FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you don't see the answer to your question here, feel free to contact us at events@unitedway.org.


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

The short answer: whatever inspires you to change the world! This isn’t a formal event, so leave the top hat and tails at home. Business casual is how most people define their chosen wardrobe. Fall in Fort Lauderdale means temps will be around 83°F (28°C).


WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Your passion. Your purpose. And your planner! For any arts and crafts, we’ll provide the supplies. Our conference app will provide more details on specific sessions and activities.


WHAT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES WILL I HAVE AT THIS EVENT?

It’s not just networking - it's new working! Beyond casual conversations during breaks and receptions, our schedule includes opportunities to engage in collaborative activities and more with people around the world building stronger communities. Through the app and on-site, we’ll encourage dialogue designed to foster meaningful relationships around the many issues we’re facing in our fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.


WHAT IS THE HOST CITY EVENT?

The Host City Event is an evening activity hosted by our friends at the United Way of Broward County, designed to welcome you to the city and showcase Fort Lauderdale. This year's event will be a dinner cruise through the waterways of Fort Lauderdale, and tickets can be purchased when you register.


WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE IN FORT LAUDERDALE?

When booking your travel, plan to arrive on Sunday, September 8 so you're well-rested when our opening session begins bright and early on Monday, September 9. The program will wrap up by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11.

United Ways outside the U.S. and Canada are not eligible for flex credit use.

Check your United Way flexible credit balance anytime. If you choose to use your flex credits to pay for this event, when you get to the payment screen while registering, choose “Flexible Credits."

HOW DO I CLAIM TRAVEL REIMBURSEMENT FROM MY UNITED WAY'S FLEXIBLE CREDITS?

If you would like to be reimbursed for your travel expenses from your flexible credit account, you can submit your expenses and they will be processed after the event. Each registrant will receive a digital travel reimbursement form about a week after the event ends. Once this form is sent, it must be completed within 15 business days, after which further reimbursements cannot be processed. You do not need to submit your receipts with this form, though we do encourage you to keep them for your records.


WHAT'S THE PER DIEM FOR THIS EVENT?

The per diem allowed when requesting reimbursement from flexible credits covers hotel and food expenses. For this event, the total per diem allowed for each attendee is $720.
