2018 Convention Pre-Payment Plan

You can now pay for your convention registration months before the convention.    Our program will allow you to put $385 into a savings account to use toward your convention registration.

You'll save money and get a very valuable advantage!  

How it works:

Starting on January 1st, we will open this program for registration.  You will have until January 25th to enroll.   We will not accept any participants after this date. 

You choose to either pay a one-time fee of $385 or you can select 5 monthly payments of $87 each (*1).  Both options will afford you a credit of $385 toward your convention costs.  The one-time payment option will be charged on the day in which you place your order.  Monthly payment options will charge first payment on the day in which you place your order and on the 1st of February, March, April, and May 2018.  You may use a credit card or E-Check for withdrawals.

At this time, the only item you can save for is a single studio member registration.  It is simply a savings plan for which you can start putting away money for the 2018 Convention.  And even better, you will be allowed to register for convention one-week before it opens to the general membership for Early Bird pricing.

Savings Program participants will be able to register for our convention starting on June 15th through June 21st, before the general membership can register.  You will use a special code we will provide for you (*2).  You will then register for our convention and select your classes, add Pre-Convention (Pre-Con) classes, raffle tickets, & additional attendees if you so desire.   Early Bird registration will open to the general membership on June 22nd. 





See additional terms and conditions below. (*3, *4, *5, *6, *7, *8, *9, *10)         


(*1) Monthly payment options have processing fees included.  The total out of pocket for you will be $435, of which you will receive a credit of $385 towards your convention registration.

(*2) Via email, you will receive a discount code to use when registering for our convention.  You must use this code to apply your credit amount.  $385 will cover registration for the first attendee you are registering at the Early Bird price of $385.  Early Bird pricing ends on July 12th and the price goes up to $435.  If you do not use your code by July 12th, you will be responsible for paying the difference in registration costs.

(*3) By participating in the savings plan, you are not registered for the 2018 CCSA Convention.  You must register on our website by logging in when registration opens.  Directions will be sent to your email.

(*4) No refunds from this account will be made.  If you make your payments and cannot attend convention you have the option of trying to sell your convention registration to another CCSA Member.  The CCSA will not be responsible for this transaction or transfer of funds.  You must alert the CCSA if you choose to sell your registration with details including buyer name, studio, email, and phone number.   

(*5) These funds can only be used for Convention fees, not towards the hotel, transportation or other items.

(*6) By participating in this program you are not guaranteed class selection.  Class selection is based on a first come, first served basis through registration.  If a class is full when you decide to register, you will be prompted to select another class.

(*7) As of this date (11/15/2017), the convention pricing is $385 Early Bird and $435 after this period ends.  If the price of convention increases, participants will not be charged the increase.  Your pre-payment participation ensures the first-person pricing is covered regardless of any changes.  Pricing for the 2018 CCSA Convention has not been announced.

(*8) Program enrollment is Monday, January 1st, 2018 through Thursday, January 25th, 2018. 

(*9) If a monthly payment fails, you will be accessed a fee of $25 for each failed payment regardless of the reason for failed payment. 

(*10) 2018 CCSA Convention is in St. Charles, MO - September 14-17.
