Mandatory attendance policy

The MSBA appreciates the time and financial commitment required of every registrant. Because of the interdependency of each classmates’ participation in all lecture and role plays for this training to be its best for all participants, 100% attendance is required of each registrant. If there’s a scheduling conflict that occurs during the training that requires a registrant to miss any portion of the training, we’ll refund the registration fee and no certificate will be awarded. Again, we’ll refund the tuition for the training so that you will be able to register for a future training. We appreciate your consideration and understanding of this policy. 

If you need accommodations for this event, please email cle@msba.org by December 4th, 2023.


Please note that no tuition waivers or discounts are available for this training.
