FAQ: Pertaining to 2019 Conference.
PayPal will not accept my business credit card.
Answer: Check with your business accountant/manager if payment cannot be completed. Authorized cards may have restrictions for types of payment. Some government issued cards (i.e. university, agencies like the EPA, etc.) have tiered restrictions within PayPal. This issue must be resolved with contacting PayPal directly or the business manager for the credit card being used.
I want to register several people, but am unable to do so.
Answer: Each conference attendee or presenter must complete their own registration without submitting payment. Once all attendees are registered then a Batch Payment can be generated that allows for payment of more than one invoice. It is important for each attendee to have their own registration so that we can have contact with them with pre-conference information, a post-conference evaluation and gather membership information for profit sharing.
What is your policy on bringing K-12 students or my own children?
Answer: Youth may attend if they are presenting. They can do the presentation, walk around the expo and then leave. This is not a field trip for a class. New mothers and their infants are welcome.
I can’t attend and want to send a colleague in my place.
Answer: There will be no charge for substituting another attendee for a paid registration, but the request must be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the person originally registered or by a district administrator or secretary. The person who is the substituting attendee must fill out an online registration form in their name in order to complete the transfer of registration.
I want to cancel my registration and receive a refund.
Answer: Refund requests must be in writing and postmarked/email-dated 5 days before the conference. All refund requests must include a copy of the registration invoice and should be mailed/emailed to the CSC treasurer using the address on the invoice. Registration cancellations are subject to a $10 processing fee. Ticketed events are nonrefundable. CSC will not guarantee the fulfillment of any refund requests submitted after the conference date.
I am a new mother. Is there a place where I can care for feeding my infant?
Answer: We have a room set aside for women who need to feed their infants. The Pre-Registration desk personnel can direct you to the room. Electricity and chairs are available. Equipment may be left in the room or at the Pre-Registration desk.
I want to pay for several people.
Answer: Use the Batch Payment button to submit payments for multiple invoices.
I am a presenter/co-presenter. Do I need to register?
Answer: All presenters and co-presenters are required to register for the conference.
I need an invoice or a receipt. How do I get one?
Answer: Invoices are generated at the time of registration online. Receipt for payment are generated when payment is received either via PayPal or check. All receipts are sent to the email address provided with the online registration submission.
What is available for lunch?
Answer: You have the option of paying for lunch with or without a ticket. Lunch tickets are provided as convenience for $12. The purchase of an entrée and beverage plus tax usually comes to approximately the $12. We always have vegetarian and gluten free options available. We do not give cash back on the tickets. You may also bring a sack lunch, or visit one of the fast food restaurants across the street.
Is college credit available?
Answer: We regret that we are not able to offer college credit for attending the Colorado Science Conference.
When can I get an attendance certificate?
Answer: We cannot jeopardize our ability to give CDE certificates of attendance by providing them to persons who did not attend the entire day. Therefore attendance certificates for 5 clock hours will only be distributed to persons in attendance at 4:00 p.m.
How can I buy advertising in the program book or scheduling app?
