May 10, 2022 – Competitive Event Registration Deadline

Instructions for Members and Advisers:  Registering for the NLC does not register a student member for competitive events. Local advisers and/or student members MUST notify their state adviser with their intent to compete by the deadline set by the state. Please check with your state advisers for the deadline they have for receiving this information.

Members must also be registered for the conference and will not be allowed to compete if they are not registered using the conference registration form and if their registration fee is not paid. (Deadline: June 8, 2022)

Registration Instructions

Judges should register using the Judge Registration Form. Judges do not need to register through the main conference registration form. Judges will pick up their credentials at a dedicated area for judges.

Chaperones and non-adviser faculty members are encouraged to volunteer as judges. Interested individuals should use the registration form listed above.

Meal Cards – $31.00 each
(FBLA & FBLA-ML Only)

Meal cards are an option that can be purchased by attendees. These cards, much like a gift/debit card, can be used at the many food outlets at McCormick Center and the food court in the Expo Hall.

Note: There is no limit on the number of cards that may be pre-ordered, but cards will not be available for purchase onsite.

  • Cost: $31 each ($30 Food Value + $1 Service Fee)
  • Deadline to Purchase: Cards must be purchased prior to June 8, 2022.
  • Questions? Questions regarding meal cards should be directed to nlc@fbla.org.

Please note: McDonald’s Express and Connie’s Pizza are not participating in the meal card offering.

More information on dining options at McCormick Place can be found on the Travel Planning page under Planning of each conference.

Accident Insurance – $2.00 per attendee

Accident insurance is available for purchase from Federal Insurance Company. Those who purchase this insurance will be covered while in attendance at the NLC, including travel directly to and from the conference. Coverage begins at the actual start of the trip to the NLC and continues on a 24-hour basis during the trip. It ends when attendees return to their permanent residences. 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 include the $2 fee per person with your conference registration payment. Refunds are not available.

Please note: This is accident insurance; it does not cover illnesses not related to an accident. Sunburn is not classified as an accident. For a claim against this policy, notify the FBLA-PBL National Center in writing for verification of coverage and claim information.

Please email Robert Smothers, rsmothers@fbla.org, with all cancellation requests by June 8, 2022. There will be no refunds after June 8, 2022.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) requires one adult chaperone per every 15 high school students or 12 middle school students attending NASSP sponsored conferences. Parents/guardians may serve as chaperones and must register online, pay the required registration fee, and attend the entire conference for supervision of the student(s). Please be advised that your local school district may have specific rules that require a higher adult chaperone-to-student ratio. You should follow the rules of your school district if the requirements are higher than those set forth by NASSP sponsored conferences.
