Class Sponsor/Host Agreement
Tracy’s standard offering is a six hour class covering basic Rebozo techniques, including increased time for 1-on-1 instruction, and a bonus section covering the Holistic Stages of Labor and a Journey through the laboring Brain. The workshop gives you 6 hours of CEU’s from ICEA.
The following section outlines the duties of the Class Sponsor. Please read through it carefully and let us know if you have any questions.
I greatly appreciate your interest in bringing me to your area to teach a workshop! I love my Class Sponsors. Be prepared, though, there is much work to be done before a class can take place and I rely heavily on Class Sponsors to get this work done. Local involvement is the key.
The primary responsibility of the Class Sponsor is to garner interest in the class and then to organize the class once there is sufficient interest. (See Minimum Registration below)
Additional Class Sponsor duties include:
You will receive registration links and a link to the Rebozo class website. It is your responsibility to ensure the minimum number of participants sign up and pay their class fees.
Start a Facebook Event and make Tracy an administrator
Secure the workshop location. Be sure it is a place large enough for 20 or more participants – with carpeting, yoga mats, or similar. Keep in mind that participants will be sitting, standing, lying down, and kneeling.
If there is any fee for the location, it is the responsibility of the Sponsor.
Organize food for the workshop. This can be a potluck, and is encouraged to help participants get to know the other birth professionals and resources in their area. If you choose to do a potluck, please be sure to notify all attendees BEFORE the class to bring a potluck dish to share.
Accept equipment deliveries via FedEx ahead of time, signature required. This usually happens a day or two before the class. FedEx will not leave the bags without a signature – even if you leave a note – someone MUST sign for them.
Provide support for Tracy while she is in town – helping with a place to stay, food, transportation, etc. She does sometimes rent a car if she has several classes in the area, but will discuss this on a case-by-case basis.
Set up and clean up
Help set up for the workshop the afternoon before, usually takes 20-30 minutes
Help break down and pack up after the workshop
Class Sponsor Incentives
As the Class Sponsor, you will receive your workshop free of charge. This can be transferred to another person by arrangement. (Other people helping or observing are subject to full course fees.)
Ability to fund-raise (see Fees and Costs below)
Fees and Costs
As Class Sponsor, you may choose to charge whatever you wish for the class in order to do fundraising, pay facility or association fees, or as a profit (Just remember that additional monies are paid only if minimums are met). In addition, you or your organization may choose to subsidize the fee to lower the cost to participants.
Tracy’s fees are as follows:
Early Bird Tickets (5 available) – $100
Couples/Clients Tickets (You can choose to make up to 50% of total possible registrations available for this group) – $50
General Admission Tickets (for professionals) – $125
I require a minimum of 12 registrations in order to lock in a date, and will continue to offer dates as “available” until that minimum is met. (If the Sponsor is part of a professional association, that group may pay for a percentage of the tickets that covers the initial 5 reservations, thereby locking in the date.)
A minimum of 15 registrations are required in order to hold a class. To be counted toward the minimum, registrants must pay for advance tickets. If space is available at the location, additional tickets may be offered at the door.
Class minimums may be flexible in cases where the potential exists to have more than one class in the area without additional travel. (Example: If Tracy travels to Orlando, she could do subsequent classes in Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville, lowering the minimum for each class to 8.)
Registration is non-refundable except in the event of a birth. In the case that minimums are not met, monies collected will be transferable to a rescheduled date with the same or other host.
