The ability to terminate this agreement without liability according to this paragraph is conditioned upon delivery of written notice to the other party setting forth the basis for such termination as soon as reasonably practical – but in no event longer than ten (10) days – after learning of such basis.

  • We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any cancellation, postponement, or substantial change to the Event (e.g., dates, location).

Substitution Policy

  • Registrants unable to attend the Event may submit an alternate person to attend in their place. No substitution is valid unless the registered attendee submits a written request for the substitution via email to events@educatorsusa.org, including any required information regarding the eligibility of the alternate attendee to be registered, and Educators of America has responded affirmatively that the substitution has been accepted.
  • Registrant substitution requests must be received no later than June 2, 2024. After that, any substitutions will be processed on-site at the sole discretion of Educators of America.

Other than in the case of an authorized substitution, the tickets you purchase for Paradise-Based Learning are only for your own personal use and cannot be resold or transferred to someone else. Reselling or transferring your ticket not in accordance with these terms will void the ticket, and the ticket holder will be denied entry to the Event. We reserve the right to deny entry and to cancel tickets purchased by any person or entity that we reasonably believe to be associated with attempted or actual ticket reselling or transferring.
