We are so excited that you are considering joining us this year!
Registration opens on Friday, December 1, 2017 and closes on Thursday, February 1, 2018 — so mark your calendar in order to avoid any late fee. Convention itself is Thursday, March 1, 2018.
We continually seek to keep costs as low as possible while providing the students with a rich and memorable experience. This year, we were able to reduce the fee to $10 per student. This fee funds the general functioning of the Convention (awards, prizes, and scholarship monies) and covers all costs associated with the University of Alabama hosting the event. Additionally, each participant receives a student-designed Convention t-shirt, so be sure to have all your numbers/sizes handy when you go to fill out the registration form!
Late Registration Policy
Due to planning and printing constraints, late registrations create extra work for those running the Convention. Any club registering late (after Thursday, February 1) for Convention or for any competition will incur a penalty fee of $25. No late registrations or changes will be accepted after Monday, February 12, 2018. Thank you in advance for respecting this year’s deadline!
Cancellation & Refund Policy
A full refund is available if the cancellation occurs on or before the registration deadline. Click here to cancel if registered before February 1, 2018.
After the registration deadline, a 50% refund is available IF the club is prohibited from attending due to inclement weather. Click here to cancel/request a refund.
If a club’s sponsor is unable to accompany the students, another teacher is encouraged to bring the registered students to Convention instead.
By popular demand, we have simplified the registration process! There is only one (1) form to fill out. It will walk you through the registration process for Convention and ALL competitions. Please familiarize yourself with this form well ahead of time (right now, par exemple) so as not to be caught off-guard when you complete it. The link to the form is at the bottom of this page. You will notice that you must have all information ready when you register: participant count, t-shirt sizes, titles and description for oral competitions, etc. But the form should allow you to enter some data, save it, then complete/submit it later.
Your Convention registration is not complete until payment has been received. The registration form will calculate the amount for you, but at $10 per student, the math is straightforward (if registering on-time). You cannot pay online. Please send a check payable to the AFFC postmarked by the same Thursday, February 1 deadline to the President Club’s sponsor at the following address:
Mrs. Allison Ramey
The Altamont School
4801 Altamont Road South
Birmingham, AL 35222
