Q. Why should I become a group coordinator and create a group name?
A. There are three major benefits to creating a group name:
  1. You can bring help and hope to a hurting couple.
  2. You can save your group money. Register up to 1 day prior to the getaway start date and get the group rate—a savings of $100 per couple.
  3. You can save yourselves money. For every five couples who register at any paid rate (excluding scholarships) using your group name, you receive a complimentary couple’s registration. Use this complimentary registration yourselves or transfer it to another couple.
Q. What do I have to do to create a group name?
A. There are two steps to creating a group name:
  1. Sign-up
  2. Invite others to join your group by using your group name to register for any Weekend to Remember conference.
Q. How do I establish my personal group name?

Q. Can I establish a personal group name for someone else?
A. No, the couple requesting a group name is responsible for activating their own group name. They will be asked to provide their information.

Q. Now that I have my personal group name, what do I do next?
A. There are three steps once you have your group name:
  1. Make sure you have the promotional materials you need. Visit our promotional toolkit page
  2. If creating a group name for a church, plan your promotion with your church staff. Refer to the steps outlined in the Church Promotion Sample Checklist.
  3. Friends and family can register online. Enter the group name in the group name field to receive the group rate.
Q. When is the deadline to register and receive the group rate?
A. Registrations must be received at least one day prior to the event date to receive the group rate.

Q. How do individuals register to join my group?

A. Register online or call 1-800-FL-TODAY (1-800-358-6329) to register by phone. Enter the group name in the group name field online or mention the group name when registering by phone.

Q. Do I need to collect registrations?
A. There is no need to collect registrations. Your guests should be encouraged to register online or by phone. Be sure to enter the group name in the group name field online or mention the group name when registering by phone.

Q. Is it okay to collect registrations if I want to?
A. If you choose to collect registrations for your group, be aware that holding registrations could cause your group to be unable to attend in the event of a sellout. Instead, call or mail in registrations immediately—as you get them—to ensure that seats are reserved.
 
Q. How many people are needed to create a group name?
A. There is no minimum number of people required to create a group name. Your group exists as soon as you establish a group name. Those registering with your group up to ONE day prior to the conference will get the early group-rate savings of $100 per couple. Those registering with your group name after the ONE day deadline will receive the regular rate, but they still count toward your group total and can help you earn a complimentary couple’s registration.

Q. How do I check to see who has joined my group and when I have earned a complimentary couple’s registration?
A. Call 1-800-FL-TODAY (1-800-358-6329) and ask for your group status. For every 10 individual (5 couples) paid registrations, you will receive a complimentary couple’s registration. You can also see this information if you have set up an account on our Group Coordinator Tool at gcmobile.familylife.com. This information is available under "Group Information" once you login.

Q. How do I redeem my complimentary couple's registration?
A. Call 1-800-FL-TODAY (1-800-358-6329) to register for any conference and request your complimentary couple's registration. Or, you can transfer your complimentary couple's registration to someone else.

Q. How do I transfer my complimentary couple's registration to another couple?
A. As the group coordinator, you must call 1-800-FL- TODAY (1-800-358-6329) and register the other couple once the complimentary couple’s registration has been earned.
 
Q. Can I add couples to my group even after the group rate deadline (i.e., couples paying the regular registration rate)?
A. Yes. The group rate deadline does not affect adding couples to your group.

Q. May I keep my group name from year to year?

Scholarship registrations cannot be taken under a group name and will not count in your group totals.
