Housing Policy

Each year SC FBLA contracts with hotels to provide housing for students, advisers, chaperones and guests who attend the State Leadership Conference (SLC).  The housing or hotel room blocks are negotiated to provide and and appropriate accommodations at the best possible price. Securing these hotels requires that SC FBLA guarantee a level of usage by attendees and includes a financial liability for the organization. 

Housing Requirement

FBLA Members, advisers, and parents/guardians/chaperones/guests are required to stay in a hotel that is part of the FBLA housing block of hotels.  FBLA requires full conference registration from student members, advisers, and school-approved chaperones.  Student members who are not staying in an official FBLA hotel will not be considered full conference registrants and therefore not permitted to compete.  The available of a preferred room type will not provide an exemption from this policy. 

Eligibility for Housing

Only FBLA Members, advisers, and parents/guardians/chaperones/guests are eligible to take advantage of the FBLA-negotiated conference room rates within the FBLA housing block.

Extenuating Circumstances

If there are extenuating circumstances, a written request for waiver may be submitted to the state adviser for consideration.
