Many of us have grumbled about the fee to register for the convention being too high. GREAT NEWS! The PC Party just emailed everyone to notify them that they will be reducing all registration fees by $100 effective immediately, and refunding those who have already paid. Here's what they said in the email:
"...we are issuing a refund of $100 for members who have purchased their tickets at the regular member rate to the convention and, we are permanently lowering the cost of tickets for anyone who wishes to register from this point on. If you paid for your convention fees by credit card, don’t worry, your refund will be automatically returned to your card. If you paid by any other method, a member of our staff will be in touch shortly."
So if the cost of the convention was ever a reason for not registering as a delegate, please register now by clicking here! Then let me know that you have registered by clicking the button below.
Also, email me at [email protected] with YOUR CELL NUMBER so I can text you important information while the convention is going on.
Don't forget about our PAFE strategy meetings Friday November 16. We are holding two identical sessions so pick one and RSVP by clicking one of the links below. This session will be held very close to the convention site. We will provide you with the location very soon, but you need RSVP first!
And then there's the special complimentary learning luncheon we will be hosting. Remember- lunch isn't included in the convention fees, so if you're up for spending time with fellow delegates and learning about important issues facing Ontario while enjoying a free lunch, please RSVP by clicking here.
Some reminders from yesterday's email:
Best Time for On-Site Check-In?
Friday November 16: 1pm to 9pm
Saturday November 17: 7am to 8am (complimentary breakfast is served at 7 am)
As far as PAFE is concerned, the most important part of this convention is the Saturday morning Policy Plenary & Voting session. This is where delegates will get to vote on pro-family policy resolutions.
Policy voting will start at 8:15 am, and you will not be allowed into the room until you have both paid the fee and completed the ON-SITE CHECK-IN.
Please either show up at the Toronto Congress Centre on Friday and check-in then, or else arrive at 7am on Saturday to complete the ON-SITE CHECK-IN ** BEFORE ** the 8:15 policy session starts. Ideally, you should be in your seat at 8 am when the convention officially starts. This is the single most important thing you need to know about the entire weekend!
NO MATTER WHAT, plan to be in the Plenary Hall from 8:15am to 10:30am to vote on the policy resolutions.
