2022 Annual Meeting Live+
We’re committed to the safety and well-being of all our in-person 2022 Annual Meeting Live+ (Annual Meeting) registrants. As such, we continue to closely monitor the evolution of the pandemic and the path of vaccination globally.
You’re highly encouraged to monitor travel advisories, restrictions, and quarantine measures offered by your own country and the country/ies you plan to visit. For more information, visit these websites:
We invite you to learn more about our Health Policies and Waiver, which by reference are also incorporated here. Set out below are other in-person Meeting policies, including our cancellation, refund, and substitution policies. All in-person attendees will be expected to comply with our Health Policies.
Fees and Registration Requirements
All registrants for the in-person Annual Meeting must be registered. Your registration entitles you to participate in the in-person Meeting and access the virtual platform. No additional payment is required to access the virtual Meeting for in-person registrants. However, additional fees may be required for add-on events in the virtual platform.
If you wish to convert your registration to a virtual registration, please contact INTA Member Operations. No conversion of in-person registrations will be processed onsite.
Corporate registrants (Regular, Small-Medium Sized Enterprises, Non-Profit [Regular], University) are eligible for bulk discounts. In addition, for every three fully paid registrations for the in-person Annual Meeting, the fourth registration for the Annual Meeting is complimentary.
Associate registrants (Associate and Non-Profit Associate) are eligible for bulk discounts. For every five fully paid registrations for the in-person Annual Meeting, the sixth registration for the Annual Meeting is complimentary.
Bulk discounts are not available to Academic, Individual Associate, and Transitional Members. For information regarding tuition assistance, please see our policy below.
All committee meetings will be conducted in person. Therefore, you must be registered for the in-person Annual Meeting to attend your committee meeting. Those who register for the virtual Meeting will benefit from a post-committee meeting with INTA leadership in the virtual platform.
Member and Non-Member Registration Rates
To enjoy the member registration rate for the Annual Meeting, your organization must already be a member in good standing for 2022 at the time of registration.
If your organization chooses not to renew its membership and proceeds with your Annual Meeting registration, you will pay the non-member rate. However, the difference between the member and non-member registration rate will not be refunded if your organization renews for the 2022 membership year after you have registered for the Annual Meeting.
Payment for the Annual Meeting registration is by credit card only and through our online system. All payment is due upon registration.
Tuition assistance for the Annual Meeting is available to eligible practitioners who have a total individual income of less than US $35,000 a year or are currently unemployed. Proper documentation will be required. For more information or to request an application, please contact us.
Cancellations, Refunds, & Substitutions
If INTA is prevented from hosting the Annual Meeting you registered for as a result of any cause beyond its control, or due to acts of God, strikes, labor disputes, government requisitions, restrictions or war or apparent act of war, terrorism, disaster, civil disorder, epidemic or pandemic, curtailment or restriction on transportation facilities, or any other comparable calamity, casualty or condition (collectively a “Force Majeure”) INTA shall have the right to terminate the affected Annual Meeting without liability immediately and shall be relieved of its obligations to you. If the in-person Annual Meeting is terminated due to a Force Majeure occurrence before the first day of the Annual Meeting, then you may seek a refund of US $500. This represents the difference in price between the in-person and virtual Meeting. In this situation, no cancellation fee will be applied. However, if you do not wish to participate in our virtual Meeting, you may seek a full refund. In this instance, no cancellation fee will be applied.
For consideration of a refund outside of the Cancellation scenario discussed above, submit your Refund Request Form to INTA Member Operations stating in detail the reason for the refund request and including copies of relevant supporting documents for the refund request.
Full refunds for the registration fee paid will be issued only if a cancellation request is received by Friday, April 1, 2022, 11:59 pm United States Eastern Time.
Full refunds for the registration fee, minus a cancellation fee of US $150, will be issued for cancellations requested after Friday, April 1, 2022.
No cancellation requests will be accepted, and no refunds will be given beyond Friday, April 22, 2022, 11:59 pm United States Eastern Time.
Your base registration for the Annual Meeting and any additional related events is transferable to another person affiliated with your member organization umbrella.
To facilitate the substitution process, please submit your Substitution Request Form to INTA Member Operations, stating in detail the reason for the refund substitution and the person attending in your place.
