Registration and Cancellation Policy
Only full-time county or district attorneys and/or their staffs may attend the conference at the $175 or $350 rate. All others must pay $500.
Full-time prosecutors or staff members who pay only the $175 registration fee are entitled to attend all training courses but cannot attend any association functions. An additional association fee of $175 ($350 total) is each participant’s share of costs over and above what the grant allows (for example, excess costs of meals and association overhead). In addition, this fee enables TDCAA to lock in discounted hotel rates and free parking, and entitles the attendee to attend all association functions, including any receptions and lunches.
Because the CCA and TDCAA are dedicated to providing training to every prosecutor who requires it, full registration-fee scholarships (and standard reimbursement) are available for any elected official or full-time employee of a prosecutor’s office who cannot attend a seminar due to financial hardship.
TDCAA fully understands that its members’ schedules can be interrupted by unexpected court settings and other circumstances beyond your control. Please know that in the week prior to an event TDCAA becomes obligated to make several non-refundable payments based on your registration for the training. Thus, cancelling your registration within one week can place a financial burden on TDCAA, a non-profit organization.
Still, we understand that sometimes your need to cancel is obviously beyond your control. If you know or even think there is a possibility you will not be attending an event for which you have already registered, please let TDCAA know as soon as possible. If the cancellation is within one week prior to the event, our preference would be to apply your registration to a future TDCAA training wherein we can budget accordingly, or even to transfer your registration to another member of your office. But that being said, we understand that an immediate reimbursement might be needed, and we will certainly do so if necessary. Please let us know what your preference would be.
