Events Policy:

Only those refund requests submitted to CRD Headquarters in writing thirty (30) days before the start of the event will be considered. Absolutely no event or conference fees may be refunded after thirty (30) days prior to the start of the event. No exceptions.

A refund processing fee determined annually by the board may be applied. All refunds will be processed after the event takes place.

Membership Policy:

Membership dues are non-refundable. No Exceptions. However, they are transferable to other individuals at your institution. Contact the national office to let us know you need your membership transferred and we will take care of it.

Publications Policy:

Products purchased from our Publications section are NOT refundable, but may be exchanged within 30-days from date of purchase. The product to be exchanged may only be exchanged for Publications sold by CRD of the same value. To obtain an exchange, you must notify CRD, within 30 days of your original purchase date, that you desire to exchange the product purchased. The customer must return to CRD a exchange claim request along with the product being exchanged.

In order to exchange, you must provide your correct e-mail address and/or mailing address to CRD. CRD will not be liable for any claims of non-receipt of merchandise, and/or non-receipt of a exchange claim request that was a result of an incorrect email address and/or mailing address provided by you to CRD. The customer is responsible for providing a correct/working e-mail address.

Fraudulent Credit Card Charges or Fraudulent Claims:

All requests to negate charges are investigated by our technical department and legal department.

"Being a new Executive Director of a Community College Foundation I have found the resources available to me through CRD to be invaluable. 

The conferences I have attended and the interaction with my colleagues from across the country have immensely accelerated my learning curve.

Thank you CRD for the role that you play in helping me positively affect the students of GRCC!"
