Confirmation

After registering for the 2020 AADSM Annual Meeting, a confirmation email will be sent from the AADSM. It is recommended that you bring your confirmation email with you to the meeting. This will allow you to pick up your registration materials by using ExpressPass®. If there are any questions or discrepancies with your registration, the confirmation email will provide the information necessary to quickly resolve the issue. 

Cancellation

Notification of cancellation must be submitted in writing to the AADSM national office at annualmeeting@aadsm.org. A $50.00 administrative fee will be withheld on the cancellation postmarked on or before May 8, 2020.

Refunds

Refunds will not be applied to the original payment source (i.e., credit card). Any refunds processed by the AADSM will be paid by check to individuals in the US (or e-payment to individuals who chose to set up an account in Bill.com) and by wire transfer to individuals outside of the US.
