The Program Team has received several requests from volunteers asking for online or walk-in registrations. We hope to be able to offer online registrations at some point in the future. In the meantime, we want to make event registration as easy and equitable as possible. Therefore, we have adopted new registration guidelines. One major change is the method for submitting registrations. Starting today, the completed Event Registration Form may be mailed, faxed, e-mailed or delivered in person to the appropriate service center specified in the event description.
Another change will be the way that we process registrations. Event registrations will be collected and date stamped on a daily basis. When the number of date stamped registrations exceeds the number of spaces still available for the event, the registrations received that day will be entered into a random drawing for the remaining spaces.
The final change is that a penalty will be added on late registrations. Most of the programs that we offer are facilitated by volunteers or other non-profit agencies. A lot of effort, money, and especially lead time goes into planning these activities. Many times we have to cancel events because we do not have sufficient registrations by the deadline date the facilitators have requested. Therefore, starting today, if an event registration is received after the deadline, a penalty fee of an additional 10% of the entire registration fee must be paid before the registration will be processed.
