Make/Break Deadline for On-campus Workshops

Make/Break Deadline is two weeks prior to the workshop date. If sufficient registration has not been received by that date, the workshop will be canceled.

If the workshop has made by the make/break deadline, we will continue to accept registration until two working days before the event or until maximum registration is reached. In fairness to presenters, this policy will be strictly followed. Please register early.

Online workshops will be available only during the time frame specified. You may view the workshops more than once.

Refund Policy

SLIS will refund registration fees received for programs only under the following conditions:

  1. SLIS is notified of cancellation five working days in advance of the program,
  2. Participant is ill and notifies SLIS by the day before the program, or
  3. SLIS cancels the program.
