    Attendance Policy: Due to the format of the ALGTI courses, a series of speakers on related topics delivered over a two-day period, it is the policy of the ALGTI Board that the entire course must be taken in order to receive full credit. A commissioner who misses any portion of a course will be required to retake the course in its entirety in order to receive credit for the course; provided, however, that the ALGTI Board may approve an absence of one (1) hour or less if extenuating circumstances exist as determined by the Board.

    Participation: All program attendees are encouraged to benefit fully from the course by asking questions, relating experiences and thoughts, and otherwise ensure that they understand and can apply techniques and ideas offered by the instructor.

    Telephone Messages: Emergency or important telephone messages may be called in during the day to the Center for Governmental Services (334) 844-4782. The class will not be interrupted, except for emergency calls.

    Classroom Regulations: Cell phones should be reserved for use during classroom breaks, and shall be turned off or set to vibrate, silent or discrete mode during class time. If the commissioner must take an emergency phone call, they shall take the call outside of the classroom. The class will not be interrupted, except for emergency calls. Use of tobacco  products of any kind are not permitted in the classroom or areas not designated for their use.

    Meals: Individuals will be responsible for their own meal arrangements. However, the registration fee includes lunch on Tuesday, December 4th. Additional Luncheon tickets may be purchased for $35.00.

    Cancellation Policy: Provided that space is available, receipt of the registration form constitutes registration. Written cancellations, received fifteen (15) working days prior to the beginning of the program (on or before November 9th) will be honored with a partial refund, less a $50 administrative cancellation processing fee. Due to commitments to instructors and meeting facilities, late cancellations or non-attendance will not be refunded.
