2020 National School Social Work Conference

Please read the following Registration Policies and Procedures before completing registration.  When you proceed to the registration, you are accepting responsibility for following these procedures.

Payment:  Individuals are given two options for payment.  Individuals can pay online by credit card at the time of registration OR individuals can choose to be invoiced for their registration, agreeing to pay at a later date by check payment.  Individuals will not be able to pay by credit card if the “invoice me” option is chosen.  Credit card payments are only available at the time of registration due to registration platform requirements.

Purchase Order:  A Purchase order is, “a document authorizing a seller to deliver goods, with payment to be made at a later date.”  In other words, a Purchase Order is promise of payment.  SSWAA accepts a Purchase Order (PO) as promise of payment from a district for a registration.  Receipt of a Purchase Order will secure a registration.  However, payment is due when service is rendered – on site at the conference.  If you are using a Purchase Order, please communicate with your district to ensure that payment will be received before the conference or at the conference by Thursday, March 19, 2020.  Payment not received at the conference will be subject to late fees.  Purchase orders should be emailed to Tony@sswaa.org.


Late Fees:  Any registration that has not been paid by Friday (March 20th) of the conference will be subject to late fees.  A late fee of $20 will be assessed for registration fees received 1-7 days late.  A late fee of $50 will be assessed for registration fees received 8-30 days late.  A late fee of $100 will be assessed for registration fees received more than 30 days late. 

Early Bird Registration: Attendees that register and pay during the Early Bird Registration window will receive a complimentary copy of Howard Blonsky’s book, The Dropout Prevention Specialist Workbook, as an early registration gift.  Any registration that is made during the Early Bird window, that has not been paid by October 31st, will be adjusted to reflect the higher Regular Conference Rate and will not be eligible for the complimentary book offer.  Those receiving the book will pick it up at on-site registration.

Cancellation Policy:  The published cancellation policy states that: “All cancellations MUST be in writing. Individuals sending written requests postmarked before February 21, 2020 will receive a refund minus a 25% administrative fee. There will be no refunds after February 21, 2020 for any reason.”
