    What should I wear to an event?

    NACE events are set in a relaxed, professional atmosphere. Attire is business casual. Meeting room temperatures can be cool and the climate may vary, so it is recommended that you wear layered clothing for comfort.

    I cannot attend, but my colleague can. What do I do?

    You can transfer your registration to a colleague by following these steps:

    • Submit your request in writing to events@naceweb.org at least 10 business days before the program’s scheduled start date.
    • Include your registration confirmation with your written request.

    Only one transfer is allowed per original registration.
    (Please note: NACE reserves the right to deny substitution requests, in advance or on site.)

    I need to cancel my registration for a NACE event or educational program. Can I get my money back?

    For most NACE events and educational programs*, a full refund will be granted if you cancel at least 15 days prior to the start of the event/educational program. Your request must be made in writing, and directed to events@naceweb.org.

    Cancellation requests made less than 15 days prior to the start of the event/program are not refundable. However, a credit equal to the value of the cancelled registration will be issued and will be valid for 12 months from the date of issue.

    Please note: No-shows are not eligible for a refund or credit.

    (* For cancellations related to the NACE Conference, Management Leadership Institute, and Career Coaching Intensive, please refer to the individual events for details about refunds.)

    I need a copy of my invoice/confirmation.

    If you need copy of your invoice or confirmation, please see your MyNACE account or contact our professional development team at events@naceweb.org.

    Can I get NBCC/HRCI credits for attending an event?

    NACE is recognized by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) and the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) as qualified to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for National Certified Counselors and credits for PHR/SPHR. Some presentations will be available for recertification credits.

    All requests for Continuing Education Credit Hours should be sent to educationrequest@naceweb.org. Documentation will be provided five business days from the date of inquiry. Registration and attendance will be verified prior to issuance.

    What meals are included in my registration?

    Please refer to the specific program information online for details about meals.

    As a NACE member, do I save any money on my registration?

    Yes—this is a key benefit of membership, and NACE members enjoy steep discounts on events. Although the size of the discount ranges depending on the event, your membership can save you as much as 35 percent of the regular price of the event.

    My boss is a NACE member. Can I attend at the member rate, too?

    You must have your own membership to receive the member rate. For details about membership, see our website.

    Are there group rates available?

    NACE has a standard group discount policy for all professional development events, both in-person and online. These discounts do not apply to the Management Leadership Institute.

    • If five or more staff from the same organization register, NACE will grant a 5 percent per registrant discount off of the applicable member or nonmember rate for each registrant.
    • If 10 or more staff from the same organization register, NACE will grant a 10 percent per registrant discount off of the applicable member or nonmember rate for each registrant.
