    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    1. Do we have to stay the the host hotel? Simple answer: yes. Detailed explanation: In order to keep registration costs low- we’ve worked with the hotel and promised we’d fill our room block. Can we have roommates to save a bit of money? Absolutely! Just make sure everyone’s name is on the hotel registration.

    2. What are you going to do if I don’t at the host hotel? Although staying somewhere cheaper may save you a few bucks, it doesn’t benefit our entire group. We’re a community. Let’s stick together. I honestly, can’t control adults.

    3. What if I cancel or can no longer attend? Are you going to refund my payment or transfer it 2020? Nope. All payments are non-refundable.

    4. That sucks, can I transfer it to someone else or sell my spot? Sure. That’s your responsibility. Just make sure we have the name of the new registration before September 1, 2019. After September 1, 2019, transfers will not be allowed. It’s a headache. Email hello@tomayiacolvineducation.com with the name of the person you’ve sold your ticket to.

    5. It looks like you all party a lot. Will I be required to party and be sociable? I mean it is a “Cookout”.

    6. What if I can’t make my payments on time? Truthfully, I prefer not to play “bill collector.” Email hello@tomayiacolvineducation.com if you’re experiencing a financial hardship.

    7. I would like to volunteer to assist. Where can I sign up? Here’s the link to the volunteer form. All volunteers must be registered attendees of The Cookout.

    8. I can’t find double beds on the hotel booking site- What should I do? Call David, our sales manager, at 504-930-3077.

    9. Will there be raisins in the potato salad? No.

    10. I’m vegan. Will there be meals for me? Absolutely, I take great pride in making sure that everyone has something yummy to eat. If you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, or pescatarian I’ll have meal information set up closer to the event.

    11. I would like to be considered a speaker for 2019- how can I apply? The speaker team for 2019 is pretty much set. To apply in case space opens up, please apply here.

    12. I can’t afford registration. Are there scholarships available or down payment assistance? Absolutely. Please email community@tomayiacolvineducation.com
