The Convention Committee, through the generosity of the Area 61 membership, has made available Convention Scholarships to the 2021 Area 61 Virtual Convention via a lottery system. A Virtual Convention Scholarship is a Registration fee paid to the Registrar in the name of a scholarship recipient or granted to an applicant out of the scholarship funds that give that recipient total access to all meetings for the entire weekend. These scholarships are intended for those individuals who would not otherwise be able to attend the Convention.
If you are are sponsoring someone who qualifies or know someone who qualifies please make them aware of this opportunity.
Individuals who wish to apply for a scholarship may do so by filling out the form below. Those who have questions or who wish to apply themselves should email their name, email address and home group(if you have one) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Convention Committee wishes to extend a thank you to all registrants for your patience in these trying times. The refund process will begin tomorrow for both people who registered online and for those who submitted a check or cash. Given that there were over six hundred(600) registrants at the time of cancellation, it is our expectation that refunds will take us approximately a week to fully complete. Those who registered online will receive an email notiying them that a refund has been issued for their purchase. The refund will be credited to the bank card on file with PayPal for that purchase. Expect the refund to appear on the card three to five days after receipt of the email. Those who paid by check or with cash can expect to receive a check in the mail in approximately seven to ten days.
