Frequently Asked Questions


The following FAQs applied to the Cybersecurity Forum.

What is the registration cancellation policy?

Cancellations received by Wednesday, November 29, are subject to a $250 administrative fee. Notice of cancellation must be received in writing to the ICI Conference Division. After November 29, we regret that no registration fees can be refunded. If you are unable to attend and would like to send a colleague in your place, substitutions can be made and the administrative fee will not be applied. Please contact the ICI Conference division as soon as possible.

Is there a deadline to register for the conference?

No. Registration will remain open online through the duration of the conference and onsite registrations are accepted.

How do I determine if I am eligible to register at the ICI member registration rate?

The “registration type” on your attendee registration should reflect your firm’s membership status at the Investment Company Institute.

ICI member firms consist of mutual fund companies, their investment advisers, and principal underwriters, who purchase and distribute directly or through stockbrokers and security dealers. Unit investment trust sponsors and publicly traded closed-end funds may also be members. Employees of ICI member firms should always choose the member rate.

ICI associate member firms consist of broker-dealers registered with the NASD, and SEC-registered investment advisers who do not manage mutual funds (or subadvisers of mutual funds). Employees of ICI associate member firms may submit up to two registrations at the member rate; additional registrations should be submitted at nonmember rate.

Law firms and accounting firms are not eligible for ICI membership.

If you are uncertain of your firm’s membership status, please contact the ICI Conference division to avoid any possible invoices and registration cancellations.
