5. FALL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE (FLC) HOTEL CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION FORM

In the Conference Registration Guide, the FLC Hotel Credit Card Authorization link is for the Hyatt Regency Bellevue’s credit card form. We’ve decided it’s better if you complete MY Hotel Credit Card Authorization Form instead, so I can track them and check to make sure the amount authorized is sufficient to cover the rooms.

Authorization Form. Attached is the Hotel Credit Card Authorization Form we would like you to use for FLC.

Hyatt. The Hyatt (where we are staying for FLC and where the conference will take place) hasn’t accepted POs for two years now--they will only accept credit card payments.

Start the Process. Please start the process with your bookkeepers now to be able to secure a credit card by October 5, when FLC registration closes.

Email or Fax to Nancy Hanlon. Email or fax your Hotel Credit Card Authorization Form(s) to me (Email: [email protected] or Fax: 206.492.2558).

ASB Payments / CTE Payments. Often, chapters need to use an ASB credit card for student housing and a CTE credit card for the advisor housing. Chaperone housing payment varies.

Hotel Delivery. I will deliver the Hotel Credit Card Authorization Form to them when I deliver the reservation information shortly after registration closes on October 5.

No Credit Card? If your school and/or district does not have a credit card you can use for FLC housing, please contact Nancy Hanlon.
