Where will the registration desk be located?

Do you have a day rate?

I just would like to attend a seminar/field trip, do I have to pay for a basic registration too?
Yes, you can register for a seminar/field trip only and no, you do not have to pay for a basic registration when doing so. You will receive a special nametag that will identify you as a seminar/field trip attendee only.
I’m a student, is there a special rate for me?
Yes. To qualify for a discounted student rate of $200 for basic registration, you must be a full-time student and provide a copy of your school ID.
How can I volunteer to help at Rally?
Many hands make a light load! We invite full-time students and friends of conservation to apply to volunteer at Rally as meeting monitors for workshop sessions. Volunteers will have the basic Rally registration fee waived. There are a limited number of volunteer spots available. Contact Scott Still at 970-245-5811 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Will scholarships be available?
Board members and staff from Alliance member land trusts can apply for assistance to help offset the cost of attending Rally. Applications are available on our website and due by Wednesday, July 10th.
Can I bring a guest to Rally who does not want to attend any of the educational sessions, but would like to attend some of the special events?
Yes, the more the merrier! When you register online, just include the name of your guest and check the appropriate Field Trip, the Welcoming Dinner, or the New Orleans Jogging Tour where indicated.
I work for a land trust that is a member of the Alliance. Do I get a discount?
Current member land trust staff, board or volunteers receive a hefty discount on Rally registration. If your land trust has not joined the Alliance, please consider joining today. Land Trust Member dues are based on a sliding scale.
Do individual members receive a discount?
Individual members who personally support the Alliance at the $500+ level receive a $50 voucher for Rally.
I have to make a change to my original registration. What should I do?
If you need to make changes to your registration, contact Scott Still at email@example.com or 970-245-5811. Please indicate the items you wish to change/add and indicate how you would like to pay for these additional items. Oftentimes, we can use the credit card we have on file for you (with your permission).
How do I go about cancelling my registration to Rally?
The Alliance must receive your written request (e-mail is preferred) for a refund by August 26th. Refunds will not be considered after this date. Rally registration will not be credited toward any other service, product from or contribution to the Alliance. A $50 administrative fee will be charged for any and all changes and/or cancellations.
