Cornell University is synonymous with hospitality. Its facilities and faculty have been the envy of the industry for decades. In addition, its location provides attendees the luxury of attending a BMI Tactical Leadership program in an Ivy League setting. Students stay at the renowned Statler Hotel, an on-campus training facility for hospitality students.

The registration policy for CMAA's Business Management Institutes (BMI) requires payment by check or processed credit card at the time of registration.

Cancellation or transfer of said registration will be accepted with no penalty until 90 days prior to the start of a BMI program. Any change, cancellation or transfer between 61-90 days from the start of a BMI program will be subject to a 10 percent penalty per registration. Any change, cancellation or transfer 31-60 days prior to the beginning of a BMI program will be subject to a 25 percent penalty per registration. No refund will be given for cancellation nor will transfer be allowed after 5:00 p.m. Eastern time 30 days prior to the start of a program. In the event of a job change to a new club/facility, the cancellation penalty will be waived only if CMAA is able to fill the vacated seat. CMAA does require proof of new employment in order for the cancellation to be approved. Additional fee(s) will be added to any cancellation for expenses already incurred by CMAA for supplemental class materials (i.e., textbooks, notebooks, surveys, etc.). These fees (subject to change) vary based on individual programs and are listed below for your reference:

Any cancellation and/or request to change class date or program must be submitted in writing to the CMAA National Headquarters by the individual whose name appears on the registration. Cancellation by phone or in writing by any party other than the class attendee will not be accepted, regardless of the initial payer; extenuating circumstances in this case will be reviewed by CMAA's Chief Executive Officer (or other HQ staff official).
