Your payment options are as follows: mail a cheque out to the attention of "Alpine Club of Canada - Calgary Section" to the address I will email you once a few have registered.. Or send an INTERAC e-Transfer to the ACC Treasurer using, We prefer the later. Let the treasurer know your name, email and the course it is for! Also, send a follow-up email to the Treasurer with the password. We prefer INTERAC e- Transfer. Pease be advised that if you have paid and need to pull out of the course, there will be no refund.
