National CACFP Conference Purchase Order Policy


The National Child and Adult Care Food Program Sponsors Association (NCA) Board of Directors recognizes the need for State Agencies (SA) to have the option of payment for registration for the National CACFP Conference by purchase order to secure an early or standard registration rate which is discounted from the late/onsite registration rate. Purchase orders must reflect an authorized expense and promise of payment. The Board of Directors has determined that in order for State Agencies to register for the NCA Conference with a purchase order and secure early or standard registration rates, the purchase order must be accompanied with a credit card guarantee.  The credit card will ONLY be charged if payment by check is not received by the association.

Furthermore, the early registration rate for a PO is extended at NET 30 -- which means that registration received on or before the early registration deadline (February 15) by PO and credit card guarantee will secure the early registration rate as long as the check is received within the next 30 days. If payment is not received within that window, the State Agency will be invoiced at the Standard Registration Rate.

All payments for all POs must be received by the association on or before April 18. Outstanding registration payments will be processed on the credit card used to guaranteed the registration on April 20.

This policy is not meant as a burden, however, reflects the desire of the association to ensure integrity, collection of funds, and preservation of organizational finances.

Example:  

  1. A SA FAXES a PO with credit card guarantee on February 15 in order to qualify for the early bird rate.

  2. The SA has 30 days in which to send the check to NCA.

  3. If the check is not received by NCA on or before March 16, the SA will no longer qualify for the early bird rate, and will now be invoiced the standard rate.

  4. Again, if the check is not received by NCA within the next 30 days -- on or before April 15, the SA will no longer qualify for the standard rate, and will now be invoiced at the late rate.  

  5. If the SA does not bring payment to the conference and/or does not attend at all, the credit card used to guarantee the registration will be charged the late rate.
