ECBACC 2011 Wait List Registration

Author: sbrandford
April 23, 2011

As cancellations occur, the ECBACC, Inc. board will select replacements who have completed the wait list registration process under strict requirements.  These are intended to provide a quick turnaround process for the three required steps.

  • Completed application form – Using the registration form, complete all identifying information and sign.  The signed form can be scanned and uploaded to our drop box or sent via fax [(877) 849-2522].  DO NOT send your scanned form via email; the files are often too large after scanning.  DO NOT send your form via postal mail.

  • Products for sale – Upload examples of the products you will sell to our drop box , send via fax [(877) 849-2522], or send a link to their location online.  DO NOT send your scanned content via email; the files are often too large after scanning.  DO NOT send your examples via postal mail.

  • Payment – Send payment by ordering through the online store, which uses PayPal.  Electronic checks that take several days to clear will not be counted until the payment has cleared.  Any excess payments will be refunded, once all the cancellations have been replaced.

Please be advised, there could be more wait list inquiries than there are cancellations.  As a result, this wait list registration process is first-come, first-served, in the order that all three requirements are fulfilled.
