Policies and Liabilities Statement

Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Disclaimer
SAWC, its contractors, and attending news media may be photographing or videotaping scientific sessions and events at the meeting. By attending SAWC, attendees acknowledge these activities and agree to allow their image to be used by SAWC in association publications, on the SAWC website, and in marketing and promotional materials. Attendees at SAWC waive all claims against SAWC for any liability resulting from these uses.

Cancellation Policy
Cancellation requests must be received in writing and postmarked by September 6, 2017. Cancellations received by this date will receive a refund minus a $100 processing fee. Registrants wishing to cancel may send someone to take their place without penalty if they send a written request with the replacement person’s name by September 6, 2017. No refunds will be issued after September 6, 2017. If you do not cancel and do not attend the meeting, you are still responsible for full payment. Hotel and transportation reservation cancellations must be handled by the individual registrant directly with the hotel, airline, and/or other company. 

Payments made may not be applied toward tuition for future SAWC conferences, nor other meetings or products offered by NACCME.

No refunds are offered for classes which may be suspended or shortened due to weather or other conditions or circumstances beyond HMP Communications’ control.

Children
Under no circumstances will children under the age of 18 be allowed at the conference or in the exhibit hall during installation or dismantle. For reasons of insurance, children under the age of 18 are not permitted on the show floor. Because of limited seating capacity and the highly technical nature of the programs, children under the age of 18 are not invited to attend presentations.

Industry-Supported Symposia (ISS) Disclaimer
Please note that because ISS programs are supported by industry grants or sponsorships, the producers of SAWC along with the sponsoring company reserve the right to restrict these sessions to non-competitive industry clinicians only. If you are deemed to be a representative from a competitive company your registration to an ISS program can be cancelled at any time.

Session Seating
Seating is limited for all session rooms and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
