Can I fill in the form on my Mac computer?
If you open the file using Preview, the default application for PDFs, you will experience problems with drop-downs and auto-calculation of amounts. However, you can download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader for Mac (try looking at www.adobe.com) and with that you will be able to complete the form.
What meals are included with the seminar registration?
Registration for the full seminar (any combination of 3 day classes or Studio Time) includes lunch Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and the Banquet on Friday night.
What if I have dietary restrictions?
Please indicate your needs on the registration form. Although we cannot accommodate dietary preferences we do need to verify any dietary restrictions such as food allergies, diabetes, vegetarian, religious etc. Limit this to dietary restrictions only. Thank you for understanding.
What if the class I selected does not fill and needs to be cancelled?
Classes may be cancelled in the event of insufficient enrollment, teacher illness, or any other emergency as may be determined by the Seminar 2018 committee. In the event the class must be cancelled, every effort will be made to place the student in their next choice. Any travel cost or other commitments incurred by the student made to attend seminar, will be the sole responsibility of the student.
What if I must cancel?
If you must cancel, your class and kit fees will be refunded until April 13, 2018. The $60 registration fee and the $80 non-member fee are non-refundable. Please refer to the Registration Information page 1 for the full description of our cancellation policy.
How and when will I be notified of which classes I will be in?
For those who are registered by September 15, 2017, the class selection notification and invoice with the total amount due, including kit fees, will be sent via email (unless you have checked the box on the registration form to pay $3 to receive your information by the US Postal Service) on October 1, 2017. If you register after this date, the class selection notification will be sent via email (again, unless you checked the box for US Postal Service) as registrations are processed.
Class Angels and First Timers
What is a Class Angel?
This is a student who volunteers to assist the teacher with such things as taking roll, distributing class kits and supplies, etc. The Angel is not expected to assist in any teaching capacity and will not be expected to lift or carry heavy boxes. An Angel might need to help with any additional taping of electrical cords as needed. A Class Angel will not miss any class instruction.
How do I volunteer to be a class angel?
Check the appropriate box on the registration form.
What is a First Timer?
This is someone who has never attended a South Central Region Seminar.
Where can I eat on the evenings that dinner is not included?

What type of clothing should I pack?
Comfortable, casual clothing is recommended, and layers like a light weight jacket, sweater or a shawl would be appropriate if needed for air conditioned rooms.

Each event has a table cost that is listed on the registration form.
