*PLEASE NOTE the below change to our standard attendee cancellation policy and review this prior to submitting your registration. This information will also be found in your confirmation email message.

ACCIS's event cancellation policy does NOT apply to this tour as we have funds committed to BCCIE at the point of registration. PARTIAL REFUNDS, minus committed fees, may be requested prior to April 13, 2018 (one month before tour) and will depend upon our ability to fill the participant's spot on the tour. Requests must be received in writing to Emmi Harward on or before this date. After April 13, 2018, ACCIS and BCCIE are liable for all tour fees for each registered attendee; therefore, regardless of the reason for cancellation, we are unable to return any funds to attendees unable to join. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AFTER APRIL 13, 2018.

Please note that your registration is non-transferable. Due to the need to purchase air travel, any name changes made on or before April 13, 2018 will incur a Name Change Fee of CAD $45.00 per name change. NO NAME CHANGES WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THIS DATE. For any questions about registration, please email eharward@accisnet.org.
