Cancellation policy

If you must cancel your attendance at the RSA annual meeting due to an emergency and wish to request a refund, the following policies apply:

  • There are no refunds on RSA membership dues.
  • A partial refund of the conference registration fee may be available, under limited circumstances.
  • If you submit a refund request on or before 31 December 2016, you will be refunded 50 percent of your registration fee, minus a $25 administrative fee.
  • No refunds will be issued for requests sent on or after 1 January 2018.

Exceptions for serious medical and family emergencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the RSA Executive Director, President, and Vice President, upon receipt of an explanation. In such cases, if a refund is granted, a $25 administrative fee will be assessed.

Print programs: reserve for $10

Beginning this year, to help offset the associated labor and production costs, a ten-dollar surcharge will be applied at the time of registration for those attendees who wish to receive a print copy of the conference program in New Orleans. The most up-to-date version of the program will always be freely available online and through the RSA 2018 New Orleans smartphone app. The full text of the print program will also be made available as a PDF download shortly before the conference.

In order to receive a copy of the printed program book at the New Orleans conference (available at registration after you pick up your name badge) please add "Print program (+$10)" to your cart.

Please be advised that the print program will only be available for pickup at the New Orleans Annual Meeting during registration hours; we're unable to mail programs or issue refunds for books that were not picked up.

Reduced registration

Reduced registration is available to students, independent scholars, adjunct instructors, part-time instructors, and unemployed non-students by entering the promotional code REDUCEDREG at checkout (on the second page of the registration process). The registration system will initially show the full member rate of $185, and will not take your student or employment status into account automatically, even if you have self-designated as such in your profile. You must manually enter the promotional code REDUCEDREG during checkout to receive discounted registration.

Wednesday evening receptions

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to register for a reception happening from 6:00–8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21 before the conference. Tulane University will host a food and drinks reception at the Latin American Library. The New Orleans Museum of Art will host a drinks-only reception. Both receptions require an RSVP and conference registrant name badge (available starting at 2pm at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside on Wednesday). Space is limited, so please register for the conference and the reception of your choice as soon as possible.

Update, 12 December 2017: All available spaces for the New Orleans Museum of Art's Wednesday evening reception have been filled, and RSVPs are no longer available during registration.
