Registration & Fees

The conference will be held Monday, July 31 - Friday, August 4 at Sonoma State University, where all attendees will lodge. Lodging begins July 30. The atmosphere, located in the heart of Sonoma County's wine unique country, is both collegial and serene. Three daily meals are included with housing, with an extensive selection of dishes at each meal. Delegates will lodge in newly-built student housing facilities where each will have a private bedroom and private bathroom in an apartment of four to six people. Delegates will also have access to a state-of-the-art recreation facility on campus. Meals begin with dinner the evening before the conference, and end with breakfast on the last day of the conference.

Please note: Since fees are due to Sonoma State in advance of the conference, all registration fees must be paid twenty-one (21) days in advance of the event - no later than July 10. This also means that cancellations made after July 10 are not eligible for a refund or event voucher. (See the bottom of this page for the full cancellation policy.)

Registration is closed. We thank all who signed up to attend!

Conference Registration Cancellation Policy:

For refunds, all cancellations must be received in writing (email, fax, or post - see contact information below) no later than one month prior to the scheduled event. A $50-per-person processing fee will be deducted from all refunds. It is up to the registrant to confirm receipt of the cancellation request. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after the deadline. In extenuating circumstances, to be determined solely by the Foundation for Critical Thinking, a voucher for attendance at another Foundation for Critical Thinking event might be offered. Additional fees may be required to use this voucher, e.g. if used for an event with a larger registration fee. Vouchers cannot be offered for academies in England or any country other than the U.S.A. Substitutions for persons attending can be made up to three weeks in advance without charge. In the event of circumstances beyond its control, the Foundation for Critical Thinking reserves the right to amend or cancel any event. The Foundation For Critical Thinking is not liable for any expense incurred by participants as a result of cancellation.
