Payment and Confirmation Process

There is a $100 room rental fee, per day, per room. Once the event is scheduled, organizers will receive notification by mid-October confirming meeting space and payment instruction. To guarantee the event space, payment must be received by 30 October 2014; otherwise, the event request will be cancelled. Due to AGU’s contractual obligations to its vendors, no refunds will be issued after that date. AGU will put the organizers in contact with the appropriate catering and audiovisual representatives; the organizers will then work directly with those service providers and be responsible for all expenses associated with the event.
