BMES reserves the right to confiscate any badge being worn by an individual other than the named attendee without refund, re-issuance or re-admittance into the conference.

Event tickets (if applicable) will not be replaced if lost on-site.
 

Cancellation/Refund Policies
Requests for registration cancellation must be received by registrar@bmes.org in writing no later than November 21, 2019 in order for a refund to be processed.* Refund requests will not be honored after 11/21.

Membership dues payments are final and will not be refunded.

*Non-attending (no-show) registrants will not be refunded unless they are unable to attend the 2020 CMBE Conference due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. flight cancellations, medical emergencies). These registrants must submit reasonable verification of their inability to attend via email to registrar@bmes.org prior to the conclusion of the conference. Failure to submit this documentation and correspondence by January 6, 2020 will result in 100% forfeiture of all registration fees paid, regardless of circumstances surrounding the absenteeism.

Fillable PDF Registration Form
(COMPLETE ELECTRONICALLY - HANDWRITTEN & SCANNED SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED)

The fastest and easiest way to register for the 2020 CMBE Conference is to complete your registration online. You should only submit a PDF form if you are having trouble with our website OR if you are paying by check.

The 2020 CMBE Conference Pre-Registration Form is an interactive, fillable PDF and must be completed using a computer or device with standard PDF editing software installed (Adobe, Foxit, SumatraPDF, etc). HANDWRITTEN, "PEN AND INK" FORM SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR PROCESSEDCompleted forms should be saved in PDF format and sent as an email attachment to 
REGISTRAR@BMES.ORG no later than 12/12/2019 at 11:59pm (Eastern Time). Forms submitted after 12/12 will not be accepted. Forms submitted in any format other than a .pdf file (e.g. .doc, .gif, .jpeg) will not be opened. Submissions that have been printed & scanned, copied, photographed and/or screenshotted will be rejected.

Note -- download the pdf file before completing it. Do not try to fill it out using your web browser's PDF viewer. These don't always save an editable/fillable file's data when it has been entered directly on-screen of the browser window, even when you save the file after filling it out. To avoid this, be sure to download and open the form in a PDF software prior to completing it.

To download the form, right click the link below, select "Save Link as" and choose a place on your computer where you can easily find the saved file. Hit "save" and then minimize or close your web browser window -- once again, do not fill the form out from within your web browser. Find and open the downloaded file directly from the location on your computer that you saved it to. By default, it should open in your computer's PDF viewer or editing software, which you will then use to fill out the form electronically by typing your information into each of the appropriate form fields within the PDF. When you have completed the form, be sure to save the file one more time before closing it out and submitting it.
