Registration fees are below through 8/31/2021.  Rates (in-person events) will increase by $10 on September 1, 2021 and registrations will only be available onsite. Payment is expected onsite. 

We strongly encourage membership!  Join OACAC.  The flat membership rate is $35.00 per individual across every membership level. The savings will come back to you immediately upon registering for Articulation! The Executive Board is planning on multiple professional development opportunities in addition to the continuance of the grant and Warren scholarship program available to members. Members get free or reduced rates to attend events and can enjoy other benefits exclusive to members only. Membership is annual (not pro-rated) July 1 – June 30.  Join now to enjoy a full year of benefits!

Rates will increase by $10 on September 1, 2021 for all in-person events. Registration is now closed and only onsite registration will be accepted for in-person events.

 

Once your membership is active (paid) for 2021-2022 and you are logged-in to your profile on the OACAC website, you will be able to register for articulation at the member rate. If you get a message that you don’t have “access” then your membership is very likely not current and paid for 2021-2022.

If you’re a school counselor or CBO advisor who cannot pay online, the work around is:

1) You join first and choose to be invoiced and then email: OACAC Executive Administrator. (Due to the high volume of special requests. please do not call.)

2) After membership is activated pending payment, you will register for the Articulation site of your choice. The registration will cancel for nonpayment, but we will reactivate and send you the invoice. voilà!!

Refund Policy**  Refunds will be reviewed upon request up to two weeks (14 calendar days) before the first day of the event. Requests must be sent via email to execadmin@oacac.org . Please include an explanation for your request, the payee and USPS address. You may be refunded any monies less any applicable credit-card processing fees if the original payment was by credit card. Refunds may be issued by OACAC check. Refund checks will be issued no sooner than 30 days after the last day of the event. If an OACAC event is canceled by circumstances beyond the control of OACAC such as but not limited to acts of God, war, terrorist threats, government regulations, public health crisis, disaster, civil disorder, inclement weather, sudden outage of electricity or water at the venue, or curtailment of transportation facilities – to the extent that such circumstances make it illegal or impossible to allow the OACAC event to occur, the participant agrees that they will not hold OACAC liable for the cancellation and/or disruption of the event (if in progress) and thereby request a return of any paid fees including but not limited to conference registration fees, sponsorship commitment fees, exhibitor table fees, meals, hotel and transportation costs. ** Refunds for late Virtual Articulation will not be given.

 Food at events:

As caring, inclusive host organizations, we will always do our best to help you be safe and comfortable. Your hosts will offer as reasonably as possible a variety of foods that meet your lifestyle preferences (e.g. vegetarian, vegan). We are acutely aware of food allergies. While, we cannot mandate or control a nut free/allergy free/grain-free environment, we can, however, offer options and have clear signage on food when we commune together. We cannot, however, control what attendees nor passers-by bring in or consume in the venue. We ask anyone with a food or environmental allergy to self-advocate and have a plan in place for what to do if they come in contact with an allergy causing element(s).  This may include having a medical plan, wearing a medical alert bracelet, keeping emergency medication on their person and having their cell phone on their person to call for help, if needed.

-The format consists of six colleges each presenting for six minutes.

-Representatives will be assigned to a session of six colleges to present together during a webinar session. The session will last a total of 45 minutes. School Counselors and others can interact with the reps from all six colleges throughout the 45-minute session via the Q&A chat.

Time Slot Assignments

After college registration closes, OACAC will assign colleges to a specific session time slot and presentation order within that session.

Your time slot assignment and grouping with other colleges are at the sole discretion of OACAC. If you have any special considerations, please note them in the registration form, but accommodations cannot be guaranteed and registration fees are non-refundable.

Time Commitment

Approximately 60 minutes is expected. Representatives are required to join the webinar 10 minutes prior to the session’s start time for a roll-call and technology check. A StriveScan representative will be on the webinar to check you in and provide assistance.

Representatives are required to stay throughout the entire session, even after your formal presentation is over. School Counselors may ask questions of you throughout the session.

Technology

Sessions are hosted via Zoom Webinars. Representatives’ cameras should be on during their presentation. School Counselors and participants will be muted and cameras off to avoid disruptions. School Counselors can interact with representatives from all six colleges throughout the 45-minute session via the Q&A chat.

StriveScan has custom configured its Zoom accounts to help prevent “Zoombombing” and to provide a safe and secure experience.

Presentation

Each college will have six minutes to present. We encourage you to highlight distinctions about your institution and use slides to provide visuals and campus photos. Each representative will share their own screen and slides when it’s their time. No slide template is provided.
