Prompt payment is expected. Cancellation of your online course reservation or failure to send payment postmarked by the third day after your course reservation will result in cancellation of your classroom seat and an assessment of a $25 administrative fee owed to Georgia Genealogical Society, which covers the costs incurred in taking your reservation. Cancellation of a course on the same day that you register for it incurs no fee. Cancellation refund requests must be received in writing no later than June 30, 2017 for the July 2017 institute. There are no refunds after June 30, 2017, for IGHR 2017. Any owed cancellation fees will be carried over to the next year.
