You may make changes to your workshop selections by contacting


You will hear from Membership by email if there are problems with the workshops you select. Otherwise, confirmations will be emailed in late June.

New Members

Three spaces in each workshop will be reserved for new members until Randomization in June. After that date, any available spaces will be allocated to those on the waiting lists.

Over-subscribed Workshops

In mid-June, the names of applicants for any over-subscribed workshops will be randomized. This allows for an equitable distribution of applicants to determine membership in the workshop and a waitlist sequence.


If you are waitlisted, you will be contacted to see whether you wish to remain on that waitlist or would rather choose another workshop. Registrations received after randomization for over-subscribed workshops will be added to the end of the waitlist.

Cancelled Workshops

A minimum number of five participants is required for a workshop to proceed. Applicants will be contacted before the beginning of the term if their workshop does not meet that minimum number.


Refunds will not be given after September 30.
