REGISTRATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Membership
All attendees of The Intersection Event must apply for an Intersection Conference membership. Memberships comes in a variety of different levels offering a range of options and possibilities to support the event and its work.

Tax deductibility
Payments for Intersection Conference membership are made to the Gratitude Network, a public 501 (c) 3 nonprofit foundation which owns and promotes The Intersection Event. Part of the membership payment takes the form of a contribution to this foundation. A portion of your membership is not tax deductible (value of services received). The amount the member pays in excess of the value of services received may be tax-deductible as a philanthropic contribution, although you should consult your own advisers as individual situations may differ. We will automatically email you a receipt acknowledging your contribution after the fiscal year-end (December 31st) for the year in which payment was received.

Intersection reserves the right to terminate memberships
We reserve the right to terminate any membership at any stage without explanation by notifying the individual concerned by email, and delivering a refund. The amount of the refund depends on your membership status:

Refunds
We cannot refund a membership, since the bulk of the membership fee is a charitable contribution. If for some reason you cannot attend the main conference, your best option is to transfer or carry over the membership. (Terms vary depending on the conference. See below.)
