How and when do I register?

You may register online in the months before the event, or download and mail the appropriate registration form. ACF accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, checks and money orders.

How much does it cost to attend?

Event prices are based on registration date, membership status and registration type. Please review the registration forms for specific prices.

Will I receive confirmation of my registration?

Yes, once we have processed your registration and payment, a confirmation detailing your registration will be sent.

Print your registration confirmation! You can print a copy of your event registration at any time by accessing your profile page.

Do I need to bring my registration confirmation to the meeting?

Having your confirmation information is suggested, but not required.

When do I get my badge?

Your registration packet will be available for pickup at the conference/convention registration desk. Only the registered attendee may pick up their registration packet.

What if I lose my badge?

Please understand that we cannot be responsible for lost/misplaced badges. There will be no refund or replacement of a lost badge.

What is the cancellation/refund policy?

Cancellations made 30 days or more from the event start date will receive a 70% refund. Cancellations made within 30 days of the event start date are ineligible for a refund. Due to deadlines that are out of the control of the ACF, there will be no exceptions made. Individuals may roll the cancellation amount, 30% or 100% of the registration fee, over to another ACF product (i.e., membership, certification or an event). If utilizing the rollover amount for an event, we will allow for a one-time rollover and you must register within 12 months of the event. The refund must be requested in writing and be sent to events@acfchefs.org.

ACF reserves the right to modify this policy.
