— Terry Lindley, Vice President, Marketing & Sales, American AgCredit

Only six enrollments will be accepted in the two-day workshop. Each enrollment must be paid in full to reserve a seat. After six enrollments are confirmed, a wait list will be started.

Regarding Cancellation:

If you have to cancel your participation, please notify us (and confirm that your message was received) as soon as possible.

You may substitute your seat with another person with no penalty.

If you cancel more than 4 weeks before the workshop starts and do not provide a substitute, we will honor a refund minus a $150.00 cancel fee.

If you cancel less than 4 weeks before the program, you will receive a one-year credit voucher for attendance at a future program. There will be a $250.00 transfer fee if your cancelled seat is not filled.

Since we take only six participants in each workshop we often have a wait list. We will try to fill your seat with this resource if at all possible.

We understand that enrolled people at this business level have emergencies and plans need to change. However, when we work with only six participants, an open seat is a mutual loss. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

If for any reason Success Strategies must cancel a class, attendees would receive a full refund.
