I already registered and paid the individual price, but now I want to add members to my group and receive the group discount. How can I do this?
If you would like to take advantage of the group pricing, you must register your entire group of five attendees together during the same registration session. You cannot add members to an individual registration after the registration has already been submitted. If you are not sure whether or not you will be part of a larger group, please wait until you have confirmed your group members before you register.
Unfortunately, due to limited capacity, we are unable to accept on-site registration for the 2019 Summit.
If you’re not on the Carnegie Foundation mailing list, sign up now to be the first to hear about next year’s Summit, scheduled for April 1-3, 2020, in San Francisco.
Substitutions can be made until April 12, 2019 without an additional processing fee. The original attendee must send a substitution request to the registration manager at email@example.com.
To modify or cancel your registration please log back into your registration with your email address and confirmation number.

Refunds are limited to conference fees paid and do not include any travel, lodging, transportation, or other fees paid independently of conference registration. Cancellations completed for conference registrations on or before 11:59pm PST March 18, 2019, will receive a full refund minus a $100 per person processing fee. Refunds will not be provided for cancellations made beginning 12:00am PST March 19, 2019, and after, or for no-shows.
Refunds may be granted if an attendee is unable to attend the conference due to a family death, illness, or other extraordinary circumstance. In such a circumstance, Summit Registration must be contacted by phone or e-mail. If initial notification is by phone, it must be followed up in writing. Refunds will still be subject to the $100 processing fee.

If a cancellation is completed for an attendee who has received a group discount (five or more people registering together), the discount will no longer apply if the cancellation causes the group size to drop to four people or less. The regular registration rate will be applied to the remaining group members, and they will be responsible for the difference.
