We recommend business casual attire for the conference, and casual attire for the dinners and parties on Wednesday and Thursday.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

We recognize there can be reservations in registering for an in-person event during uncertain times. That's why registrations cancelled more than 30 days prior to the event are eligible for a 100% refund of fees paid. Also, if the conference is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, registrants will receive a full refund.

If you are unable to attend the conference, you may transfer or cancel your registration by September 6, 2020 at 5 PM PT. Please email events@auditboard.com to get the process started. You will need to provide the following information:

  1. Registration confirmation # and email address of the current registration.

Hotel reservation cancellations and substitutions should be taken care of directly with the hotel. An individual’s deposit is refundable to that individual if the Resort receives notice of an individual’s cancellation at least (7) days prior to scheduled arrival.
