Workshop Policies 

No-Shows
When participants no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist.  If you are not able to attend, please cancel at least 24 hours prior to the workshop to allow others to attend.    

Late Arrivals
Students arriving 10 minutes or more after the workshop has started will be denied entry as this disrupts not only the presenter but other students. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.
