Registration Policy

If you’re signing up for any of ANSM’s courses or workshops, please note our Registration Policies below:

To Register (Updated January 2020)

Payment is required to confirm registration and must be received by the deadline either through online registration or via mail. We are unable to “hold” spots for individuals without payment.

Registration for Museum Studies Program courses is for individuals, not institutions, and it is therefore non-transferable.

Registration for workshops and other training events may be transferable within an institution with notice given to ANSM administration before the registration deadline. Full name and contact information of the new registrant must be supplied in order for us to confirm their participation.

Please refer to course/workshop advertising for fees and deadline information.

Organisations/individuals must be members in good standing to receive the membership discount rate. Members with overdue ANSM Reference Library items will not be eligible for the membership discount rate.

In the spirit of networking and connecting with other course/workshop participants, when you register, you accept to share your name and email with that group. If your email is private, please let us know at time of registration. Likewise, your photo may be taken during the course/workshop and shared via our social media outlets. If you do not want to be in any photos, you must inform us at time of registration.

Many of our courses/workshops include lunch and/or snacks. When we confirm your registration, we will ask for any food sensitivities (allergies or diet restrictions) so that we can be sure that everyone will have something to enjoy.

Cancellations (Updated January 2020)

Cancellations received less than five working days in advance of the course/workshop are not eligible for refunds.

Those participants who do not attend, or cancel their registration within five working days of a given course/workshop remain responsible for full payment.

Wait Lists

A wait-list exists for each course/workshop to fill the place of any cancellations. Because Museum Studies Program courses and other workshops are in high demand, we always keep and refer to our wait lists.

Institutional Limits

While registration for Museum Studies Program courses is for individuals, we reserve the right to limit the number of individuals from a given institution to three. Similarly, the institutional cap of three exists for workshops until it is determined that more spots are available.

There are no limits on registration for symposiums and conferences; we welcome anyone and everyone!
