May I attend the pre-conference sessions without attending the Conference?
Yes

Can I receive professional development in-service points/hours for attendance?
Yes! For many individuals, conference attendance will help fulfill your in-service professional development requirements. Local school districts or state colleges do the actual awarding of the in-service points for public programs. Each district or college may have slightly different procedures for awarding such points. You will need to check with the appropriate staff person at your institution to complete the required procedures. FLC will be distributing certificates for continuing education hours to individuals who complete the appropriate documentation. You must pre-register for this option on the registration form.

Contact Nicole Caban, Education and Training Coordinator at ncaban@floridaliteracy.org if you require additional documentation of attendance.

How do I register as a member or non-member?

Do I already have to be a member to take advantage of the discounted member rate?

We have an Organizational Membership. How many people from my organization can attend the conference at the membership rate?
FLC has waived its limit on discounted (member rate) registrations for 2021. Therefore, programs can have as many people as they would like to register under their organizational membership. Learn more about FLC membership options here.

What are your payment options?
Payment may be made via credit and debit card, purchasing card, or invoice request (which can be settled by check). You must select your payment method upon registration. Credit, debit, and purchasing card payments are made during registration. Payments via purchasing card shall be made under the credit/debit card section. If you select invoice request, our office will send an invoice to the email address you provided in the "Buyer Information" section of the form, usually within a week. Fulfillment of the invoice is expected by the payment deadline, but we understand some school districts and other organizations have restrictions about paying for services before they are rendered, so we can be flexible on a case-by-case basis. Please explain under the "comments" section.
