Under the NYSRPS Event Cancellation Policy 

As posted on nysrps, no refunds within 30 days are given. Unfortunately, this will be enforced with CPSI. NRPA charges the Society for the number confirmed regardless who is in actual attendance so the instructor's travel and compensation is covered. In the event of a COVID illness, documentation may be required for a refund. We thank you for your understanding. 

Lodging is up to you. is a great way to search for options that satisfy your budget.
