SLC Policies/Procedures:
Chapters may make changes in competitors until February 1, 2020.  If a student drops and will no longer participate in the competitive events program at the SLC, the chapter adviser must notify the region adviser.  It is the region adviser’s responsibility to notify the adviser of the next competitor’s eligibility to attend the SLC.

If a chapter is eligible for members at large to attend the SLC based on chapter membership, it is the chapter adviser’s responsibility to apply for permission for those members to attend.  Complete the following online form and wait for approval from Kristi Ryland, State Adviser:  https://pafbla.wufoo.com/forms/qqi6c4u1o1671c/

Once chapters submit registration and lodging requests, separate invoices for registration and lodging will be sent to chapter advisers by email.  This invoice should be used by school systems to process payment.

Schools may submit payment by school check, personal check, money order, bank transfer/ACH, and credit card.  Cash will not be accepted; cash should not be mailed.  Schools may submit a purchase order to cover costs, but full payment is due by the published deadline.  Chapters may also submit a “Chapter Payment Plan” option which will spread out and defer required payments.

Full SLC registration payment must be postmarked no later than January 20, 2020.
Full SLC lodging payment must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2020.
Exceptions:  purchase orders, chapter payment plans (must abide by published dates).

PA FBLA will be able to email invoices directly to parents for their child’s portion of their SLC expenses so that they may pay directly by credit card or bank transfer.  If that is an option, please complete the following online form.  Their payments will be credited to your chapter’s account.

A chapter’s lodging priority is established by the 1st submission date of the lodging forms.  Updates may be made to registration and lodging without changing a chapter’s “place in line.”  A chapter will lose its place in line if:
1.  lodging payment is not postmarked by January 31, 2020.
2.  Purchase order is not emailed/postmarked by January 31, 2020.
3.  Chapter payment plan is not submitted by January 31, 2020 (may be revised as necessary).

PA FBLA will not seek roommates for advisers/guests/chaperones or students, nor will PA FBLA arbitrarily place individuals in rooms to maximize a room.  If a chapter wishes to have roommates for advisers or students, the chapter must make its own arrangements with other schools and place that information on the appropriate lodging form.  The “place in line” date for a chapter sharing with other schools is based on the latest initial submission date of the sharing chapters.  For example, if Chapter A (12/03) wants to share with Chapter B (12/10) and Chapter C (12/20), all three chapters’ place in line would be determined by Chapter C’s 12/20 submission deadline, not Chapter A’s 12/03 deadline.
