This conference has sold out 6 years in a row. Every year it sells our earlier and earlier. We can never guess when we will reach capacity, but in years past we’ve been sold out by mid May.
Due to limited space and high demand, we can not hold spaces. Registration will not confirmed until payment or a purchase order is received. If you register without submitting payment, and your payment is not received by the deadline stipulated on your confirmation, your spot will be released to another. Note that if you have not paid by the date of a scheduled rate increase, your registration fee will increase to the current posted rate.
Due to limited capacity and high demand for this conference, we are unable to allow registration for individual days. Allowing partial registration could potentially prevent another teacher from attending the entire conference. Conference capacity is set for the overall conference, not for each day. Once we reach capacity, we close registration, and that means that a partial registration would eliminate someone who registered later from participating. If we have not reached capacity a week before the conference, we may allow partial registration on a case-by-case basis.
To keep conference costs fair and at a minimum for all participants, we are unable to offer any discounts, regardless of your country of residency. Put another way, the cost to put on a conference of this magnitude is the same no matter where participants come from.
If you cancel on or before May 31, 2021, you will be assessed a cancellation fee of $50 per person. No refunds, FOR ANY REASON, after May 31, 2021.
After May 31, a $25 service will apply to any registration that is transferred to a new attendee. Before registration can be transferred, the change fee payment must be received by Fluency Matters via credit card by calling (800) 877-4738.
Once you have registered, you will have until May 31, 2021 to make changes to your registration. After May 31, 2021, a $25 service will apply to any change(s) made to your registration. Once you submit your registration and your registration is processed (2 business days), a $10 fee will apply for any changes to your conference registration. After June 15, 2021, NO changes to your conference registration will be allowed. WHY?… Because conference organizers immediately begin analyzing your registration information to carefully place each participant in the most appropriate group. This takes an enormous amount of time, and each shift we make to one’s registration can have a domino effect on our grouping of cohorts. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
We strongly encourage you to carefully select your cohort BEFORE you register.
If you are uncertain of your cohort level, please use this self-placement guide.
If someone else is registering you online, please fill out the paper form so that they have accurate information when completing your registration.
All sessions and workshops will have a variety of handouts, which will be available to attendees. Each presenter will provide his/her own unique handouts.
