ONLINE REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS

PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE REGISTERING


PLEASE DOWNLOAD.  PRINT AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
 TO ENSURE YOUR REGISTRATION IS PROPERLY COMPLETED.


To begin registering you will need to provide an email address and a password.
  • To simplify the registration process, the Faculty Representative may enter his/her own email for all registrants.
  • We recommend that the Faculty Representative enter a generic password, as others in your group may need to use it.  For example, other faculty members may need to access the system to fill out the Teacher Interest Form.
Proceed through all registration pages to complete registration.  Read each item carefully.  Checking boxes for participation will open additional fields.


In order to save any information that has been entered, you must proceed to the last page and click on “Finish My Registration.”  Doing that will ensure that when you are ready to add additional information or make changes, the information you entered previously will be there when you re-enter the system. If you do NOT proceed through all the pages and click on “Finish My Registration” at the end, information you have entered will NOT be saved.

NOTE:  If you make an error in the process of going through the registration pages, you will have an opportunity to correct information before completing registration or you may close the registration before completing and start over.

Do not use the “back” button as it may corrupt information.


GROUP REGISTRATION

The system allows for group registration.  You are required to enter each registrant; you cannot give a total number of your group.  Rather, you will be asked for information on each registrant.  Address information will self-propagate, but you will need to fill in a few fields for each additional registrant.

Please select the registration type carefully for each registrant.
  • Each school registration must include someone designated as either a FACULTY REPRESENTATIVE or an ACDFA BOARD MEMBER.
  • One, and only one, faculty member must be designated as the FACULTY REPRESENTATIVE for each school.
    • Exception:  An ACDFA BOARD MEMBER can serve the in the capacity of the faculty representative.  All ACDFA Board Members should select ACDFA BOARD MEMBER as registrant type.  A board member might or might not serve as the faculty representative for his/her school.
  • Only the Faculty Representatives and ACDFA Board Members will have access to Gala Concert program forms.
NOTE: If you register any member of your group under the wrong registrant type, please notify the national office (acdfa@verizon.net).  It is important for your registration that this information is accurate and you cannot correct this error yourself.

If you do not yet know the names of students who will be attending, enter a placeholder and then fill in names later.  For example, you could enter the first name as your school name and the last names as “#1,” “2,” “3,” etc.  Be advised, substituting names later will take some time.

Please enter only as many people in your group as you are committed to bringing to the Festival.  You may add registrants at a later date if there are registration slots available.  There are no refunds on paid registrations.  If you delete a paid registrant, you will not receive a refund; however, you may change (substitute) the names of the registrants.
