TCON Promotional Society (“TCON”) is a not-for-profit social club. A basic yearly membership in TCON allows the member:
Basic Yearly Memberships are valid from the date of registration in our database to May 31st of the FOLLOWING convention year. For example, if you buy your Basic yearly membership on January 1, 2013, it would expire May 31, 2014 (using our convention year calendar), unless renewed. This is to ensure that all members receive mailings for the next convention year. To be clear: Someone would not be able to to attend Reversed Polarity (in 2013), unless they purchased a membership that included a Basic yearly membership that expired in 2014. Otherwise, as their yearly membership would in fact expire prior to the convention, they would not have the right to attend.
Go to our registration page and, regardless of whether you register online or via mail, you must fill in the form. Each person must submit his/her own membership. Double-check to ensure all necessary boxes are filled in and correct – in particular, your email address. At the bottom of Step 4, you must have read, understand, and accept both the Privacy and Refund Policies in order to proceed to Step 5. When you reach the end of Step 5, select the method of payment and click on “Complete” which will take you to the final step.
If you choose:
NOTE: If you step away from the registration process for more than a couple of minutes it may ‘time-out’. Simply use your Back button to return to Step 1 and reselect starting at the Age portion.
TIP: It is best to explore our website first to make sure you are familiar with costs, programming and policies before registring.
Your pre-registration must be post-marked or submitted on or before October 14, 2013.
Lastly, Reversed Polarity will be appearing at various events throughout the year. We will be happy to take your registration at one of those events.
There are a number of reasons why we have a pre-registration deadline: One of the main reasons is to ensure there is enough time for us to get your cheque, cash it, process it and get a confirmation back to you before the convention.
If you missed that date by a day or two that’s OK. Beyond that, your cheque could still be in the mail when we make up the reserved seating list, etc. Therefore, if you missed the deadline, we may not have had time to process your registration. You don’t want to arrive to find out we haven’t received your cheque!
Yes, however the prices are slightly higher. Some items, like reserved seating, are only available by pre-registration. Events like the Writers’ Workshop may be sold out before the convention. Also convention t-shirts do sell out each year, so we cannot guarantee you will be able to get one in the size and colour you want unless you pre-order it.
We accept Visa and Mastercard, the payments of which are processed via PayPal. The online registration option allows you to pay by credit card without signing up for a PayPal account.
We will also be accepting these same credit cards at the door, as well as Debit.
For security reasons, TCON does not accept credit card orders over the phone, sorry.
In general it takes 4 to 6 weeks:
FYI, if you receive your cancelled cheque back from the bank in the mail, we will accept that as a confirmation.
Also, don’t forget to bring some ID with you when picking up your membership at the convention.
If you have already purchased a membership and wish to upgrade it (add Reserved Seating, a Workshop, Photo Sessions, etc), it can be done online. Click here to open the registration page and follow the instructions below:
When reaching the final step of the registration process, Step #5, your total amount due will be discounted by the value of the membership you already purchased. For additional information about registering, see “How do I purchase a membership” above.
TCON Promotional Society does not provide refunds. If for some reason you are no longer able to use your Membership, we will transfer your Membership standing to the next year’s event (maximum of one year carry over). You must notify us, in writing, by October 14th, 2013.
OR you can transfer your Membership to another person for the following convention year.
Please note, the Basic Membership cannot be transferred. Therefore, if you transfer an Advanced Membership to the following year or to another person, $11.00 will be owed on the membership. You will retain your original Basic Membership rights for the Membership year.
TCON Promotional Society does not provide refunds. As indicated on our flyers and our Basic Convention Policies page, all guest appearances are subject to professional commitments. When you purchase your membership you are purchasing a membership in a social club, not to see a particular guest. We do not announce any actors until we have a signed contract in hand. If an actor does cancel, we will do our best to find a replacement, but cannot always guarantee one will be found. If you do have concerns regarding this policy, we recommend you purchase your membership at the door.
