Cancellations & Changes by the MICPA

The MICPA reserves the right to cancel a course due to an insufficient number of registrants.

Occasionally, a program will cancel due to weather. When this occurs, MICPA staff will contact each participant. Because some programs may cancel, it is important the MICPA has your correct contact information. The MICPA does not assume financial responsibility for penalties or expenses incurred by registrants who must cancel travel arrangements due to course cancellation.

The MICPA also reserves the right to make changes to prices, dates, locations and speakers at any time without notice.


COVID-19 Protocol for In-Person Events


The MICPA will follow all Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, state & local guidelines, as well as any venue requirements. Attendees are welcome to wear masks while in attendance at MICPA events, however masks are currently not required.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have had recent exposure to someone with COVID-19, we ask that you attend the program virtually, if that is an option, or contact the MICPA for a refund or to transfer to another course in the future.

Thank you for following our COVID-19 protocol.
