*Announcement Regarding Covid-19
As you know, there are many decisions that go into ensuring the Banff School is a success for our delegates, faculty, and sponsors. Because the COVID pandemic is still with us, we have been unable to move forward with the planning details, and therefore the Executive Committee has made the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Advocis Banff School. There are many challenges, unknowns, and issues that we had to take into consideration including AB Health Services guidelines (in terms social distancing and group size), the Banff Center and Banff National Park rules. This decision was a tough call again, and unfortunately out of our control.
If you left your 2020 registration fee on file, you have two options:
- Leave your money on file for 2022: By leaving your money on file for the 2022 Advocis Banff School, you will guarantee a spot and you will benefit from locking in the old pricing. Due to the uncertainty of the situation, we are unable to guarantee the number of spots for 2022 and the possible increase in fees that could result from changes to our venue, group size, etc.
- Request a Refund: By obtaining a refund for your 2020 Banff School fee, we cannot guarantee you a spot for 2022 or hold the 2020 pricing (there could potentially be an increase in our pricing). If you paid by credit card, your refund will be processed using the same method of payment. The $50 deposit you paid will be refunded by Banff School, and the balance by National. If you paid using the monthly payment plan, a cheque will be issued and mailed to you.
Please email the attached decision form to Brenda Dreissigacker at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 15th, 2021.
If you request a refund, it will be processed in late March, early April. If we have not received a response by the deadline, your registration will be moved to 2022 and if a refund is requested after the March 15th deadline, a cancellation fee of $50 will apply.
We are extremely disappointed that we had make this decision and will continue to plan for 2022 to ensure the school will be an outstanding experience for all. We thank you for your patience and welcome any questions or comments you might have.
