Frequently Asked Questions
What is the "Price" and the "Fee"?
Answer: The cost to apply to FIT is $25. The "Fee" is what the Northern California Society of American Foresters pays to Eventbrite for the web-based application fee processing.
It was necessary to include an application fee to discourage people from applying and then not participating. Even with the $25 application fee about 35% of applicants don't participate.
Can I receive a refund of the $25 application fee?
Answer: No, there is no refund of the application fee. The Northern California Society of American Foresters began charging an application fee several years ago as a way to reduce participant withdrawal. The application fee appears to be too low to reduce this behavior as the withdrawal rate continues to exceed 30%.
Can I attend FIT again?
Yes, but you must pay the cost of participation of $800.
