Tried to register 3 weeks ago and have not gotten my number yet so that I can register for the convention. How do I know what classes have been closed already?
The lady that handles the registrations is very sick and in the hospital. They have other volunteers stepping in to try and get caught up. Please be patient.
Edited to correct first post. Don't know what happend to half of the words I typed ;-(
Yes, I know it's frustrating, but try to be patient. She's very ill and in the hospital right now. She is doing what she can and other volunteers are doing their best to pick up the slack.
The lady that does the membership is in the hospital right now, she has terminal cancer.
The ICES President asked me to post a thread about this very thing, which I did a few days ago. Yes, she's in the hospital. There are currently volunteers working to catch up on all the paperwork. Their goal is to have it all accomplished by April 1st, so be patient for a few more days!
Thank you Jodie.
I'd also like to say, we had a Day of Sharing this past weekend, and all the members of Massachusetts are sending their love and prayers to her and her family!
Thanks for the info
Im sorry to hear about your frusteration. I registed back in january and it was handled right away.
To answer your question about the classes being filled - i registered for the convention last week and most of the classes were filled (sorry) but most of the demonstrations were still open.
I just wanted to update......I finally received my ICES registration number yesterday and was able to register for the Conference today (Friday). The hands on classes were mostly filled for the days I can be there, but I did sign up for 7 demonstrations.
I am really looking forward to the Conference and hope to meet a lot of you there!
Still haven't gotten mine yet and I am bummed because I know I won't get in any classes........poo
kentuckyjode...I'm pm'ing you the email address of the new registration contact person.
JodieF..did I tell ya I luv ya!!?
Kentuckyjode...*lol* tell me in person when I see you in St. Charles!
Kentuckyjode...did you ever get your registration straightened out??
yes!she got back to me the day you gave me her email and got me registered in ICES! Thanks so much for your help...hope to run into you at the convention!
Even if you don't get in to any of the hands-on classes there is still a TON of stuff to do at an ICES convention... I went down for just a day in Omaha a few years ago and managed to spend $600 in 4 hours with three trips to the car (was contemplating sending my clothes home via usps LOL)... Yea, I had fun :O)) I also stuck around for the Sunday Night of Sharing and had a blast (no charge)... Sometimes instructors (and just members in general) will bring leftovers to do some hands-on stuff so you never know. If I hadn't gone to the SNOS I'd have never learned my way around Wedding Cake Design Pro
I registered early and my DH can't figure out WHY I wanted to. I got into a few of the hands on classes but there were a few I wanted that I didn't. The thing to remember is if you ask most of the instructors, they'll tell you how to do it. Plus, you don't want to over schedule yourself as there is also a ton of stuff to do outside of the convention itself along with plenty of time on Sunday to hit the vendor room!!
