The total registration fee is made up of three parts

Part 1: FBD General Conference Fee

Everyone is required to pay this fee once each conference attendance.

Part 2: Association Registration Fee

Everyone must pay at least one association registration fee. You must register for any association in which you are listed in the program as a presenter, moderator/discussant, panelist, etc.

If you are registering for more than one association, you will need to contact the Secretary/Treasurer, Kelly Noe, to obtain the password to add more than one association. The fees on the regular registration already include the FBD fee and selecting multiple associations there will result in overpayment of those fees which will have to be refunded at a later date.

Part 3: Optional Conference Fees

These are optional fees you may elect to pay to attend the FBD Awards Banquet and Reception or to bring a guest to certain FBD or other association conference events.
