Cancellation Policy: All cancellations must be submitted in writing. In the event that a sponsor notifies WRPA of the sponsor's intent to repudiate the contract after acceptance, a refund of monies received, less a $100 cancellation fee will be made, up to 30 days after payment. If the sponsor intends to repudiate their contract more than 30 days after paying a penalty of $200 of the cost of the total sponsorship contracted will be imposed. In the event that the association has to cancel an event due to unforeseen circumstances, WRPA will work with the sponsor to come to a mutually agreeable resolution to provide equivalent benefits through other means or provide a refund if such an agreement cannot be made.
