There will be a slight delay with opening 2018 registration as there are some items that need to be discussed and decided between the NAFC, IDTANA, and An Coimisiun. Registration forms will be sent out as soon as they are available. January and February Feiseanna will be given an extension - 2018 registration will be due 5/31/17.
FEISEANNA REGISTRATION DEADLINE
Registration will be due for the following year no later than
two months after the date of the current year Feis.
We hope this makes the registration process easier since we received
many comments that most Feiseanna don't discuss or have the finances for the following year's Feis until the current year's Feis wrap up meeting.
EXAMPLE: Feis reserved date is in July 2016, therefore the 2017
registration for the July 2017 Feis is due by September 30, 2016.
NEW FEIS APPLICATIONS
Any new organization will be required to attend the prior year's
NAFC Convention in order to be approved for a new Feis
EXAMPLE: 2017 New Feis needs to attend 2016 NAFC
Convention in Albany, NY October 15-16, 2016
DATE CHANGE REQUESTS
Date change requests are on a first come, first serve basis, subject to approval and full registration and payment. Date availability is limited to the following rules from the tripartite agreement between CLRG, IDTANA and NAFC - Feiseanna cannot be within 200 miles of each other, max of 6 Feiseanna on 1 day or 10 Feiseanna on a weekend in all of North America. Requests can also be denied if there is support of a potential detrimental impact on an existing Feis.
Exceptions to these date availability rules may be possible by sending an
explanation of why the date change should be granted to the
registrar, who will send it out for a majority vote.
