Members of Alpha Kappa Psi, their guests, and guests of the organization are eligible for registration for many of AKPsi’s events. Registration for specific events may be limited to various roles within the organization. 

Badge sharing, splitting and reprints are strictly prohibited. 

Confirmation 

After you secure your registration online, you will receive an electronic confirmation from Alpha Kappa Psi. The confirmation will include event date, location, travel reminders, balance due, payment instructions, and support contact information. Please bring your confirmation to event check-in.

Agreement 

Attendees will adhere to the fraternity’s conduct policies on alcohol and controlled substances, sexual harassment, hazing, fire/health safety, and publication of inappropriate materials. Attendees are encouraged to read and review the conduct policies prior to attendance.  

Attendees also agree to attend all portions of the educational programming. I understand once I commit to attending if I should cancel for any reason after the cancellation deadline, I will incur the penalty for non-attendance specific to the event, and shall reimburse the fraternity for related expenses, specifically those which have already been reimbursed (e.g. airline ticket).  

Liability Waiver 

Attendees acknowledge an inherent risk of exposure to Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) exists in any public place where people are present. By attending an in-person event hosted by Alpha Kappa Psi, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Alpha Kappa Psi or the event location, or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury. 

Furthermore, you agree to abide by all applicable COVID-19-related requirements, advisories, policies, procedures, and protocols of the event location and AKPsi, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of the event location, and any other governmental authority for the duration of the event.

Consent Clause 

Permission is hereby granted for the taking of photographs and videos to be used for instructional and/or promotional purposes by the Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi Foundation, and related entities. Observation will be used as part of the data we collect from the event (e.g. watching how individuals participate, when they are engaged/disengaged, etc.). This data will be used for improvement of the programming content. Your registration may include technology to track your individual session attendance and session feedback. 

Our Guarantee

Commonly asked questions:

  1. What is the cancellation policy in the event members become more concerned with their health and safety due to the pandemic?
    • Registrants may cancel their registration for Pathways should they become concerned about a rise in COVID-19 cases. Registrants wishing to cancel must email Aysia Lewis at alewis@akpsi.org or education@akpsi.org to cancel your registration.
  2. Will the same fees be applied for canceling?
    • If the registrant reserved their flight outside of the travel system (TripEasy), the registrant (or chapter) will be invoiced for the cost of the flight. If they booked through TripEasy, the registrant may be billed any cancellation fee imposed by TripEasy.
    • If a registrant fails to attend and has not cancelled, the no-show fee, plus the flight cost is invoiced to the individual or chapter.
  3. What happens if a member is unable to attend these fraternity events due to becoming positive with COVID or are in a quarantining period due to exposure?
    • If a registrant tests positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event start date, please email Aysia Lewis at alewis@akpsi.org  or education@akpsi.org to cancel the registration. A copy of the positive test results (dated within the 14-day window) will be required to waive any cancellation fee.
  • Hotel rooms are not included in the registration rate.
  • AKPsi has a block of rooms reserved for its members and guests through each hotel’s reservation cutoff date. Room types (especially those sleeping four to a room) are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Provided there are remaining guest rooms in our block after the cut-off-date, the hotel will continue to accept reservations at the special rate. Once the block is full, whether it is before or after the cut-off date, regular hotel rates will be in effect.
  • Attendees are responsible for contacting the hotel directly to arrange accommodations. All guests must provide debit/credit card for the reservation and a photo ID on-site at each hotel in order to check-in and receive keys to their rooms.
