For each workshop and conference, there is an early registration deadline. Anyone sending in a registration form after the deadline, must pay the late fee. There will be no exceptions to this policy. We have deadlines we must meet with hotels and hosting sites, handouts to prepare, registration packets to compile, etc. It also costs SCAPA money if we do not have accurate meal counts for functions. Brochures are sent out at least two months in advance, giving members ample time to request approval and funds. PLEASE do not wait until the last minute to request approval as it may cost you more.


NAAPCC, NCCAP and LTHCA require that persons attend an entire session in order to receive credit. In order to maintain our integrity and assure these rules are met, the following policy will be in affect. Anyone who arrives more than 5 minutes after the start of a session, without a pass from a session monitor, will be asked to hand their certificate to a session monitor. The monitor will then mark "NO CREDIT" through the time slot for all sessions taking place during that time frame. The member may still attend the session, but will not receive credit. Breaks are normally 30 miniutes each, allowing everyone ample time to get to sessions on time. Also, if anyone must leave during a session, they must return within a reasonable amount of time to receive credit.


Refunds for conference and workshops will be given in case of illness of the member or family, death in family, or Surveyors in member's facility at the time of the event. Refund requests must come to the Board in writing and must be made within 30 days of the close of the event. No refunds will be issued after the 30 day period. Missed conference/workshop fees also will not be applied to a future conference or workshop. Member must request a refund if they meet the above stated criteria. Those who meet the criteria and do not request a refund within the 30 days, will forfeit their registration fee.
