AZNPC monthly Educational event new RSVP rules effective January 2015

Posted over 4 years ago by Katie Wall

In an effort to decrease the no-show rate on RSVP's (which ranges from 30-50%) in the past one and a half years, the AZNPC will now begin enforcing attendance. The no show rate costs the AZNPC and pharmaceutical industry money for seats that are purchased and not filled. We have new technology with the website that collects data as of November 2014. After the event, the sign in sheet will be uploaded to the website. If you do not sign in at the event on the AZNPC sign in list, then you will be registered as a "no show" on the website. Signing in on the pharmaceutical sign in list will not count for the AZNPC sign in list. There are always 2 sign in lists. It is your responsibility to ensure you sign both.

We will allow 3 "no shows" with the registration before restricting your RSVP in the future. If you RSVP for an event, the system sends you an email confirmation. On the email confirmation, there is a tab to cancel your RSVP. The system also sends out a reminder email several days before the event. On both of these emails, you can click cancel. You can also cancel by returning to the website and finding event, click cancel.

Thank you for your support by attending these events. Thank you to the regional educational volunteers who help to setup these events. If you would like to speak as an expert on a topic in one of these regions, please contact one of the volunteer's below.
