2020 Annual Conference FAQs
2020 WACAC Annual Conference
In light of the ongoing pandemic, we are sad to announce that the 2020 WACAC Annual Conference that was to be held at the Long Beach Convention Center, May 27 – 29th, has been cancelled. No doubt you have questions and therefore, we have prepared this FAQ in order to answer many of them.
Has the conference been cancelled? Will it be rescheduled?
Will my registration fees be refunded?
How will I receive my refund?
How can I help WACAC? Can I donate my registration fees?
Due to the volume of registrants, we must refund all fees. However, in light of members asking to help, we have created a link for members to donate their registration fee or any amount to support our mission. As a registered 501(c3), all donations are tax deductible. We sincerely appreciate your interest in supporting WACAC, and our mission to support and advance the work of counseling and enrollment professionals from California and Nevada as they help students realize their full potential.
Do I need to cancel my hotel reservation? Will I receive a refund?
For those participants who booked via the hotel links sent in the registration confirmation and on the WACAC Conference page, you will not need to cancel your reservations. Both the Hyatt Regency Long Beach and Renaissance Long Beach will cancel all booked rooms without charge. Due to limited staff, both properties have requested that you do not contact the hotel directly at this time. You will receive an automatic cancellation email to the address you provided at the time of booking, sometime by mid-April.
If you booked outside of the WACAC hotel links, you will need to cancel on your own.
What about other lodging or travel arrangements?
I received a scholarship to attend the WACAC Conference. Is it valid for next year?
I submitted a session proposal and was confirmed or placed on the waitlist. Can I present it next year?
How will WACAC conduct our annual elections and business meetings?
Will you still award the annual WACAC recognition awards?
I have a question that was not answered here.
While we have thought of the many questions you may have, in light of these circumstances, we may have missed something. Therefore, we encourage you to contact the Conference Committee at email@example.com and appreciate your patience as we process refunds over the coming weeks
