Delegate Compensation and Check-in Information

Delegates will be paid for the four (4) convention days plus two (2) travel days (one day travel to the convention and one day travel from the convention) at the per diem rate established for Las Vegas by the Internal Revenue Service. That rate is $189.00 for Fiscal Year (“FY”) 2022, which expires on September 30, 2022; information concerning the FY 2023 per diem, which begins on October 1, 2022, will be provided as soon as it becomes available. All delegates also will be paid $600 toward their travel to and from the convention. The check for travel and an advance per diem will be available to you when you register, and arrangements will be made to enable you to cash your check at the hotel.

The best arrival day for the convention is Sunday, October 9, and you should try to arrive as early in the afternoon as possible. Hotel check-in begins at 4:00 p.m. and check-out is 11:00 a.m. If airline schedules do not permit an early enough arrival on Sunday you should consider a Saturday arrival, so that you can register in time to participate in the BLET-sponsored events on Sunday evening. Bear in mind, however, that the BLET room block at the hotel is significantly smaller on Saturday evening, and first-come, first-served is the rule.

Delegate Registration will take place at the Bally’s Event Center in the Gold Ballroom. Registration is mandatory and will be held on Sunday, October 9, from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., and on Monday, October 10, from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 Noon. At registration, you will receive your BLET Delegate Kit. You also will receive your seat assignment at that time.
