Why are cancellations not offered after March 29th? 

As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, NextUp unfortunately does not have the flexibility to absorb the unexpected cost of cancellations after our cutoff date. Offering refunds at that time would negatively impact our ability to deliver on our mission, and to create events like NextUp Rising Stars learning program. 

Why are transfers not allowed after March 29th? 

Rising Stars is a robust learning program that includes assessments and coaching. We are unable to transfer a person after March 29th as assessments are ordered for the participant and coaching assignments are made. To preserve the quality of experience for each participant and their groups, we are unable to make changes to the roster after 3/29/23. 

As no goods or services are provided for registrations that go unused after March 29th, you may contact us to request that your registration fee be converted into a tax-deductible charitable donation to NextUp if you are unable to use your registration. Please contact connect@nextupisnow.org for more information. 


Hotel rooms and block rates are on a first-come, first-served basis from the opening of Rising Stars registration. We recommend booking as soon as possible after registration to avoid any issues with securing accommodations. Please note that the hotel room block and rates are limited and first come, first served.
