Registration Fee Policy
The registration fee includes access to the webinar for the live event, a recording of the webinar after the event, access to the webinar slides and other helpful references provided by the instructor(s), CEC for CFMs and certificate of attendance (when eligibility criteria is met). Access to these materials does not transfer copyright ownership of the materials to the registrant.
ASFPM webinars allow for individual registration, payment, and attendance only. Registration, access to webinar, materials, and fees apply only to the person under whose name it appears in the registration system. Only the named registrant may connect and participate in the webinar. Participants who allow others to use their ASFPM member preferred rate promotional code, webinar access, and/or name to register or participate in a webinar may not receive a certificate of attendance, will not receive a refund, and will not be allowed to register for future events. Should it be determined that a participant failed to comply with the CFM Code of Ethics they may be subject to further certification disciplinary review.

Rain Date Policy
Whenever possible, ASFPM will schedule a “rain date” for the cancelled webinar to be announced at the time of cancellation. In the event of a rain date, attendees will be given priority registration for the new event, and a deadline to reserve their seat. Any attendees who do not respond by the deadline will be issued a refund and their seat will be opened to other registrants. Attendees who reserve their seat for the rain date event will not receive a refund; their webinar fees will be applied to the new event date.
Webinar cancellations made at the request of the attendee cannot be applied to a future webinar event. Registrations may only be transferred to another attendee when original registrant provides proper notice per ASFPM Substitution Policy and upon payment of any applicable fees as outlined in the policy. It is the attendee’s responsibility to notify ASFPM according to the Substitution Policy timeline, identify a substitute candidate, and arrange for any applicable payment transactions related to the transfer.
Should ASFPM or the presenter cancel a webinar for any reason, full refunds will be issued within 1 month of the cancellation date to all registrants who were registered and paid at the time of the cancellation. No refund will be issued to registrants where no fee was paid. ASFPM will issue refunds in the manner in which the original fee was paid. ASFPM is not responsible for refund delays caused by PayPal, the registrant’s financial institution and/or postal mail.
With the exception of an ASFPM cancelled event or Rain Date Policy, no refunds will be issued. No refund will be provided for registrant no shows. If a technical failure at the attendee’s home or workplace prevents access to the live webinar, the attendee will not be given a refund. It is the responsibility of the attendee to confirm system requirements and test their computers prior to the start of the webinar. Technical specifications will be provided to registrants in their webinar registration confirmation email. If you are unable to log in to a webinar due to technical issues, please contact ASFPM at 608-828-3000 for assistance. If we are unable to help you, we may apply your registration fee toward a future webinar event or provide a one-time partial or full refund at our discretion.
