Before You Sign-up
An Overview of the Registration Form
The 2017 on-line Conference Registration Form is now available. Knowing there are some sections of the Registration Form that require a decision of some kind, we thought it would be beneficial to provide a summary explanation of:
- The On-Line Registration Process - How does it work?
- The Content of the Registration Form - What information is required?
On-Line Registration Process: Since you are filling in an on-line form, there is no need to download or upload any forms. Just start typing. Once you complete your registration and click the "submit" button, two electronic responses are initiated.
First, a confirmation email is generated and sent to the email address appearing on the Registration Form. This is an important address since it will become the default address GFI will use to send conference updates and notices. The email includes a copy of your registration form, the conference cost for your family based upon the information provided, and payment instructions based upon the payment options selected.
Second, you will immediately be transferred to the Growing Families International PayPal screen. We will speak more about the PayPal screen in Section Six below. Please note that no payment is required prior to the submission of this registration. However, a payment is necessary to move your registration to an "Active Status" and be considered "Fully Registered."
Registration Form Content: Section by Section
Section One: You will be asked to review the pricing associated with the two types of lodging accommodation. They are motel style rooms, and RV sites with full 30 and 50 amp hookups.
Section Two: Fill in the Family Profile Information
Section Three: This is where you select your accommodation - Motel Style Room or RV site.
Section Four: Based on the accommodation selected, you will now be asked to fill in the number of family members attending the conference. (Your children’s registration is based on their age as of August 2, 2017.) As you add each person, you will notice the running cost appearing on the top right of your registration.
Section Five: Here you will be asked to review each section above to ensure all related boxes are correct, including the accuracy of the conference cost associated with your family, the preferred email address to receive conference updates and best mobile number for conference week alerts.
Section Six: In this section, you will be asked to select the payment method that is best for your family. You can review the various payment options --> HERE
Section Seven: Submit Your Registration. After clicking the "Submit" button, you will be redirected to a PayPal Screen. If you are paying by check or with the installment plan, just close the page and exit the registration process. Within a few seconds, you will receive an email confirmation, a copy of your registration and directions for sending in your payment or setting up your installment plan.
Conference Registration closes July 21, 2017.
