Registration Policies

Membership:
If you are eligible for membership but not currently a NEAFCS member, you may join now and get the member rate for the Annual Session. A new member application can be found at www.neafcs.org/join-neafcs. Dues, which are $100, are based on a calendar year and not pro-rated. So, please keep in mind that your membership will be valid for the 2017 membership year. Dues are not pro-rated.

Facility Fee
To obtain complimentary meeting rooms and function space, NEAFCS has guaranteed that our attendees will utilize a specific number of sleeping rooms. If our attendees do not utilize the guaranteed number of sleeping rooms, NEAFCS will have to pay attrition fees. In order to offer the lowest registration fees possible, NEAFCS needs your help to ensure we don't incur additional hotel fees. Registration fees were calculated based on NEAFCS meeting its guarantee. You must book your hotel room BEFORE you register for the conference. You will be required to enter your confirmation number. Attendees opting to stay elsewhere may be assessed a $300 fee to offset the incurred hotel attrition. When making your hotel reservation, you must book your room under the NEAFCS Room Block. Each person sharing a room must appear on the hotel rooming list and pay the appropriate double, triple, or quad room rate to avoid the facility fee. The facility fee is waived for local affiliate members commuting daily to the conference.
