Terms of Registration

Conference attendees will be required to attest that they have read and agree to the following terms during event registration.


Registration

The person completing registration must be an adult or legally emancipated minor. You will be asked to provide payment for your registration via credit/debit card, including registration fees, hotel accommodations, hosted meals, and Kids Camp.

Refund Policy

No refunds will be provided if you are unable to attend. All registrants will have access to the conference portal until September 30, 2022 to view session recordings and bonus content.

We are pleased to provide our in-person guests with a registration refund insurance policy. Inability to Attend Registration Insurance is included as part of your registration fees, and is underwritten by Lloyds of London. You will receive a 100% refund, if you are unable to attend 2022 SciFam for a reason outside of your control that is covered under the policy. This coverage starts on the date you pay for registration and ends on the first day of the conference. Learn more about what is covered under the policy.

 

Photography and Video Recording

 

This conference will be photographed, live streamed, and video recorded, and your image may be captured. Recordings will be made available to the community in various forums, including but not limited to website, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. Cure CMD, A Foundation Building Strength, and Team Titin may also use images for the purpose of marketing or public relations, however, the identities of those captured will not be shared without consent.

 

In-Person Attendee COVID Protocols

Everyone eligible for the COVID19 vaccine should remain up to date with recommended vaccinations to best protect against COVID19–associated hospitalizations and Emergency/Urgent Care visits.

For in-person attendees, we will follow up-to-date CDC guidelines for large group meetings to promote attendee health and safety for our vulnerable affected community. This will include, but may not be limited to the following protocols at the time of in-person attendee conference check-in:

 

  • Proof of full, up-to-date vaccination status, including booster(s), as defined by the CDC on June 1, 2022 for those eligible to receive the vaccination

  • Alternatively, for those recently recovered from COVID, proof of positive antibody testing dated no earlier June 2, 2022, accompanied by a physician's certification of full recovery from the recent COVID19 infection will be accepted

  • A photo ID matching the vaccination or positive antibody test record

  • If vaccinations have still not been approved for children ages 6 months - 4 years, or if there has been insufficient time for children to be fully vaccinated before June 30, additional safety measures may be implemented

  • These measures are subject to change based on the latest CDC guidance, and may include mask mandates (fully covering nose and mouth), symptom tracking, contact tracing, and onsite testing.


Those who are unable or unwilling to be vaccinated, or show proof of recent positive antibody testing and physician certification are cordially invited to register for virtual attendance. Nearly all sessions will be live streamed and recorded, with opportunities for remote attendees to ask questions and participate in discussions. We thank you for your understanding in our effort to keep everyone in the affected community healthy, and to minimize risk of exposure for our in-person attendees.

 
In-Person Attendee Hotel Accommodations

We have secured room blocks at two hotels for our guests. We are contractually obligated to fill these rooms, so we ask that you book your hotel stay during registration to take advantage of our group rates and proximity to the conference venue. Accessible rooms availability will be limited, and will be offered to those attending with affected adults and teens first.

Those wishing to extend their stay before or after the conference may request additional hotel nights, but availability is not guaranteed. Extended stay requests will be serviced on a first-come-first-serve basis. Learn more on the Registration Fees & Opt-Ins Page.
 

General Liability

Cure CMD, A Foundation Building Strength, and Team Titin bear no liability or responsibility for lost or stolen items, injury, or additional financial obligation as a result of any circumstance related to your conference participation.

 


We look forward to welcoming you to 2022 SciFam!
