Registration and Refund Policy

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The deadline for conference registration is November 1, 2015. Registrations are not complete until full payment is received in the Folk Art Society office.

Payment by PayPal is accepted, as well as by personal check. Charge orders (by PayPal only) may be sent by utilizing the FASA secure Website 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 September 15, full refunds will be given for all cancellations. From September 15 to October 31, refunds will be given less a processing fee of $100 per person. After October 31, 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.
