CANCELLATION POLICY 

As you register for the National Leadership and Skills Conference please be aware that SkillsUSA Georgia has a no cancellation policy. This means that if you submit registration for a conference and cannot attend then we are not able to issue a registration refund. This is because we base purchasing items off of our registration numbers. 

Further, any inability to compete on the competition date will disqualify any competitors. No refunds will be issued. However, if the competitor tests positive for COVID-19 or is affected by COVID-19, we ask that you inform the State Office and we will work with you regarding issuing a refund. Documentation that the competitor tests positive and is quarantining is required in order for a refund to be issued. 

In addition, no substitutions can be made unless a student is impacted by COVID-19. The COVID Reserve list is for students who have tested positive or are quarantined because of close contact with someone who has tested positive. You can find the COVID Reserve form here.
