Substitution and Cancellation
FinTech Refund Policy
ACAMS FinTech Summit 2022 passes are non-refundable. Pass holders may request a pass transfer to another person, colleague or client up until April 22, 2022.
Covid-19 Policy: At the discretion of ACAMS, pass holders will receive a refund of a conference pass if the pass holder is unable to attend the in-person event, at any time, in San Francisco because the pass holder has been diagnosed with Covid-19 or if government-issued travel restrictions are in place during the event dates. If a pass holder is unable to attend because of the Covid-19 illness, ACAMS reserves the right to request proof of a positive diagnosis. If a pass holder has been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19, a pass transfer to a future in-person event can be made.
Government-issued travel restrictions include:
- The country/state that you live in closes its borders to travel
- The country/state you live in issues advice not to travel to San Francisco, California
- The country/state you live in has imposed an unavoidable quarantine on return from travel
- There is an unavoidable quarantine on arrival in San Francisco, California
- There is a further lockdown phase in the country/state you live in that prevents you from leaving your home except for essential requirements
In the event San Francisco, California announces a return to Covid-19 restrictions, ACAMS will abide by local government and CDC guidelines. Due to new limited seating your conference pass may be subject to change to the next in-person event. Seats will be allocated based on time of purchase.
If the state of California's governing body imposes a new restriction that prohibits ACAMS from holding an in-person event you will be able to transfer your pass to virtual or the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.
Health and Safety Guidelines
ACAMS considers the health and safety of all those on-site at the 2022 ACAMS FinTech Summit as our priority.
ACAMS is offering in-person attendance at the 2022 ACAMS FinTech Summit in San Francisco, California in compliance with local government orders permitting such gatherings at this time. Effective April 1, 2022, San Francisco will align with the State of California’s new guidance and no longer require proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative test to enter our event. Masks can be worn indoors based on personal preference. All attendees and staff are expected to fully comply with applicable safety precautions, such as staying home if exhibiting signs of illness. Masks will be provided for anyone in need of one and sanitization stations will be available throughout the meeting space.
Currently the San Francisco Department of Public Health does not have any restrictions involving capacity limits or large gatherings. However, in the event that hospitalization rates rise, San Francisco County could re-instate capacity limits, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at the 2022 ACAMS FinTech Summit. If this were to occur, you would be notified as to the status of your registration. If state or local capacity restrictions require ACAMS to reduce the number of attendees at the 2022 ACAMS FinTech Summit, and you are unable to attend the event in person, you will be able to transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.
If you test positive for COVID-19 during or after the conference, please contact Sandy Espinosa (SEspinosa@acams.org). They will provide your information to the local health department to support any contact tracing efforts. In accordance with local health department requirements, ACAMS will comply with any contact tracing and/or notification protocols if we are notified that any attendee has tested positive for COVID-19.
