Speakers/Session Topics: PIABA reserves the right to change speakers and/or session topics at anytime for any reason without prior notice.
Meeting Attendance: PIABA reserves the right to reject and/or limit entry into any meeting by any person at any time. PIABA may, at its discretion and for any reason, charge the non-member registration fee.
Audio and Video Taping: Audio and video taping of conference events, general sessions and break-outs is strictly prohibited.
Hardship Policy: Meeting registrants who are unable to afford continuing legal education program meeting registration fees due to financial hardship may petition for registration fee waivers or discounted program fees. To apply, the applicant must (1) submit the request on letterhead; (2) sign the request; (3) submit proof of income or an explanation stating why the normal fee associated with the program causes the lawyer financial hardship; and (4) submit a fully completed course registration form submitted on or before the meeting registration deadline.
Fee waivers do not include reduction in meals, lodging, or travel costs associated with the course or meetings. Scholarships will be awarded on a space-available basis, with preference given to applicants in order of date submitted. For courses costing over $500, qualifying attorneys will receive at least a 50% reduction in the meeting registration fee. The PIABA Board of Directors will waive or reduce meeting registration fees at their discretion.
