Hardship Registration

SME Hardship Registration Policy

At SME we understand that difficult times in the industry or within your organization can make travel to our event challenging. We have created a special registration to aid our talented industry professionals in attending the 2019 SME Annual Conference & Expo and CMA 121st National Western Mining Conference.

SME has created a one-time, complimentary hardship registration option for the SME Annual Conference & Expo available to SME Members only. This option is limited to 150 members and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Qualified candidates are members who are unemployed or otherwise unable to pay full registration fees, and are not receiving any type of company reimbursement for meeting expenses. Authors and session chairs are given preference.

Members must submit a request in writing disclosing the circumstances for the hardship request no later than January 28, 2019 to be considered. Please submit an email request to meetings@smenet.org or fax to 303.979.3461, Attn: Meetings - SME ACE 2019 Hardship Member Application.
