General Policies

Below is information about all of our current policies involving the ASCM Oregon Chapter. If you have any questions that are not answered here, feel free to contact us.



To register for our events, you can go to our events calendar, select an event and register there. The pricing for each event varies, but will usually have both member and non-member rates. If you have missed the registration deadline for one of our meetings, you can drop by during the event date and time and register in person. However, do note that there is a walk-in fee of $5 so we always recommend registering as soon as possible.

Registration for our prep courses will include the cost of tuition, partipicant guide, textbooks, and a parking pass (if taking public classes at PCC Sylvania).


Payment processing

Payment for events and classes can be made with a credit/debit card, check, or company purchase order. We will not accept cash for our prep courses. Payment in full is required to prior to participating in the first day of prep courses. If all fees are not received by the first day of class and no special arrangements have been made, your registration will be cancelled per our cancellation policy (below).


Pricing Changes

While we try our best in communicating any changes regarding pricing for our events and courses far ahead of time, sometimes things outside of our control can take priority. Because of this, pricing for prep courses, events, and other materials are subject to change at any time without notice.


Late Registration

Late fees begin at two weeks before the start of the first class. Because of the nature of us conducting these courses for classes based on registration attendance, late registration will be subjected to an additional non-refundable fee of $100. This is due to us having to order a rush shipment for additional textbooks to be provided to you by the first day of the class. If you have any questions regarding late registrations, you can contact our Director of Education.


Cancellation and Refunds

Our cancellation policy differs depending on the type of event. If you would like to cancel your participation in an event, you can contact us here.

For Professional Development Meetings (PDMs), cancellations are allowed up to 48 hours before the event starts. If you have requested a cancellation before this 48-hour mark, you will be provided with a full refund for the tickets you have purchased. If you can contacted us after the 48-hour mark, we will not be able to process a refund.

Prep Courses, Seminars, Workshops and other programs must be cancelled at least 1 week (7 calendar days) before the start of the event for a full refund. If we are not notified at least 1 week ahead of time but the event has not started yet, your refund will still be processed, however you will incur a $50 cancellation fee. If you decide to cancel or chose not to participate in your reservation after the event begins, you will be refunded, but will be subjected to a $100 cancellation fee.

Due to the nature of how Plant Tours are set up with a partnering company, all sales for Plant Tours final and are not eligible for refunds.
