Payment Policies:

IF YOU ARE PAYING BY PURCHASE ORDER: 

To pay by Purchase Order, please select "pay by check" when checking out.  You do NOT have to enter a PO number. An invoice will be automatically generated, and you can access it by going into your account at "MyAAFCS" on the AAFCS website and clicking on "Pay Open Invoices." This will allow you to save and/or print the invoice to pass along to your employer. AAFCS will not automatically generate or send any other invoice--please contact us at annualconf@aafcs.org with any questions or special requests. 

PLEASE NOTE: By May 31st, 2017, AAFCS must receive full payment for all outstanding annual conference registration purchase orders, or registrants intending to pay by purchase order must pay a deposit of $100 PLUS the price of all ticketed events and additional purchases. Registration and all purchases will be cancelled if AAFCS does not receive either the PO payment or this deposit by May 31st. There will be refunds for individual deposits made in place of PO payment once AAFCS receives full PO payment under this policy. There will be no exceptions. 

IF YOU ARE PAYING BY CHECK: 

To pay by personal check, please select "pay by check" when checking out. An invoice will be automatically generated, and you can access it by going into your account at "MyAAFCS" on the AAFCS website and clicking on "Pay Open Invoices." AAFCS will not automatically generate or send any other invoice--please contact us at annualconf@aafcs.org with any questions or special requests. If we do not receive payment in full postmarked within 30 days of registration or postmarked by the applicable registration deadline if it is more than 30 days post-registration dateyou will be responsible for paying the registration rate in effect when payment occurs. For example, if you register at the Early Bird rate and we do not receive payment by the Early Bird deadline or within 30 days of your registration, you will be responsible for paying the higher Advance Registration Rate. If we do not receive full payment for the total amount due (including any fees incurred by missing a registration deadline) by May 31st, your conference registration and all purchases will be considered null and void.
