Continuing Education Hours

You can earn Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) for your Conference attendance by attending sessions that are designed as educational. A documentation form will be included in the registration packet you receive when you check in at ISM Registration.

Session Selection and Seating

Your session selections help us assign meeting room space for each educational session. This allows us to project which sessions are in demand, but it does not guarantee your seating. If you change your mind, you may attend a different session than the one you signed up for on your registration form. Session seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, unless otherwise noted.

Special Needs

If you have special dietary needs or if you require any special services or auxiliary aids in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, please be sure to check the appropriate line on the Conference registration form. An ISM representative will contact you to confirm your special needs.

Tax Deduction

The Internal Revenue Service may permit an income tax deduction to U.S. residents for expenses (including registration fees, travel costs, meals and lodging) incurred in pursuit of continuing professional education. Consult your tax adviser for details.

Photo/Audio/Video Release

From time to time, ISM uses photos and/or audio/video of participants in public Conference spaces in our promotional and educational materials. By virtue of your attendance, you agree to the use of your likeness in such materials, including print and/or electronic media without further notification or authorization.

ISM grants media credentials to working journalists whose primary roles are editorial in nature. Participation in media interviews with credentialed individuals representing ISM, industry, trade or business media is voluntary. Media representatives must secure a written photo/audio/video release from each interviewee. Interviews must be conducted in media-designated areas or public spaces that do not interfere with the Conference experience of any other attendee, presenter, exhibitor, sponsor, volunteer or ISM employee.

No refunds are given once the program has begun. Registrants who fail to attend the program are not entitled to a refund. ISM must be contacted within 30 days of the program completion in order for a refund to be considered. ISM reserves the right to substitute speakers. If the program is not held for any reason, ISM's liability is limited to the program fee. Program subject to change. Check your confirmation letter for schedule verification.
