Registration Policies


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 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 2015 membership year. Dues are not pro-rated.

Registration Policy:
Every attendee must register for the conference to attend a conference function, including sessions, meals, and in-depth sessions. You have the choice of purchasing a full conference OR one-day registration for you and your spouse/guest.  Please see explanations below on what is included with each registration type.

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 addition, a portion of each room night is rebated by the hotel to NEAFCS to help underwrite the costs of the conference. Registration fees were calculated based on NEAFCS meeting our guarantee and receiving rebates. Attendees opting to stay elsewhere will be assessed a $300 fee to offset the lost rebate revenue and 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.
