What is the organization’s no show policy and why is it implemented?
100 Women in Hedge Funds does not charge its members entrance fees for attending events. It does not pay hosts, speakers, or volunteers who offer their time and resources to organize these events. Consequently, we believe that a nominal fee ($25 for U.S. and Cayman Island events, $25CAD for Canadian events, £20 for U.K. events, CHF30 for Swiss events, €20 for Euro-zone country events and $200HKD for Hong Kong events) charged to members who register for an event but cannot or do not attend - granted fully and directly to a charitable cause - is fair. We thank you in advance for honoring this policy.

What should I do if I register for an event but cannot attend?

If you cannot attend please let us know as soon as possible. For most events, there is a modest “no show” fee which is donated to the current beneficiary of the organization’s fundraising efforts.

Do I still have to pay the no-show fee if I give notice well in advance?
Yes. Events are planned and arranged through the generous volunteer work of of 100WHF members; these members also have full time jobs. Please note that we often have more than 1,000 emails in connection with every event. We thus do not have the capacity to track cancellations and find replacements.

Do I still have to pay the no show fee if I find someone to replace me at the event?
Yes, unfortunately, we are not equipped to handle substitutions.

What happens if I do not pay the no show fee in a timely manner?
Should you not remit your no show fee in a timely manner, you will not be permitted to register for future events.
