Registration and Refund Policy

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The deadline for conference registration is September 15. Registrations are not complete until full payment is received in the Folk Art Society office.

Payment by PayPal, Visa or MasterCard is accepted, as well as by personal check. Charge orders may be sent by telephone or by utilizing the FASA secure Website order form at Look under “Conference” for information and order form.

Space for all events is limited, especially for the bus trips and house tours, and reservations will be made in the order received. If you are placed on a waiting list and do not get a place on a tour, your money will be refunded after the conference. If sufficient reservations are not made for a tour, it may be canceled.

Until August 1, full refunds will be given for all cancellations. From August 1 to September 15, refunds will be given less a processing fee of $100 per person. After September 15, no refunds will be given for any reason. This rule is necessary because the society is financially and contractually obligated for the buses, hotel and catered events.
