Additionally, ALL REGISTRATIONS ARE TO BE MADE ONLINE ONLY.  NO Paper Registration and/or Miscellaneous Checks without prior ONLINE REGISTRATION will be accepted (NO EXCEPTIONS). 

If you are having any issues with registering online, please email the details of your issues (preferably with screenshots) to our Board of Director – Elaine P. Micewicz, at [email protected] for assistance before the event.  Please understand that these are volunteer positions, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.   Thank you.

Payment Types Accepted

  • Credit Cards: Paypal is our third party processor. We accept all major credit cards and/or use of your PayPal Account for payments. Payments can be made online through the acfenj.org account, which then links to Paypal. At ACFE NJ Chapter#9 events, we also accept credit card payments in-person with proper identification.

Should any payment be rejected and/or insufficient funds, ACFE NJ will invoice fees and your balance. Furthermore, if Checks are not cleared and/or received, further fees and penalties shall be assessed. 

Cancellation Policy and No Shows

If you have registered and/or paid for an event and you need to cancel, you MUST cancel with an email to [email protected] no later than five (5)  business days before the event, unless otherwise indicated in specific event policies, to request a refund and/or cancel your registration. The Chapter must confirm event registrations with the venue before the event, and any changes after this time period can become a financial cost to the Chapter. The Chapter reserves the right to make the final determination on what percentage charge/refund will be returned for cancellations made after the cutoff. The default condition is that cancellations made after the cutoff will be charged at 100%, and/or no refunds will be allowed. In the event the Chapter determines that partial charges or refunds will be allowed, they will be made on a case by case basis.

If an attendee does not show up to the event, the registration cost will be forfeited. If payment at the door was the selected method, then the attendee will be billed for the event's full cost. The Chapter reserves the right to bar future registrations for any attendees who routinely register and fail to pay and/or attend the event.  If you have any questions, you may email  [email protected]

Liability

The registration fees do not include participants' insurance against personal accidents, sickness, cancellations by any party, theft, loss, or damage to personal possessions. The ACFE NJ Chapter#9 is not liable. The attendee will not hold ACFE NJ Chapter#9 liable or responsible for any personal accidents, sickness, cancellations by any party, theft, loss, or damage to personal possessions. Participants are strongly advised to take out adequate personal insurance to cover travel, accommodation, cancellation, and personal effects.

Speaker/Topic Substitution

The Chapter reserves the right to substitute the presenter and/or topic prior to the event with or without notice. This situation may occur if the presenter is unable to attend. This substitution may occur on the day of the event. While the Chapter will attempt to communicate presenter/topic changes to attendees in advance, this may not always be possible. Regardless of the reason for the substitution, the attendee acknowledges that refunds will not be allowed.

Photos & Privacy

Attendees agree to their pictures, videos, and/or voice being taken or recorded by the Chapter, other attendees, speakers, the venue, and/or the media. Attendees also agree that there will be no compensation or rights attached to such recordings, and this notice applies to all events in which the attendee is present. If the attendee would not like their photos, videos, or voice recordings used, the attendee must notify the chapter at the event. Attendees also authorize the Chapter to share the attendee list with event sponsors. Information that will be shared will be limited to name, company, title, and email address. If an attendee does not want their information shared with the sponsor, the attendee must notify the Chapter on the day of the event or during the registration process if applicable.  Individuals who are given an identifier to wear as an ‘opt-out’ individual are responsible for wearing the identifier prominently and visibly at all times.

Venue Access

ACFE NJ Chapter#9 reserves the right to refuse admittance or remove from the premises anyone who is disruptive to the event, attendees, and/or the presenter. If an individual is removed from the event due to disruptive or obnoxious behavior and deportment, the attendee agrees that they forfeit their registration fee and are not entitled to a refund. On its own, the venue may also deem to remove an individual from the venue and/or event for any reason. As above, if an attendee is removed from the premises, they are not entitled to a refund.

Annual Membership Dues

Chapter dues are for the calendar year (ending December 31st), are not prorated, and are non-refundable. Chapter dues help run the chapter's overhead cost, allowing an active member to attend free webinars, member-only events, and receive member discounted pricing seminars. It is the responsibility of the member to ensure that their membership dues are current.

Award Eligibility

To be eligible for Chapter-sponsored awards, the member must be in good standing with the Chapter and have joined/renewed their membership more than 60 days before nomination.

ACFE NJ Chapter#9 would like to thank our sponsors for your continued support.
