The statement published on NAFCD's web site:
"NAFCD believes that the fair and equitable response to this grave situation is to pay the expenses already incurred by the Association for the Annual Meeting. We will then reimburse any remaining attendee registration fees on a prorated basis to those registrants who request it by November 1, 2005. To request a refund, please send a letter to NAFCD Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax: 312.673.6962. Refunds will be distributed within 30-60 days after the letter of request has been received and in the manner by which the registration fee was originally paid. Funds from those attendees who choose not to request a refund will be applied to the 2006 Educational Program budget.
Thank you for your patience and understanding."
