  • Cancelation after October 19 will only be possible with a written statement from a school administrator on district letterhead.

Refund Policy

Registration refund requests must be made in writing by registration deadline for each NFLC to receive a 50% refund.  In the event of school district mandates that happen after registration due to COVID-19, written documentation from an administrator will be required for a full refund

  • If payments were made by check, a check will be written back to your chapter. This may take up to 30 days to process.

Accident Insurance

Arrangements have been made with the Federal Insurance Company to provide accident insurance for purchase to all registered NFLC participants. Each person who purchases this insurance will be covered while in attendance at the NFLC, including traveling directly to and from the conference. Coverage begins at the actual start of the trip to the conference and continues on a 24-hour basis during the trip. Coverage ends when attendees return to their permanent residences. The benefits include up to $25,000 for accidental death or dismemberment, and up to $2,500 for accidental excess medical expenses. The maximum limit of insurance is $500,000 per accident. Coverage is subject to the full terms and conditions in the master policy. To enroll, select the insurance option and make sure to include the $2 fee per person with your conference registration payment. Insurance is not available for onsite registrants, and there are no refunds. Please note this is accident insurance and does not cover illnesses not related to an accident. For a claim against this policy, email finance@fbla.org for verification of coverage and claim information.

COVID-19 Guidelines

FBLA-PBL, Inc. is actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic along with current CDC guidelines for events.  

  • COVID Waiver: Each attendee will need to have a signed waiver prior to receiving registration materials. 
  • Cohort Model: A cohort model will be used so that every attendee can safely experience each of the aspects of fall conferences while still allowing plenty of time for chapter exploration and learning. 
  • Masks: FBLA-PBL will be asking all attendees to wear masks during the conference except when active eating or drinking.   
  • Social Distancing: There will only be an hour at the beginning of the conference where all attendees will be together. Chairs will be as spread-out as possible, and seating will be grouped by cohort assignments. We do ask that everyone observe social distancing as much as possible throughout the host locations. 
  • Vaccination Requirements: The hope is that all attendees will be fully vaccinated for their protection and the protection of others.  The FBLA staff in attendance have all received vaccinations.  
  • Alternative Plans/Cancellation: We are still in a pandemic and regulations from the CDC and local/state governments change often.  If we need to change to a virtual conference, chapters will be offered a full refund if they do not wish to participate in the virtual option or a partial refund if they do.  Any virtual dates will be announced after a cancellation announcement.
