Questions? Feel free to contact Emmi Harward, ACCIS Executive Director. 

*PLEASE NOTE the below change to our standard attendee cancellation policy and review this prior to submitting your registration. This information will also be found in your confirmation email message.

ACCIS's event cancellation policy does NOT apply to this tour as we have funds committed to BCCIE at the point of registration. PARTIAL REFUNDS, minus committed fees, may be requested prior to April 13, 2018 (one month before tour) and will depend upon our ability to fill the participant's spot on the tour. Requests must be received in writing to Emmi Harward on or before this date. After April 13, 2018, ACCIS and BCCIE are liable for all tour fees for each registered attendee; therefore, regardless of the reason for cancellation, we are unable to return any funds to attendees unable to join. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AFTER APRIL 13, 2018.

Please note that your registration is non-transferable. Due to the need to purchase air travel, any name changes made on or before April 13, 2018 will incur a Name Change Fee of CAD $45.00 per name change. NO NAME CHANGES WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THIS DATE. For any questions about registration, please email eharward@accisnet.org.

ACCIS will host our summer Colloquium at Babson College, just outside Boston, MA. The program this summer will be a Writer's Workshop for college counselors, offering the opportunity to gain insight and support for your writing AND the time to write a few recommendation letters on your own. Writing activities will be led by Dr. Ann Velenchik, Wellesley College Dean of Academic Affairs and former Director of the Writing Program. We also plan to visit area colleges in addition to Babson. Attendees are expected to participate in all Colloquium events. More details to come.

*New this year! Rather than stay in campus residence halls, confirmed participants will have the opportunity to reserve rooms at the Babson Executive Conference Center, a fully equipped hotel/conference property on the Babson College campus. The discounted room rate is $160/night.

Registration fee is $300 per attendee (plus 3 nights of hotel). Registration will open in mid-February.
