SMEI/Masgutova Foundation Cancellation and Refund Policy

MNRI Family Conferences are staffed by a diverse field of professionals who have been certified as Core Specialists. Many of these professionals run their own practice in addition to assisting us. As such, some conferences may have a limited number of staff.

In order to provide the best service possible for our families, we limit the ratio of Client to Specialist to 1|1.

With our desire to maintain a high level of service, cancellation of registrants may occur if there are not enough Staff. Registrants will be informed of this 10 days before the event takes place. If MNRI is forced to cancel any registrants, a full refund of the conference fees will be given. Cancellations will be offered first on a voluntary basis. If there are not enough volunteers, cancellation protocol will be enacted starting with the most recent registrants.

Full refunds will be given for registration cancellation up to 21 days prior to the conference.
A 25% administration charge will be retained for cancellation 11-20 days prior to the conference.
Cancellation within 10 days of the conference is non-refundable due to the financial commitments that the organization has made to hotels, travel expenses and salaries of Core Specialists from around the world.

We recommend that attendees who will be flying do not purchase their flight until after the 10-day window has elapsed to avoid a nonrefundable circumstance with the airline. SMEI/Masgutova Foundation is not liable for any ticket costs related to the course being canceled. SMEI/Masgutova Foundation is not liable for any costs related to transportation (airline tickets, train, taxi, etc) due to the cancellation of an event.

* A 2.5% transaction fee (processing fee) will be withheld on all refunds that were processed using credit card/Pay Pal. If a participant wishes the refund to be paid directly to their account via credit card/Pay Pal, the participant will be charged an additional 2.5% transaction fee (processing fee). Refund by check is available upon request.

For cancellation and refund requests related to health issues, family tragedy or other significant life events please contact us.
