Registration Info – Notes from the Eastern Office

The PSIA-AASI Eastern Division office maintains a full-time member service staff to assist you with any membership or event registration questions. We are available by phone or e-mail and are happy to answer any questions and help you with your PSIA-AASI membership. PSIA-AASI membership has numerous benefits and offers you many opportunities to improve your personal teaching and skiing/riding, but it also has some rules and guidelines that must be followed. These are policies that the Association has deemed necessary to support efficient management of events, as well as sound fiscal practices.

Tutorial for Event Registration

Online Exam Registration

New this year! – You will be able to register for ALL events onlineincluding exams! No director’s signature will be required for exams and our new database is set up to recognize if you’ve taken the necessary prerequisites, so registering online will be your “go to” option to ensure your spot in any event. Space will be limited for most events, so registering online and early will be the best way to make sure you’re on the roster.

  • Please note: While a school director’s signature is not required, we strongly encourage you to notify your director so that he or she is both aware of and can help ensure that you are prepared for a successful exam experience.
  • Early Bird Pricing

    Once you find the event you’d like to attend, you’ll want to sign up early and take advantage of Early Bird Pricing until two weeks before the event! Space will be limited for most events, so sign up early to guarantee your spot. The system will also show you the number of spots remaining.

    Waitlists Will Be Available

    If the event is already full, make sure you utilize the online waitlist which is new for this year! You’ll be able to add yourself to the waitlist and if we’re able to open a spot for you, you’ll be automatically added to the event according to your position on the waitlist. We’ll make every effort to get you in to the event you want to attend.

    Automated waitlists will allow us to leave online registration open longer

    Registration for events will close one week before the event and two weeks before an exam.

    No Fax or Email Registrations Accepted

    Extra security measures have been put in place. In order to keep your information secure, no fax or email registrations will be accepted. You will register for ALL events online – including exams!

    Check for Potential Travel Restrictions

    Some Eastern Division Resorts may require quarantine if traveling from another state. Please check for any travel restrictions before you register for any event or exam.

    How We Can Help

    While we can no longer accept applications via fax, we have online registration for all events, and can help if you have any trouble with registration. You should expect to receive an e-mail confirmation to confirm your event registration has been completed to the e-mail we have on your record.

    Administrative Charges

    Cancellation and transfer fees reflect costs incurred by the Eastern Division office to change master sheets and computer records, file, send updates and provide extra communication by phone and e-mail. When changes are made just prior to events, the cost escalates due to the fact that virtually all costs and commitments are fixed by that time. Our current administrative fees are listed on each event details page and are listed below for your convenience.

    ADMINISTRATIVE CHARGES:

    IF YOU NEED TO TRANSFER or CANCEL a 1-DAY EVENT:
    Up to 14 days prior to the event: $20.00 fee
    During the two weeks prior to the event: $25.00 fee

    IF YOU NEED TO TRANSFER or CANCEL a MULTI DAY EVENT:
    Up to 14 days prior to the event: $20.00 fee
    During the two weeks prior to the event: $50.00 fee

    Notice to the office must be made no later than 4:30pm on last business day before the event.

    IF YOU DO NOT SHOW AT YOUR EVENT AND DO NOT CONTACT US: No refund.
    IF YOUR CHECK IS RETURNED TO US: Checks returned for insufficient funds will not be redeposited. The registration will be voided unless such checks or charges are replaced by certified check, money order or cash prior to the event. For returned checks, this must include a processing charge of $25.00.
