Event Registration Policies

Registration rules and participation policies for in-person and virtual ASCD events.

Event Registration Policies

Attendees at ASCD events must be 18 years of age or older to attend, unless prior authorization has been secured in advance from ASCD. Student presenters under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.



Consent to Use Video or Photographic Images and Share Information

Registration and attendance at, or participation in, ASCD event meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement that allows ASCD to use and distribute the registrant, attendee and/or participant's image, name or voice in recordings, photographs, videos, websites, social media and/or print and digital collateral.

If you have questions about our policy, please email our Legal Department.


Data Use

ASCD events are interactive experiences, customized for participants by using information and preferences shared with ASCD during registration and entry into the event. As a participant experiences and moves around physical venues or digital platforms, ASCD is capturing behaviors of individual users for purposes of gamification, capacity tracking and general analytics.

Contact information sharing with other participants (attendees, presenters and vendor representatives) is controlled through a participant’s own preferences and interactions. Virtually, contact information may be captured for exhibitors and sponsors if a participant chooses to share it.

Other behaviors are consolidated into aggregate analytics (attendee counts without personally identifiable information) and shared with companies post-conference. Please note that if a participant chooses to engage in other activities hosted by exhibitors and sponsors outside ASCD hosted events, those organizational policies apply and are not related to ASCD or its products and services.


Registration Terms and Payment Types


Registration for an ASCD event does not include hotel, travel, activities, or meals other than those specified in the event details, nor does it include registration for any pre-conference institutes or keynote luncheons, which require separate registration and payment. Check the registration form for any additional fees.


Registration payment can be made at the time of registration via credit card or purchase order. We do not accept credit card information via phone or email. We also do not accept cash for registrations.

Registration Confirmation

If you register via fax or email, you will receive a confirmation email within two weeks of receipt. If you register online, you will receive an immediate confirmation.

Please see the ASCD event cancellation policy.



Please make sure to note on your registration form if you have any ADA needs and a member of our team will contact you. If you have questions, please contact us at acregistration@ascd.org. Requests made within 30 days of the event may not be able to be fulfilled.



Virtual Author Workshop and Webinar Cancellation

We work hard to bring you world-class webinars that meet your needs. At times, given unforeseen circumstances, there may be a need for an ASCD webinar to be canceled or postponed. When this happens, ASCD will refund your event registration fee but will not be responsible for any other costs incurred.

In-person Events

Purchases made for in-person events are nonrefundable, but they are transferable until two weeks prior to the start date of the event. Email acregistration@ascd.org to initiate transferring your registration to another educator. Note that requests made after the two week time period will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may not be processed before the event start date.


Certificate of Attendance


A certificate of attendance will be emailed to all conference participants about one week after the event.

In-Person Events

Certificates are available post-event on your event attendee menu.


Accessing Presentation Materials

Presentation materials will be available by session to add to your digital tote. Presenters may share additional media and resources as part of their sessions or session records. These resources are provided for attendees' personal use and are not for distribution unless the resource explicitly states that it can be broadly distributed or written permission is individually granted by the presenter. In either case, proper attribution to the original creator is required.

Meeting rooms will have wireless access and limited electrical outlets. We encourage you to download the materials to your laptop or print copies and bring them with you to the sessions. There will be charging stations throughout the common areas, but please make sure your laptop is charged each morning.
