What is the difference between being “funded” and having my registration fee waived?

My jurisdiction cannot be funded by FSBPT to attend the Annual Education Meeting. How does my jurisdiction pay for my registration fee?

What forms of payment are accepted for registration fees?

When will I receive my registration packet?
You can pick up your registration packet at the registration desk beginning Thursday, October 19, 2023, at 9:00 a.m.
I have registered but I want to change my educational sessions. How do I adjust my registration?
- Log into the FSBPT Portal
- Select “events”
- Select the “Annual Education Meeting”
- Select “Manage Registration” in the top right
- To the right of your name, select the three dots
- Select “purchase new sessions” (you will not actually need to “purchase” anything)

Will I receive a travel authorization?
If you are a “funded attendee”, you will receive a travel authorization via email with information to book your travel to the meeting. Funded attendees are required to use FSBPT’s travel agency to book flights. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if there is a reason that you cannot use the travel agency. Failure to receive pre-approval to book your own flights could lead to FSBPT not reimbursing you for your airfare.
Other attendees are responsible for their own travel. You can expect to see your travel authorization via email in mid-August. If you have not seen it in your inbox by August 15, please check your spam folder before contacting us. If you don’t see it in your spam folder, please email us at email@example.com.
More information for Funded Attendees
Please note, funded attendees are expected to attend the entire meeting.
How do I know my hotel reservation has been made by FSBPT?
After you book your travel with the travel agency, the travel agency will notify FSBPT staff. FSBPT staff will make your hotel reservations based on your travel itinerary. You will receive a confirmation email from the hotel a few days before the event.
Can I arrive earlier and/or later than listed on my travel authorization for personal reasons?
Yes, but please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will pay for the associated costs.
What can I expect at hotel check-in?
You will be asked to provide a personal credit card and government-issued photo ID when you check in. You will not have a deposit charged to your personal credit card, but it will be used to cover possible incidentals. FSBPT will cover your room charge and taxes. You are responsible for additional charges or additional nights’ stay beyond the Annual Education Meeting dates. If you have questions about check-in times or procedures, please contact the hotel.
When will I receive my expense report form?
