Payment/Cancellation

On average, the EMP receives about 130 applications each year. With only 65 spaces in each class, at least 50% of applicants are not accepted into the program. Because of this, a good amount of consideration is placed on your level of commitment to the program. Although accepted attendees pay the registration fee annually (vs. 100% up front) and there is no contractual agreement, you are expected to return to the program each year, more committed than the previous year.

Class of 2020, Year 1 (US$2000 deposit collected upon applying to the program is credited to the registration fee this year)

  • US$4500 for EO members
  • US$5000 for non-members

Class of 2018, Year 3 (US$1000 of the US$2000 deposit collected upon applying to the program is credited to the registration fee this year)

  • US$3300 for EO Members
  • US$3800 for non-members

The registration fee includes: accommodations for four (4) nights, meals, books, other course resources, and shuttle bus service to/from meeting/social venues. Expenses not covered by the registration fee include but are not limited to: air transportation, pre- and post-event ground transportation, gratuities, alcoholic beverages, in-room dining, internet (Hilton Hotel only), food/beverages purchased at the Saturday night activity, and miscellaneous personal incidentals.

Payment and Cancellation Policies for Accepted Applicants (Year 1)

EO requires you to register and pay in full for the Year 1 and a $2,000 deposit within 10 business days of receiving the acceptance letter. Payment by credit card, check or wire transfer is accepted, and must be received and approved within this time frame to confirm your place in the class. If you do not register within 10 days of being accepted or your form of payment is not approved within this time frame (i.e. your credit card is declined or wire transfer not received), your place in the class may be given to someone on the waitlist. Below is a breakdown of the payment schedule for accepted applicants:

The replacement attendee must pay the US$2,000 application deposit upon accepting the invitation to attend the EMP, in addition to the program registration fee.
  • EO strongly recommends the purchase of travel insurance whenever signing up for an EO event as cancellation policies and penalties are strictly enforced.
