General Registration Policies and Procedures for Edco Workshops & Programs

Registration Policies:  Registration is required for all EdCo programs and is accepted right up until the start of the program, or until the program is filled (unless otherwise noted on registration). 

Cancellation by EdCo: The Education Collaborative of WNY (EdCo) reserves the right to cancel
a workshop due to low enrollment, inclement weather or other circumstances that would make
the workshop non-viable. If EdCo cancels a workshop, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in the postponement of a workshop, registrants will have the option to either receive a full refund or transfer registration to the same workshop at the new date/ time.

Cancellation by Participant: Unless specifically stated on registration materials, the deadline to
receive a refund is three business days (72 hours) before the program. Cancellations received
after the stated deadline will not be eligible for a refund. Refunds will not be available for
registrants who choose not to attend a workshop. Cancellations will be accepted in writing only by the stated cancellation deadline. Please contact Ginny Wallace ( for questions or to cancel a registation.
