Will there be a Webcast of the convention?
No. We have stopped doing webcasts because there haven't been enough subscribers, and the district was losing money on them.
Do I need to create an account before I make a purchase?
Yes, in order to register, you must create an account on this website. This is only necessary the first time you register for an event on this site; when you register for another event in the future, you may use the same account.
Only the person making the registration needs to create an account. For example, if the Chapter Secretary or Treasurer is registering the entire chorus, or of the Quartet Contact man is registering for the entire quartet, only the person making the registration needs to create an account.
Another benefit of creating an account is that you will have the ability to log on at a later date and see if you are registered – and even reprint your eTicket vouchers! That's because the registration is tied to your account.
Do you accept credit/debit cards?
Yes! We accept debit or credit cards from VISA, MasterCard, Ameriican Express, and Discover.
What information do you require?
The basic information needed for all orders is your name, email address, and telephone number, in case we need to contact you. For events registration, we may also ask for your voice part, chapter, and other information needed to prepare your name badge.
Do you store my credit card information?
Absolutely NOT! We use Square for credit card processing. When make your payment, your information is sent to Square through a secure, encrypted connection, and Square handles the payment processing. We simply get a response back from Square whether your payment was successful, and take it from there. Your personal credit information is never stored on our site.
Is it safe to use my credit card to make a purchase online?
Absolutely! We use Square, which is one of the leading and most secure forms on online payments.
Can I pay using PayPal?
No. We have discontunued using PayPal as our payment gateway. We have switch to using Stripe which is much easier to use, and accepts all major credit cards.
Why did you stop using PayPal?
Simply put, because it was NOT user friendly. We received many complaints about the PayPal screens being confusing and too complicated.
We heard you, loud and clear, and we agree!
In an effort to continuously improve to make this site easy for our members to use, we have chosen Stripe as our payment gateway, and we feel it is a much better solution.
What is your policy on privacy?

Do you give discounts?
Certain events have discounts, such as "Early-Bird" registration. These are automatically applied as you make your registration.
How do I register for an event?
Please see related HELP document: HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE CONVENTION.
Can I register for someone else?
Yes! While the person purchasing the registration is often one of the "participants" in the registration, they don't have to be. It's also very common that a chapter secretary or treasurer may register members of the chorus, even though he may not be one of the participants in that registration. So if you would like to register for a friend, by all means do so!
