The fee for the full 2 day 2020 Employment Law Update – 39th Annual Advanced Conference is $1,575.

The fee includes extensive, specially prepared seminar materials, coffee breaks, and a reception the first day. (Breakfast/lunch/dinner are on your own.) 

While registrations may be accepted within the two weeks prior to the beginning of the seminar, we suggest that you call IAML to confirm space availability.

Are you eligible for a discount?

Once an organization has registered a representative for any of the full, 2 day Employment Law Update, subsequent registrants from the same organization who attend any IAML seminar or conference are entitled to a discount. A $200 discount will be given for each subsequent 2 day registrant. A $50 discount will be given for each subsequent partial program registrant.

To receive the discount, participants need not attend the same location or date. Discounts must be requested at the time of registration and are not combinable with other discount offers.

Very attractive discounts are available to organizations which send 5 or more participants to IAML seminars in any 12 month period. Participants do not necessarily need to attend the seminar at the same location or time.

Your policy requires payment two weeks in advance. Can I register for a program that is taking place in less than two weeks?

Yes, based on space availability.  You will be asked for a credit card number at the time of registration, or you may be asked to send a check via overnight mail.  Because IAML’s cancellation policy requires written notification at least two weeks in advance, by registering for a program less than two weeks in advance you are liable for the entire fee, even if you do not attend.

What is your cancellation/transfer policy?

Participants will receive a full refund of any fees paid if IAML receives written notification that they will be unable to attend at least two weeks prior to their program’s starting date.  Otherwise, participants are liable for the entire fee.  Registrants requesting a transfer to another program within this two week period will be charged an additional fee of $150.00.  You may substitute an associate at any time at no additional fee.

Is the hotel included in my enrollment fee?

You are responsible for making your own hotel reservation.  IAML has made arrangements for participants to receive discounted room rates at the hotels where the seminars will be held.  To reserve a room at our special rate you must make your reservation at least 35 days in advance of the seminar.  If you experience any difficulty in making your hotel reservation, even if it’s less than 35 days in advance please call IAML, we may be able to assist you in securing a room at the seminar hotel.
