CCSA Annual Convention

August 25-28, 2017
Camelback Inn & Spa | Scottsdale, AZ

Come join the excitement as we take over Scottsdale, Arizona for 4 days of learning, inspiration, education, networking, shopping, ideas, techniques, trends, friends, fun, food and more.  Our annual conference has become a favorite among studio owners and suppliers alike.  


2017 Early Convention Savings Account is now available.  You can now pay for your convention registration months before convention.    Our program will allow you to put $375 into a savings account to use toward your convention registration.  You'll save money and get a very valuable advantage! 



How it works:

Starting on December 5th, we will open this program for registration.  You will have until December 31st to enroll.   We will not accept any participants after this date.  Payments will begin withdrawing on January 3rd, 2017.   

You choose to either pay a one-time fee of $375 or you can select 5 monthly payments of $84 each (*1).  Both options will afford you a credit of $375 toward your convention costs.  The one-time payment option will bill on January 3.  Monthly payment options will bill on the 3rd of January, February, March, April, and May 2017.  You may use a credit card or echeck for withdrawals. 

At this time, the only item you can save for is a single studio member registration.  It is simply a savings plan for which you can start putting away money for the 2017 Convention. 

And even better, you will be allowed to register for convention one-week before it opens to the general membership for Early Bird pricing. 

Savings Program participants will be able to register for convention starting on June 8th through June 14th, before the general membership can register.  You will use a special code we will provide for you (*2) .  You will then log on and register for convention and select your classes, add Pre-Convention (Pre-Con) classes, raffle tickets & additional attendees.   Early Bird registration will open to the general membership on June 15th. 

Remember payments do not begin until January. 


See additional terms and conditions below. (*3,*4, *5, *6, *7, *8)          

(*1) Monthly payment options have processing fees included.  The total out of pocket for you will be $420, of which you will receive a credit of $375 towards your convention registration. 
(*2) You will receive via email a discount code to use when registering.  You must use this code to apply your credit amount.  $375 will cover registration for the first attendee you are registering at the Early Bird price of $375.  Early Bird pricing ends on July 6th and the price goes up to $425.  If you do not use your code by July 6th, you will be responsible for paying the difference of registration costs.
(*3) By participating you are not registered for the 2017 CCSA Convention.  You must register on our website by logging in when registration opens.  Directions will be sent to your email. 
(*4) No refunds from this account will be made.  If you make your payments and cannot attend convention you have the option of trying to sell your convention registration to another CCSA Member.  The CCSA will not be responsible for this transaction or transfer of funds.  You must alert the CCSA if you choose to sell your registration with details including buyer name, studio, and email and phone number.   
(*5) These funds can only be used for Convention fees, not towards hotel, transportation or other items. 
(*6) By participating in this program you are not guaranteed class selection.  Class selection is based on a first come, first served basis through registration.  If a class is full when you decide to register, you will be prompted to select another class.
(*7) As of this date (11/10/2016) the convention pricing is $375 Early Bird and $425 after this period ends.  If the price of convention increases, participants will not be charged the increase.  Your prepayment participation ensures the first-person pricing is covered regardless of any changes.  Pricing for the 2017 CCSA Convention has not been announced. 
(*8) Program enrollment is Monday, December 5th starting at 12N EST through Saturday, December 31st, 6PM EST.
