I tried to make a reservation at the host hotel but was quoted a much higher price. What should I do?
Once the hotel room block is sold out, you can still book your room but not at the special discounted rate. When possible, ASH will contract an overflow hotel whose info will be posted on the city page of the event you are attending. However, we do not have control over the room rate or the amount of rooms available at that rate. Contacting the host hotel for more information is the best course of action.
If I receive a regional scholarship and am unable to attend, can my scholarship be used for Nationals?
Regional scholarships are only valid for the regional tour cities. Scholarships are not transferable, and cannot be extended. Check the face of your scholarship for the full information or visit the Scholarships page to see the value and rules associated with each scholarship.
Since I registered before the Early Bird Discount Deadline, why is my half scholarship $165 instead of $145?
All Scholarships are based on the regular rate because discounts and scholarships cannot be combined. The ASH Half Scholarship discount is based on the regular convention rate of $330, as discounts cannot be combined.
Do I have to participate in the Performance Showcase?
Attendees are not required to participate in the Performance Showcase, however, if you choose to participate in the Performance Showcase you must be registered for the full convention.
