Inclusivity Statement

The NC Chamber always strives to provide an inclusive event experience for all attendees, allowing for an open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression. We want every participant to feel welcome, included and safe at NC Chamber events. Moreover, we will do our best to accommodate specific needs – be it accessibility or dietary requirements. We cannot promise to solve every issue but will try our best.

Code of Conduct

The NC Chamber is dedicated to providing a harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, experience, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event venue, including anything communicated during the content of the event, on social media or any other online outlets. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the event organizers, and appropriate legal action will be taken against violators where applicable.

Refund Policy

Full refunds are available if the NC Chamber is notified no later than five business days prior to fee-based events. Any cancellation requests must be made before this time as we need to confirm meals and seating with the venue in which an event is being held. Where applicable, registrants may transfer credit towards another event if request is made within the timeframe mentioned above.

If the cancellation request is received after the deadline, we cannot issue a refund and would recommend a substitution. A written notification of a substitution will be accepted by email up to noon of the day prior to the event. If the event is held on a Monday or a weekend, such request must be made no later than noon on the preceding Friday.

To request a cancellation or to make a change, please contact Natasha Simmons at nsimmons@ncchamber.com or 919-836-1413.

Program Cancellation

Policy In case a program is cancelled, the NC Chamber will contact registrants who provided a phone number or e-mail at the time of registration. There also will be a notice on the Chamber’s website announcing the cancellation. If you have registered for a program that has been cancelled, you may elect to receive a full refund or choose to use your registration fee as a credit towards a future program. Registration fees will be refunded within 30 business days after a program has been cancelled.

Complaint Resolution

Policy Complaints in regards to events hosted by the NC Chamber will be facilitated through the Vice President of Business Development. The Vice President of Business Development will make every effort to resolve complaints satisfactorily for all parties involved.

Course Update Policy

The NC Chamber has a responsibility to ensure that all activities, materials, and presentations used in events are current, technically accurate, and effectively designed.
