2024 Consumer Travel Stipend Program

FISD recognizes:

  • The financial challenges that our consumer members face in attending an extended conference like WFIC
  • The important role that consumers play at WFIC – source of key perspectives and driver of sponsorship revenue

 

FISD is offering member consumers a travel stipend of up to $1,750 per person – up 17% from 2022:

Covered Expenses: 

  • WFIC costs include admission fees, airfare, other transportation, and hotel for up to five nights at the conference hotel
  • The stipend is in addition to the existing discounted admission rate that is offered to all member consumers – $650.

Limits on Stipend:

  • Must work for an FISD member whose dues are paid through September 2024

Reimbursement:

  • Consumer delegate will need to pay “upfront” for conference admission and travel accommodations (including conference hotel).
  • Consumer delegate will be reimbursed after WFIC, and only if delegate attends and actively engages with the other attendees and sponsors by:
    • Attending the sponsors-only reception on the evening of Sunday, September 15 at the conference hotel.
    • Joining the WFIC 2024 event app and entertaining requests from other event attendees for meetings.
  • FISD will not be responsible for any change or cancellation penalties incurred by the attendee even if the event is postponed or cancelled.
