With the e2c registration day only a few sleeps away i thought it would be a good idea to discuss our 'proxy' rules.
If you don't need to proxy - don't.
We developed this idea for people who may not have internet access, if they are at work or have other commitments at the time of registration. It was NOT for people thinking that they are doubling their chances of getting a spot. In fact it's quite the opposite.
The past few years there has been a lot of 'doubling' up of registrations ie. Jasmine emails her registration in and also has Shirley as a proxy. Shirley sends in her own registration and has Cindy as a proxy. Cindy sends her own email in.
As you can see it can get quite convoluted. The whole thing is time consuming for us trying to process everyone fairly and also completely pointless. It clogs the e2c inbox up, is frustrating to sort through and does not increase your chance of getting through in time at all.
If there is a need - please use it… but we need names and email addresses.
For those who do need to use the proxy rule, please only ask one person to do it for you.
The person that submits your proxy will need your name, postal and email address to include on the initial registration email. The proxy registration will be null and void without this info.
We are trying to be fair to everyone.
We understand how coveted the seats are at e2c. We get that. We totally do.
Please rest assured that we have a strict 'first in, first served' policy and hold great importance to truth, fairness, and the integrity of our system. With only 80 spots up for grabs and such a high demand, plus 7 years of retreat planning under our belt we believe we have a great registration process which gives everyone an equal opportunity to attend.
