If you do not make your reservation before Nov. 12th you will pay a much higher rate. When calling the Hilton use “FACA” as the group code so you will get the FACA room rate. Our block of rooms will go fast. To be tax exempt, you must pay with a school check or school credit card. The check or credit card must have the same name as the tax exempt account. The hotel won’t accept cash, personal checks or personal credit cards for tax-exempt accounts.
Clinic registration is free for 2014-15 FACA members and $70.00 for non-members. You may receive Inservice Points towards recertification requirements. Although the D.O.E. has approved the FACA Clinics as a means of meeting the requirements, your county must also approve the FACA Clinics for you to receive the points. Be sure to check with your county/school. There is no extra cost for those receiving the Inservice Points. We will also have a hotel sponsored “FACA Coaches Reception” on Thursday evening, December 4th at 6:30 pm. A DJ, Door prizes and a grand prize drawing of a weekend stay at the Hilton will be part of that reception. Don’t miss the fun!
