A convention Delegate will have voting privileges at the Sunday business session. It is very important that delegates be designated by their club as a voting delegate on the Credentials Form and attend the Sunday session.

Far West changed the registration process recently to Individual Registration. In other words, individuals submit their Delegate Registration Form and fees directly to the Convention Registrar instead of having the club collect all the checks and submitting one club check.

Clubs will still need to submit their completed Delegate Credentials Form to the Convention Registrar.

Economic Incentive

FWSA is offering an "economic incentive" program this year, to provide a ski club the opportunity to send more delegates to the Convention. For every six (6) delegates that have paid the full registration package by the May 9, 2016 deadline, the club will receive a rebate of one (1) paid registration after the Convention.

Optional Activities

Delegates can register for the Optional Activities NOW or anytime prior to the May 9, 2016 deadline through the registration process. Many of these activities are limited and expected to sell out, so delegates should not delay in sending in their payment. Priority will be given to registered delegates and industry.

Convention Delegate Responsibilities

  • Participate in voting on Sunday (as a voting delegate) during the business portion of the Convention.

  • Be cordial and respectful to invited guests and industry representatives.

  • Respect the industry seating arrangement (typically, two industry representatives) at each table for Saturday lunch and dinner.

  • Display honesty and integrity in representing your snowsports club to the industry.

Registration now available & payable via PayPal or
snail mail using the PDF Registration Form
Register by May 9, 2016 to secure your spot.
We look forward to you joining Far West in Scottsdale, June 9–12, 2016.
