FAQ

How do I register for the conference?

Conference registration is available online only.

What are my payment options?

Conference registrations must be paid either through credit card, district purchase order, or check. Purchase orders will incur a $20 processing fee per PO request. When you register online you must either pay with a credit card or indicate you will pay with a district PO. A PO is not required at the time of registration, your district will be sent an invoice and payment is due within 30 days. We strongly recommend credit card payments.

Can I request a refund for my conference registration fee?

We consider a counselor registered when the counselor has registered online, and he/she has submitted a check, credit card, or PO for payment for his/her registration.  Registration cancellations will be accepted up to January 7, 2019, less a $25 cancellation fee. No registration cancellations will be accepted after January 7, 2019.

What if my district purchase order does not come through?

When you register for the conference, you are accepting personal responsibility for full payment of the registration fee in the event that the PO goes unfunded from your district.

Can I request a colleague to attend in my place?

If you have registered for the conference and no longer can attend, you may have one of your co-workers attend in your place. You will need to contact the conference coordinator at conference@azsca.org with your contact information at least a week prior to the conference.

I did not pick up my certificate of attendance at the conference. Can I still get one?

No. Certificates must be picked up during between 2:50pm and 3:30pm on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. Only the attendee may pick up the certificate (i.e., you can't pick up a certificate for your friend). AzSCA does not maintain certificates for any past conferences.

Why do I need my membership number on my registration form?

AzSCA needs to verify your membership records so we can extend our membership discount rates to our current members. This is one of the many advantages of becoming a member of the association.

What meals are provided during the AzSCA Spring Conference?

Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days of the main conference (February 4-5). Drinks and reception-style food will be provided at the Happy Hour on February 4. Dinner during the main conference days is not be provided, however, there are many dining options in the hotel and in the Fountain Hills area to allow you to take the time and network with friends and colleagues.

How long are the sessions?

Each conference session is 50 minutes long.

What is the dress code?

There is no official dress code at the AzSCA Conference. You are encouraged to wear whatever is comfortable to you. We have had attendees come dressed in shorts and t-shirts and some in full business attire. Most attendees, however, tend to wear business casual during the day. 

Do you have to attend all days of the conference?

Although you do not need to attend the full conference, it is strongly encouraged as each day is jammed pack with informational sessions, networking opportunities, and educational sessions. By staying for the entire conference you will interact with other professional school counselors to learn best practices, as well as network with vendor representatives, educational partners and our keynote speakers.

How many presenters are allowed to present in one session?

We respectfully ask that each session is lead by a maximum of two presenters.
