Important details to know:

  • Registration fee: now $80 for late registration. The banquet is SOLD OUT.
  • Hotel rooms: $139/night (taxes and fees not included)
  • 2017 OTS Descriptions
  • FSPA Adviser Contract-Behavior Contract-Guide 2017
  • FSPA STUDENT Contract-Behavior Contract-Guide 2017
  • For this year’s convention, we are collecting the names of your students so we can give each student a name badge along with the traditional wristband.
  • Two important deadlines:
    • March 22: Registration closes. This means you are locked in on the number of students/advisers/guests that you can bring. This is also the deadline for On The Spot contests. Invoices for registration and OTS will be generated based on your registration total on that date. This is the only invoice you will receive; you cannot change the number of attendees after this date.
    • April 5: This is the last day that you can change names (but not body count) and shirt sizes. We will have blank name badges and extra T-shirts (while supplies last) at the convention to handle any name changes after April 5.
