Guidelines for Granting Waivers for Renewal Fees - Approved 12/13/2011

The NC Board of Registration for Foresters has the authority, under NC Administrative Code, to waive registration fees in certain circumstances.

The Board shall waive the annual forty dollar [$40.00] renewal fee for military deployment, extended illness, or other similar circumstances based upon a written petition from the Registered Forester [RF] or the Registered Forester's agent [21 NCAC 20 .0106]. All requests must be in writing. The petition should be addressed to the Board and describe in detail the reason for requesting a waiver. When reviewing requests not related to military deployment or extended illness, the Board will base its decision on the RF's ability to pay the fee.
