Cancellations & Refunds

Cancellation & Refund Policy

Echo Parenting & Education understands that unforeseen circumstances may mean you need to cancel your attendance at an event. If that is the case, please let us know at least 8 days before the event in order to receive a refund. Refund requests received 7 days or less before the event will receive a credit toward a future event.

  • Purchases $30 and under: Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds for purchases $30 or less. Echo will issue a credit to attend a program within a year from the original event date.
  • Purchases over $30 but under $100: A refund (less a $10 processing fee) will be issued if a cancelation has been requested at least 8 days before the event.
  • Purchases over $100: A refund (minus a 10% processing fee) will be issued if a written cancelation was requested at least 8 days before the event.

Event Cancellation: In the situation that Echo Parenting & Education cancels or reschedules an event for any reason, including cancelling an event that does not meet minimum registration requirements or due to speaker unavailability, paid participants will be contacted and given full refunds. Rescheduling information will be posted on our website.

No Show Policy: A “no show” is missing a program without cancelling. Unfortunately we are not able to provide refunds for no shows.

Questions: If you have any questions regarding our cancellation and refund policies, please email us at info@echoparenting.org or call our offices at (213) 484-6676.
