Event Payment Policy
The EO Global Leadership Conference (GLC) is open to EO Global and Chapter Officers. Each chapter has six open registrations for Chapter Officers at no charge*. Registration for EO Global and Chapter Officers includes: all educational sessions and materials; all scheduled meals and receptions; scheduled social activities; and ground transportation throughout the event. All other expenses are not covered by registration, including, but not limited to: air transportation, hotel accommodations, optional activities and personal incidentals. The EO Global and Chapter Officers must be in good standing at the time of the event. If member status changes between the time of registration and the start of the event, the cancellation policy below applies.
EO requires that chapters pay the registration fee for each additional Chapter Officer that attends GLC, beyond the first six Chapter Officers that attend. The default method of payment is a deduction from the dues check that EO Global issues to each chapter after GLC. If chapters wish to pay by a different method, please contact EO Global Events. Chapters that pay their dues to EO Global by wire will receive an invoice after GLC.
In addition, chapters who are currently operating, or have been approved to launch local Accelerator programs, may send up to two additional Chapter Officers at no cost to the chapter. In order to qualify for these positions, these members must be listed as the Accelerator Chair or a member of the local Accelerator Committee, as validated by the EO Accelerator program.
GSEA will cover registration fees for any GSEA chair attending that puts their chapter over the allotted 6 registration spots. Sending a GSEA chair under this arrangement is a commitment to hosting a GSEA competition for the 2017-18 fiscal year. In order for a GSEA chair to receive a complimentary registration fee, the GSEA chair must attend all sessions in full and be on time for all sessions.
MyEO will subsidize the registration fee and accommodation of $150 USD per night for 3 nights to the first 75 MyEO Chairs to register for GLC. To qualify, MyEO Chairs must attend all sessions in full and be on time for all sessions. Accommodation will be reimbursed directly to the MyEO Chairs on the basis of their report being sent to the MyEO team within 1 month after GLC. EO will take 30 more days to process the payment.
EO will charge the chapter a US$250 cancellation fee for each registered Chapter Officer that cancels after 13 April or does not show up for the event. All cancellations must be communicated in writing, and are processed according to the date they are received, to EO Global Events. Chapter Officers who cannot attend may give their spot to another Chapter Officer within the same chapter. To effectively prepare registration and learning materials, the member’s name, Chapter Officer position and track changes must be submitted to EO Global Events by 13 April.
Exceptions to the cancellation fee are only granted in the case of a death in the immediate family (spouse or partner, children, parents, siblings) or for an emergency medical situation involving the member, spouse or partner, or legal dependent. The member must provide written documentation from a doctor certifying that the member/guest has a medical emergency that bars travel. All exceptions are subject to review by the Global Events Subcommittee, and will have to be approved prior to the waiver of the cancellation fee. No exceptions will be made for other personal or business reasons. All written documentation and supporting documents must be received within one week after the GLC to be considered for a waiver of the cancellation fee.
