Registration Cancellation Policy

The Council and LEAF, Inc. work very hard to accommodate the volatile nature of superintendent schedules while keeping high quality programs affordable.

All cancellations must be mailed, faxed (518.426.2229) or e-mailed ( to The Council and LEAF, Inc. offices. We regret we cannot accept telephone cancellations.

While this is the case, please understand that our cancellation policy is in place to offset expenses incurred by The Council and LEAF, Inc. on your behalf.

Expenses are finalized several weeks prior to events so cancellation fees are based on the expense that The Council and LEAF, Inc. are obligated to incur based on registration numbers. Cancellations received close to an event of this magnitude prevent The Council and LEAF, Inc. from making the appropriate changes to prevent these charges.
