We hope that you and your loved ones were not impacted during the recent Hurricane Matthew. The Board of Directors of NCPTA is aware of the concerns of some registered attendees regarding the ability to attend the 2016 Fall Conference in Greensboro given the adverse weather and associated events. We, as the Board of Directors, will be reviewing the concerns expressed regarding requests for refunds or credits during the conference. Our position will be posted as soon afterward as possible, but please note that the conference is going on as planned without a schedule change at this time, and that the Association is in a contractual agreement for use of the venue. Any updates will be posted on the NCPTA website ( and on the NCPTA Facebook page. Thank you for your understanding.


***UPDATE AS OF 10/13/2016***
The NCPTA BOD has met and discussed developing a position statement regarding refunds for those who are unable to attend due to Hurricane Matthew.  NCPTA will consider requests from those who reside in zip codes designated by the NC Governor as disaster areas or areas in a state of emergency.  Your request should include your contact information including your email address and postal address.  Please state the reason for your request for a refund.  Your request must be postmarked or email date stamped by October 25, 2016.  Based upon the number of approved requests, we will determine the amount of refunds to be provided.  You will be notified by email upon determination of the status of your request.  Refunds will be provided as soon as possible but no later than 6-8 weeks from the receipt of the request.  We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and recover quickly from the damage caused by the storm.
