If District Business Office or Administrative Staff is Registering You:
When district staff completes registration and payment for an attendee, we often experience a disconnect between the payment we receive and for whom the payment was made. To enable us to make that connection more accurately, we need the district staff member who is completing registration forms or arranging payment to identify themselves by completing ITEM "A" on the Registration form. 

PAYMENTS received after September 25, 2017 will incur a $75 late registration fee, so we suggest you use a personal or district credit card to avoid being charged this additional amount. CAWEE will invoice registrants for any late fees incurred.
