Registration and Cancellation Policies for CIPG Workshops


Registration Fees

In an effort to make our CIPG workshops more affordable and encourage early registration (which really helps with planning), RIGEC has updated its workshop registration fees!

It's simple. If you register for a workshop by the posted Early Bird deadline, the registration fee is $100. This is less than all three of our previous discount combined! If you register after the posted Early Bird deadline, the registration fee is $140.

Note: Workshop 4, to be held on in April 2014 will have a special program fee and cancellation policy. Details will be provided on the workshop brochure and on the website.

Student Fee

Full-time and/or matriculated students may attend programs at the NEW student registration fee of $50, as noted for specific programs. Valid student ID card must be shown at the door.No other discounts apply.

Roger Williams Medical Center: Physicians from RWMC will receive a 25% discount on the regular registration fee. No other discounts apply.

Registrations for CIPG workshops must be accompanied by full payment. Please make checks, money orders, or institutional purchase orders payable to the URI Conference & Special Program (CSPD). Credit card payment (Master Card and Visa) will be accepted by the URI CSPD office and through online registration. Credit cards payments will appear as a charge for a "rigec workshop." If you have any questions regarding the workshop charge, call the URI CSPD at (401) 874-2170.

Registrations are accepted on a space available basis. Early Bird registration and regular registration charges are dependent on stated deadlines. Consult the program brochure for specific dates.

Special Needs

For sign language interpretation, personal FM systems, disability assistance, or special dietary needs, please contact Judith Sweeney at (401) 874-5311. Ten business days' advance notice prior to the workshop is required. For RI Relay services for deaf/hard of hearing, dial 711.


Credit for a future RIGEC program will be granted, less a $50* administrative fee, for cancellations received in writing up to seven (7) working days prior to a particular program. Registrants who are unable to attend a program may transfer their registration for the same program to a colleague without penalty.

Registrants need not participate in the certificate program in order to attend any RIGEC workshops or seminars.

Continuing Education (CE credits)/Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits (as noted), refreshments, lunch, and parking/handicapped parking are provided.

* RIGEC reserves the right to change registration and administrative fees as necessary to account for cost increases at conference venues.
