To our valued Symposium guests, speakers, sponsors, vendors, partners and volunteers:

This is in accordance with the most recent direction to limit the size of gatherings in an effort to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19.
Guests and vendors, we are committed to providing you a refund for your full payment amount. Please allow approximately four weeks for refunds. Payments made via credit card will be refunded back to the card. Check payments will be issued a refund check.
NOTE: If you reserved your own hotel room at St. Louis Union Station, you are responsible for cancelling the reservation.
We understand that your decision to attend Symposium may have been driven by the opportunity to earn continuing education credits, and we want to ensure you’re still able to do so. In partnership with CE4Chiros.com Logan offers postgraduate programs whereinparticipants can register for on-demand, online classes taught by qualified instructors. Visit https://www.ce4chiros.com/ for more information about available postgraduate seminars.
