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 Tax Policy Forum is an informal event and business casual is recommended. The Mary Gates Learning Center is known to run cool, so although it’ll be summer, we recommend bringing a sweater or scarf just in case! Attendees should plan to wear business attire for their hill meetings, and comfortable shoes – you’ll be doing a lot of walking.


WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Information about local financial stability or free tax preparation initiatives at your United Way. These will make great “Leave Behinds” for your meetings on the Hill. We recommend 6-8 copies of each.


WHAT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES WILL I HAVE AT THIS EVENT?

On Tuesday, June 11th we’ll provide the opportunity to join your colleagues at a networking dinner in Alexandria, Virginia.


WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE IN ALEXANDRIA?

  • If you’d like to attend the option Advocacy 101 Bootcamp, please arrive by 2:00pm on Tuesday, June 11
  • If you’d like to attend the networking dinner, please arrive by 6:00pm on Tuesday, June 11
  • If you’re only attending the Forum and Hill Day, please arrive no later than 9:00am on Wednesday, June 12

We’re so sorry you can’t make it this year! Cancellations made on or before May 10 will be subject to a $100 cancellation fee; cancellations made after May 10 are non-refundable. To make changes or cancel your registration, please click here.


CAN I PAY WITH FLEXIBLE CREDITS?

Yes, you can! United Way staff and volunteers can pay for the event directly with flexible credits, and after the event can submit your travel, hotel and food expenses for reimbursement (within reasonable limits). Please note that only staff from United Ways eligible to receive flexible credits may use them at this event. 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."

More details on UWW's flexible credit policy for both this event and other opportunities can be found on United Way Online. If you have any additional questions about flexible credits, please contact Ask United Way.


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.
