The base lodging is Sunday night, October 29; additional lodging may be scheduled for Saturday, October 28.  All registration and lodging must be done through Blue Panda.  All student attendees must be in the National FBLA membership system in order to be registered and lodged, and data will be imported into Blue Panda after an adviser entering members into the membership system.

All FBLA-HS (grades 9-12) and all FBLA-MS (grades 5-8) are eligible to attend.  There are no attendance restrictions/limits.

To access Blue Panda, go to:  https://app.gobluepanda.com/.  Returning advisers have maintained the same login and password that they used to register for their RLCs, SLW, SLC, and NLC.  If you are uncertain of your password (your school email address is your username), please contact Bruce Boncal, bboncal@pafbla.us, 570.279.6998 cell/texts.

Step-by-step illustrated instructions to register students and advisers/guests/chaperones in Blue Panda.


You must place your FBLA members in the National FBLA membership system before you can register anyone in Blue Panda.

  1. With the roll out of FBLA Connect, only PAID or PENDING members will display in Blue Panda to be registered. Unpaid members will not display in FBLA Connect.  That’s a big change from prior years.

Blue Panda imports members from National FBLA. Remember, you must have created “transitioned” students for members to be considered active and imported; to do that, the students must be immediately paid with a credit card or a purchase order uploaded OR marked “payment by mail” if a check is being sent.  Simply choosing students or entering a name does not make them importable unless they have been transitioned from unpaid to paid/pending status.

Once the students are imported into Blue Panda and marked paid/pending, you can register them for the SLW (and not before). You can register advisers/guests/chaperones at any time as they are not imported.

Step 1: register all your attendees before attempting any lodging

Step 2: place your attendees in housing

Step 3: click “submit” to generate an invoice.

  • You can go in and edit/change your SLW registration/housing as many times as you wish until the September 30, 11:59 pm deadline. It is not a once and done deal.
