FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can I volunteer my services and time at the Gathering in exchange for a waived or reduced registration fee?
A: Unfortunately, no. We have received many requests regarding this and, although we welcome the interest, we already have a vibrant and capable volunteer committee that consists of graduate students/affiliated members of the Transformative Learning Centre and University of Toronto. These students have helped plan for this Gathering from its early conception and are also familiar with the University services and community. This ‘home team’ will ensure a knowledable and responsive contribution to the event that should make all registrants feel at home, too.
Q: Are you still looking for Animators?
Q: When we will find out about the exact location of the Gathering, the Council and Dialogue locations, and other particulars?
A: The Gathering is tentatively being held at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, 252 Bloor St. West in Toronto.We have other building options available should our registration number or Gathering logistics demand alternative venues. You will receive an email – whatever email you had listed in your registration information – closer to the Gathering date which will confirm these details. We will also be posting details about the event on our webpage.
Q: How do I know you’ve received my registration?
A: If you have paid by PayPal and TicketLeap, you will receive email confirmation of the transaction in a day or two. Both PayPal and TicketLeap send automated confirmations of completed transactions. If you have mailed in a cheque with a registration form, we will also send a reply by email but the response time may be later due to any delays receiving snail mail. We try to cash cheques every two weeks or so, so please be patient when balancing your chequebook.
