Something came up, and I can’t attend. What is the cancellation policy?

Unfortunately, due to this conference’s virtual nature, we will not honor cancellation and refund requests. Once registered, you will receive access to our online event platform to view plenary and workshop sessions on-demand.

Does the Alliance offer CEUs for attending the conference?

While we do not offer CEUs for our conference, we can provide you with a letter confirming your registration after the conference. You can assemble session descriptions and speaker bios by visiting our conference mobile app. If you would like to request a letter confirming your registration, please contact Aaron Chalmers at achalmers@naeh.org.

Does the Alliance accept proposals for workshop topics and speakers?

Alliance staff plan all workshop content and conduct all speaker recruitment. We are always interested in hearing from the community about recommended speakers and subjects as we plan the conference agenda. If you would like to share your suggestions, use this link to contact us.

I received a scholarship in the past. Can I apply again?

If you have received a scholarship in the last two years, you will not be eligible for a scholarship to the Ending Homelessness: A Virtual Conference.

I just purchased a virtual information table. Can the people staffing the table attend workshops or plenary sessions?

Individuals staffing information tables may not participate in the conference as a registered attendee (this includes attending both workshops and plenaries) unless they have paid an attendee registration fee.
