If PMT Staff is ill then arrangements will be made to hopefully provide coverage by another PMT Staff Member. If not, then club will have make-up date. Failure to give 24-hour notice as outlined above will result in a “No Show” fee being added to your account. Your instructor will wait at least ten minutes after the scheduled workshop time, before declaring the meeting a “no show.”
