Purchase Orders (POs) by themselves are not a form of payment. When we receive a Purchase Order, an invoice will be generated and sent per the instructions on the PO. In order to be registered, payment must be received, by check, with registration, before the Early Bird deadline. Any POs we have received and processed before the Early Bird deadline, with a generated invoice, will be honored at the Early Bird price, this is in case there are delays with mailings, etc. For POs sent after the Early Bird deadline: We will accept POs after the Early Bird deadline, they will have an invoice generated, but the payment will need to be a check in hand, brought to registration on-site. 

In order to receive a Refund due to cancellation, one must send a cancellation request by the Regular Registration Deadline. Cancellation requests should be sent to the OAKE National Office in writing by mail or e-mail. Refunds will reflect a 30% cancellation fee. Refunds will not be issued after the Regular Registration deadline. There are no exceptions to this policy. Exception requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
