Refunds, Transfers, and Rollovers

“What do I do if I find out I can’t attend after all?”

Refunds

Anime Los Angeles doesn’t refund memberships while the member lives. If you pass away before the convention, your family can write to us to get a refund of your membership fees. (Yes, I know it sounds morbid, but it does happen occasionally.)

Transfers and Rollovers

Anime Los Angeles offers two programs to help the fan who pays for a membership and then learns (before the convention) that they’ll be unable to attend. Can’t get the time off, you have to do something with your family, your unit gets sent overseas… whatever the reason.

First, you can transfer the membership to someone else. Write us a letter giving us your name — include your postcard if you have one — and the name and address of the person you’re transferring it to. Mail it to our usual P.O. Box address. Or if you’re pressed for time, hand the letter to the person who’s going to use your membership and have them bring it to the Pre-Reg Desk.

And second, you can roll your membership over to next year once. Just let us know before the convention that you won’t be attending and you’d like your membership rolled over to the next year, and we’ll move you out of this year’s database and put you on next year’s list.
