Meeting Cancellation Policy

In the event the CCA Healthcare Meeting is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of its sponsors (i.e. fire, strikes, terrorist attacks, acts of God, etc.), all refunds exclude charges for prepaid fixed expenses.

Photography and Videography Policy

Registration for, attendance at, or participation in the meeting, and any ancillary CCA-sponsored meetings/seminars constitutes an agreement by the registrant/attendee or participant to permit the CCA to use and distribute (both now and in the future) the registrant’s, attendee’s or participant’s image in photographs, electronic productions, or other electronic marketing by the sponsor(s).

No Session Recording

No sessions are recorded. As a condition of your attendance at the meeting, you agree not to audio or video record any portion of the educational sessions held at the meeting. Any violation of this condition may result in your ejection from the meeting without a refund of your registration fee. In addition, you agree that the CCA shall be entitled to any costs incurred as a result of any violation of this provision, including payment of CCA’s attorneys’ fees. Violators may be prohibited from attending future meetings/events.

Antitrust Policy

Professional societies are subject to federal and state antitrust laws, and must constantly monitor their activities to ensure continued compliance with all antitrust regulations. This policy is published to: (1) inform the participants of the CCA Healthcare Meeting of the purpose of antitrust laws; (2) provide guidance to compliance at all meetings sponsored by the CCA; and (3) emphasize the intent of the CCA, through the Board of Directors, to adhere to the law.

The Purpose of Antitrust Laws

The antitrust laws prohibit any concerted activity or combination of competitors from interfering with free competition. In other words, the primary thrust of the law is to control private economic power by protecting competition. Persons and organizations are prohibited from engaging in any action which unreasonably restrains commerce or trade (i.e., competition). Per se violations (practices presumed to be inherently wrong regardless of the motivating factors) include: agreements to fix or stabilize prices, to divide markets, to allocate production, or to impose boycotts. In essence, any concerted action that significantly diminishes rivalry among competing firms.
