Paying by Check

FACC understands that while credit card payments are becoming standard practice in today's electronic payment processing environment, in some cases, our members may need to submit payment by check for event registrations. We are happy to provide our members with this service; and with your help, we can ensure that these types of registration payments are processed accurately and expeditiously.

Payment Time Frame
Additional fees apply if payment is submitted after the registration deadline. To take advantage of specific registration rates (such as early registration), we require that payments are received on or before the date when that specific registration type ends.  Please note that postal mail takes 2-5 business days to reach our office, and intra-office mail processing can delay that receipt of payment in some cases by an additional day. Because transit time subsequently delays registration, we ask that you please plan accordingly when generating your check payment.

On-Site Registrations by Check
A discounted registration rate is available only prior to an event, and in the time frame specified by the event registration announcement. All on-site registrations are charged the late registration fee. If you will be paying on-site by check, the late fee applies even if you have registered-without-paying before the event begins. Please calculate the total registration fee to include the late rate, and make the check for this amount; contact FACC if you need guidance in fee calculation.

Print-Form Registration
If a printable registration form is provided, you may complete it by hand and remit it with your mailed check payment. Please note that postal mail takes 2-5 business days to reach our office, and this method will subsequently delay your registration. Plan accordingly.

Inaccurate and/or incomplete registration documentation can cause a delay in registration processing. If you have any questions about completing a check payment, please do not hesitate to contact FACC for clarification.
