GROUP REGISTRATION

Groups of 11 or more adults/youth that register together online and pay in full, will receive a 10% discount on the registration fee only (not including meals). Group discount ends on November 11, 2017. After November 11, only substitutions may be made.

Each group needs to designate a Group Coordinator. The Group Coordinator will:

  1. Collect registration information and payment from church members.
  2. Register online first for her/himself. The first registrant of the group will be the Group Coordinator and contact person.
  3. Enter the church member's registration information online, adding to the group.
  4. Send in the payment for all the group members via one check or credit card.

If you have any questions, please contact our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Group discount only applies to Full Time Adult/Youth participants. (Not for staff or speakers)

The Group Discount only applies for groups of 11 or more adults and youth; and does not apply to children or anyone who has other registration discounts.

As a general guideline, we suggest your groups(s) range in size from 11 (adult/youth) to a maximum of 100 people (total).

Group Registration procedure:

  1. You must be the Group Leader (GL) of this group.
  2. Click the registration link and use your email address to create a new registration account or log in if you already have an account. Note: You will NOT be able to use the same email address to register for another group.
  3. Set a password (for future log in or update)
  4. Register yourself FIRST as the GL for this group. Any registration questions about your group members will come to you. Then enter the other members of your group by clicking “Add member to group”.
  5. When you are finished, always choose pay by “Check” and remember to click the “Completed” button. This will secure the info you have entered. Many friends forget to click the Completed button and lose all of the information that was entered. You may login to your group account whenever you want to add more people.
  6. Please make payment for as many as possible in your group by 9/11 (two days after the first deadline). Payment for groups must be made by one person (or your church). We cannot accept checks from multiple people for group registrations. You can either make a payment online with a credit card (at the end of registration process) or mail a check (with the GL’s registration ID number in the memo) to: AFC-CMC 2017, 21 Ambassador Dr., Paradise, PA 17562
  7. If you have more than 100 people in your group, we suggest you split into two groups; each group having their own GL.
  8. Make a second payment for any group members who registered after 9/9 before 11/11 (last deadline for a group discount).
  9. Any registrations after 11/11 will not be eligible for a group discount.

FAMILY CAP

Large families may apply for a FAMILY CAP on their registration fees. This sets a $500 limit on registration fees no matter the size of your family; you still have to pay the meal fees. The Family Cap applies only to immediate family members: up to 2 grandparents; 2 parents; and as many legally dependent children as you have. Depending on the age of your children and when you register generally families of 5 or more adults can benefit from this Cap.
