What is your cancellation policy?


You can cancel your registration and receive a full refund (minus $50 processing fee) through September 7, 2021. If you had previously registered for the in-person Fall Forum, we will reach out to you to coordinate a refund.




Is the Fall Forum in-person or virtual?


We were originally planning to host a hybrid event with in-person sessions in Minneapolis. After consultation with our board and staff, we decided on August 24 to move to a fully virtual Forum. This means our in-person conference components will now be online.

This decision is based on the increasing number of COVID cases across the country, CDC's guidance that vaccinated people wear masks in areas of substantial and high transmission (which includes most of the U.S., including Minneapolis), and the latest news that boosters will be needed to ensure vaccine effectiveness.
We look forward to coming together in person for our next Fall Forum in 2023!
