Multiple Registration Discount
If your organization is a member of the Council on Foundations and three
people from your organization pay the full conference fee ($750), additional
members of your organization who register at the same time as the first
three will receive the multiple registration discount ($650). Registration forms
and payment must be received by August 5, 2011.
Guest and Student Registration
Guest registration is available for spouses and partners of full conference attendees and includes all meals, plenary sessions, and the networking event.
Students and recent graduates from accredited educational institutions may be eligible to attend our conference for a special student rate that includes access to all conference programming.
Students should complete the registration process and include a letter with area of study, anticipated graduation date, and the reason for attending the conference. Students who are affiliated with an organization that is a Council member should register through the organization.
The Council is pleased to extend the member rate to all members of Council-recognized
affinity groups, whether they are Council members or not. Additionally,
the Council will pay Council-recognized affinity groups $100 for
every registered fall conference participant who is one of their members but
not a Council member and who registers for the conference using the appropriate
discount code. If your foundation would like to take advantage of this
initiative and if your foundation is a member of a Council-recognized affinity
group but not a member of the Council, please contact your affinity group to
receive the appropriate discount code.
Nonmembers must pay nonmember registration fees. Pending membership
applications or applications sent with the registration form do not qualify for
registration at the member rate. If you pay the nonmember fee for the conference
and your Council membership is approved by December 31, 2011, the difference
between member and nonmember conference fees will be credited
toward your organization's dues payment. Please call the Membership Services
staff at 703-879-0645 for more information.
