What pre-conference workshops are being held?

May I attend the pre-conference sessions without attending the Conference?
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 Giovanna Kubota, Resource and Communication Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require additional documentation of attendance.

When is my payment due?
To finalize your registration and assure your spot at the conference, we request all registration fees are paid no later than May 4. If you are not paying your fee by credit card at the time you register, we will email an invoice, usually within a week, to the billing contact you provided at registration. Fulfillment of the invoice is expected by the May 4, 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 provide full explanation under the "comments" section if this applies to you.
What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be received in writing no later than April 25, 2023. Please send to email@example.com.

No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after April 25, 2023 or for “No-Show” registrants. Membership fees are nonrefundable.

Can I get the discounted rate, even though it’s after the deadline?
