WASBO Accounting Conference

Registration Rates, Hotel Accommodations & Cancellation Policies

WASBO Accounting Conference registration rates include electronic conference handouts, breakfast, breaks, and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday. Take advantage of both early bird discounts and multi-attendee pricing! Early bird pricing offers about a 5% savings over regular conference rates when you register on or before Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Organizations that register 2 or more individuals qualify for an additional discount of approximately 10% so bring your team and save! (To take advantage of multi-attendee pricing, at least one of your attendees must be a WASBO member.)

*At least one individual from your organization must be a WASBO member to take advantage of multi-attendee pricing. If the multi-attendee pricing option is selected erroneously (i.e. you are the only registrant from your organization), you agree to be billed for the difference in registration fees.
**Individuals registering at the Non-Member rate receive a free trial WASBO membership through 6/30/2020 if they have not previously been a member.

Hotel Accommodations

Special conference hotel rates have been negotiated with the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center for Tuesday through Thursday nights, March 19 through March March 21, 2019. You will be quoted a room rate of $119 for a single, or $129 per night for doubles, triples or quads.

To make your hotel reservations at these discounted rates, contact the Kalahari directly at 877.253.5466 or reserve your room online on or before Sunday, February 17, 2019. Be sure to ask for the "WASBO Accounting Conference" room block. The deposit policy for hotel reservations is one night (plus tax) at the time reservations are made. Hotel cancellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to arrival to receive a full refund less $25 processing fee. Less than 72 hours prior to scheduled arrival forfeits the entire deposit.

If you are sales tax exempt in Wisconsin, please be sure to bring BOTH your tax exempt form and a completed Wisconsin S211 and present them when checking in. Unfortunately, Wisconsin state statute requires the Kalahari to collect sales tax for tax-exempt organizations from out of state.


Cancellation Policy

Full refund of fees will be made on Accounting Conference cancellations received IN WRITING on or prior to March 13, 2019. (Cancellations may be emailed to Tina Hafeman at tina.hafeman@wasbo.com.) For Accounting Conference cancellations received March 14 through March 19, $75 per cancelled conference day will be retained to help cover food costs (e.g. $150 will be retained if cancelling a full conference registration; if cancelling Wednesday only or Thursday only, $75 will be retained). No refunds will be made for cancellations received on or after March 19 or for no shows at the conference.
