May I Cancel?

Yes, you may cancel for a full refund up until a week before the event at which time we will have paid the hotel for your meal and seating costs which is most of the registration expense. You may wish to keep your registration as then you will automatically receive recordings of all the speakers and you will also have Access to the Leaders Community for a full year (new speakers monthly, articles, book of the month, mentoring access and more. If you still wish to cancel please start a chat.

Will Special Diet Meals be Available?

Yes, vegetarian/vegan meals will be available upon request (identify yourself to the hotel staff once seated).

May I Be a Sponsor or Speak?

Potentially yes, if your product or service adds value to the participants. Please see the Sponsorship page for more info. If you have a special story or topic that would inspire the audience please send it to for consideration

How Did You Find Me?

It is always from one of two sources. Either a past registrant suggested your name to be invited to this year's conference, or we researched your name, title and what you do on LinkedIn and thought you would be a good fit with the other attendees.

Are there Continuing Education Credit Hours (i.e. CEUs, CPEs, etc)?

Not automatically as credit approvals are state-by-state but you can manually submit the agenda in most states for credit. Also if you login you can print a completion certificate if needed for each speaker's presentation.

How Much is the Registration Fee to Attend?

Go the the Events page to view the registration fee.

Does the Location Ever Change after Registration?

Yes, on rare occasion the registration outgrows the hotel's available event room capacity where it makes sense to change to a hotel with a larger ballroom on that day. We encourage all registrants to check back on the site within 1-2 weeks of the event to verify the location for safety (you don't want to miss half the first speaker's message by the time you get to the right place).

When is the Next Meeting After This One?

Please see the Events page for a full list of monthly meetings in your chapter. Also keep in mind that when you register you will also receive benefits for a full year (live webinars with top leaders discussing what worked, videos of other Leaders from the association, articles monthly, book summary monthly, and access to the city's mentoring list, and much more all included). Many Leadership register even if they have a date conflict to be able to access these extended benefits throughout the year.
