    Conference registration

    This may sound silly - but I was wondering if I registered for leadership conference, and it turns out that I cannot go. Will I get my money back? I'd much rather pay the early bird price! I will only go if my husband's schedule allows. He is in the army so sometimes asking his commanders...
