What pre-conference workshops are being held? 
Pre-conference sessions take place on Tuesday, May 7, 2023. The sessions have yet to be scheduled. Please check this page for pre-conference sessions. 

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 Greg Smith at smithg@floridaliteracy.org if you require additional documentation of attendance.


How do I make a hotel registration?
You can make reservations directly with The Orlando Marriott Lake Mary on the hotel website. Conference room rates begin at $135 per night.

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, 2024. Please send to chapmans@floridaliteracy.org. A $25 administrative fee will apply to all cancellation requests; refunds will be issued 4-6 weeks after the conference. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after April 25, 2024 or for “No-Show” registrants. Membership fees are nonrefundable.

I can’t make it to the conference. Can I send someone in my place?
If you are unable to attend for any reason, you may transfer your registration to another individual for free. The registrant must provide a written request and a complete registration form for the replacement person by May 4, 2023. The replacement must be of equal value. Please send the request to smithg@floridaliteracy.org.

Substitution requests received after May 4, 2024 will be processed on-site.  

Is there a paper application?
No. We highly recommend using the Eventbrite registration portal!

Can I get the discounted rate, even though it’s after the deadline?
Attendees only qualify for discounts during the published discounted rate date ranges. If the deadline has passed, the discount is no longer available.
