Space for all events is limited, especially for the bus trips, house tours, and Sunday brunch. 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 10, full refunds will be given for all cancellations. From August 10 to October 9, refunds will be given less a processing fee of $100 per person. After October 10, 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.


  • Tickets and FASA badges are required for all events.
  • Buses will depart from and return to the Hotel Francis Marion. The cost of bus transportation is included in each ticket. No discount is allowed for driving your own car.
  • Advance reservations are required, and tickets are limited for each event. If a tour is full, a waiting list will be maintained, and no exceptions will be made. Please note refund policy as stated above.
