Refund Policy

On Membership:

Within 30 days after a firm has spent 12 consecutive months as a GBA member, the firm may request a full refund of its application fee and all dues paid to GBA providing that 1) a firm representative has attended at least one national GBA conference and 2) the firm returns to GBA each item it has ordered (without charge) that has a retail value in excess of $100, or pays the retail price of such items.

On Events:

Refer to the meeting brochure for full details, including specific fees and dates.  A full refund (less an administrative fee) will be given to those whose cancellations are received by a specified date. We’re truly sorry, but absolutely no refunds can be given for cancellations received after that date.

Please note: You will be charged whatever GBA has to pay in the event that your hotel reservation is not cancelled in a timely manner and we are unable to assign the room to someone else. Be sure to notify us even if you have to cancel late, so we can at least try to eliminate any additional charges. Also note: Most hotels have instituted an early check-out policy; i.e., if you reserve to depart on the 7th, but leave a day early, you will be charged for the night you “missed,” unless you make arrangements with the hotel in advance.

On Publications and other Items:

GBA will issue a full refund if the item is returned in unused condition within seven business days after delivery and accompanied by a statement signed by the individual (if purchased for individual use) or an authorized representative of the organization (if purchased on behalf of an organization) stating that a refund is desired. GBA does not pay for return shipping.
