Refund & Cancellation Policy

Please note we will not offer refunds. Your dues and fees go to support the costs of running this group. We receive no outside financial support. The costs of managing the website, teleconferences, video conferences, admin time, and professional time are all donated by Dr. Marshack.

We also ask that you if you are unable to attend an event, that you give at least 48 hours’ notice. For example, the number of participants to the video conferences are limited so that you have the opportunity to talk with other participants in a more intimate setting. As a result, there are often other members who want to attend and are on a wait list. If you don’t show up or don’t cancel in enough time, it is difficult to make your spot available to others

Donations

We gladly accept donations. Thank you for considering our organization. We are not a non-profit organization, but we aim to use all proceeds to further our organization and to fund other nonprofits. Donations may be used to pay expenses. However, Dr. Kathy is dedicated to helping fund social services and research on topics relevant to this organization. Our goal is to donate at least 5% of monies received, after expenses. We hope you can help us reach this goal.
