FAQs: Please Read Before Registering

What is the alcohol policy?
It is similar to most hotels. In general, if you are someplace in the hotel that can sell alcohol you are not allowed to bring your own in. So this means the lobby bar, conference rooms, ballroom, break out rooms, etc.; you will not be able to bring in your own drinks. If you are suspected of drinking your own alcohol in these areas you will be asked to discard your drink. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, you do not. Please be prepared to give your name and Photo ID when checking in at conference What’s the refund policy?
Registrations are non-refundable Is my registration fee or ticket transferable?
Yes. To transfer a registration please email Chief Operations Officer Beth Michaels [email protected] with the name of the person you are transferring your registration to. It is up to the original owner of the registration to work out a payment arrangement. JCI Michigan will not be responsible for transferring money between parties. Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
