CFC International Family Conference

Biennial Conferences
Every other year CFC International holds a conference to gather families, care providers, therapists, teachers, scientists, researchers and doctors under one roof to learn and discuss the latest information on CFC syndrome. The conference is a great networking opportunity and a time to meet new friends and catch up with old ones!

The following info will help you prepare to complete your online registration form.

We highly recommend that you complete your registration when you have at least 30 minutes and you are not in a rush or distracted. Under Registrant Type, everyone (except doctors) will be selecting “Families.” If you skip over something that should have been filled in, it will tell you the registration is incomplete and highlight in red the questions that need completion. If you are running out of time, you can save the registration and return to finish it later. Also, if you change your mind about a meal or attending an activity, you may return and make edits until June 10, 2019.

Please note that the Early Bird registration rate expires at midnight EST on March 10, 2019 when it will automatically change to the regular rate. Registration must be complete, which includes payment, before the rate expires to take advantage of the reduced early bird rate. There are no exceptions! Here are the deadlines:

  • March 10, 2019 Midnight Eastern Standard Time – Early Bird Rate Expires
  • June 10, 2019 – Registration Closes and Hotel Room Block Expires

If you have additional questions, please email [email protected] and we will be glad to help you.

Warm Regards,
