Registration

I am trying to register but my membership number is not working or it gives me an error message saying that my number does not match my last name. Who should I contact?

The first step, try this troubleshooting tip on How to Read Your Membership Card below. If it is still not working, please contact Matthew at afpadmin@afptoronto.org or call us at 416-941-9212.

 

If you received a member card with 12-digits, use the last 8-digits of the card. For example, John Smith’s Member ID number for the Toronto website would be 01234567.

 

 

 

If you received a member card with 6 or 7 digits, add as many zeroes as needed in front of the Membership ID number to make it an 8-digit number. For example, John Smith’s Member ID number would change to 01234567 instead of 1234567.

 

 

I am an AFP member from another Chapter (other than Toronto) and my membership number is not working when I register – who should I contact?

Please contact the Membership Coordinator, Matthew, at afpadmin@afptoronto.org or call us at 416-941-9212.

I am trying to register a group in one invoice or payment, how can I do this?

When registering a group, go to the Registration page and fill in the first person’s contact information and at the bottom of the form, hit Save & Continue. On the second page, add the person’s membership number (if applicable) –> Save & Continue. On the next page, confirm the registrant type and price by clicking the checkbox –> Save & Continue. The next page, you can choose the sessions you would like to attend.
