NCMS Event Registration Guidelines

Before your registration process can be completed, you must read and accept these terms of registration by selecting the “I Accept the “NCMS Event Registration Guidelines” box below.

As a condition of registration, you and all others participating in the NCMS Event, are required to agree to the terms and conditions of the “NCMS Event Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreement”, which will follow.  NCMS reserves the right to deny access to the NCMS Event if you choose not to agree to said terms and conditions.  If you complete your registration outside of a  web-based platform for any reason, request registration on your behalf by NCMS, or attend an NCMS Event without prior registration,  you are still responsible for adhering to the terms of the “NCMS Event Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreement”.

It is your responsibility to complete and deliver any necessary forms by the provided timelines. Your inability to or delinquency in providing necessary information may result in the inability for you to access or attend specific NCMS Events.  Your registration does not guarantee access to the NCMS Event.  Both NCMS and the hosting entity ­­­may reasonably deny access to the NCMS Event for justifiable reasons, including, but not limited to,  improper registration, criminal background record, outstanding governmental debts, failure to show proof of citizenship, or the like. You understand that NCMS is not responsible for the loss of fees or damages resulting from any such denial of access.

As part of the registration process, the hosting entity may require the collection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that will not be received or used by NCMS. Any such information will be provided directly to the hosting entity.

NCMS may publicly display the information you provide as part of your registration (such as your name, position, email, phone number, and a summary of your company’s offerings) within physical print media, online digital media, or other digital means. NCMS may supplement the information you provide, as part of your registration, with publicly accessible information from your company’s website, if deemed necessary. You understand that the public may view NCMS’s website.

We look forward to your participation in this NCMS Event.  If you have any questions or need assistance with registration, please contact eventsupport@ncms.org.
