Any community member can create an idea or curate an event on the Insurance Discourse Platform. The event is not official until it is greenlighted which means a minimum number of attendees have registered for the event. The minimum is typical 15 for a 25-40 person capacity event.
Registrant credit cards don't get billed for the event until it is greenlighted. Members who register after an event is greenlighted will get charged at the point of their registration.
Events that are not greenlighted 5 days prior to event date are canceled.
