee.
For the Summer Institutes, the cancellation fee is $175 prior to June 30, 2020.  After June 30, cancellations are only accepted if a substitute can be found at which point a cancellation fee of $175 will be charged. All purchase orders must be paid by June 30, 2020. If a summer institute does not reach a minimum attendance of 12 by June 30, PIRI can cancel the institute and will only be responsible for a refund of registration fees.

No cancellations are permitted for online seminars but with prior notice, you can be switched to a future online seminar.

Cancellations must be sent in writing to PIRI at 35 Highland Circle, First Floor, Needham, MA 02494-3099 or faxed to PIRI at 781-449-4024.
