New For This Year

The Association realizes that registration fees can be a barrier to RailNation:DC participation. In an effort to make RNDC2024 more accessible while still meeting our financial obligations, the Association is offering a payment plan for RailNation:DC 2024 if you register BEFORE December 15, 2023.

  • Register between November 14th and November 30th, and we’ll process four payments of $75, one each in November, December, January, and February.
  • Register between December 1st and December 15th, and we’ll process three payments of $100, one each in December, January, and February
  • Paid-in-full registrations are available beginning November 6th. Staff assistance is not needed to process payment. You can register and pay-in-full for RailNation:DC2024 here.
  • After December 15, paid-in-full registrations will only be available to registrants.

There are current technological barriers that we must work around. This means that staff will have to assist in setting up the payment plan. Staff felt offering manageable payment options was important, so we are happy to work with you. If you’d like to take advantage of the payment plan, email Jonsie Stone at [email protected] with PAYMENT PLAN in the subject line. Also, please include your preferred telephone number in that email. Staff will make arrangements to connect by phone with those interested to facilitate the
payment plan.

*Registration fees are refundable for cancellations received, via email, no later than January 16, 2024, minus a $50 administrative fee. Cancellations after January 16, 2024, will be refundable at 50% plus $50 administrative fee. No refunds will be provided as of February 29, 2024.

*Registration fees may be transferred with a $50 administrative fee.
