FLIBS COVID-19 Current Workshop Status


Dear FLIBS Workshop Participant,

We would first like to thank you for choosing FLIBS to be your IB PD provider for your IB PD needs. We realize that due to current events everyone is in the process of reviewing their plans for the next several months. So, we appreciate your patience and support during these uncertain times.

Unfortunately, the virulence and endurance of the COVID-19 epidemic have forced us to cancel the upcoming IB workshop scheduled for SEPTEMBER 13th-16th, 2020, in the interest of your safety and health. We appreciate your business, and we are deeply sorry to make this announcement.

If you were registered for the upcoming September Event, we ask that you contact us to inform us of your wishes regarding your registrations for this workshop.

For September registrants ONLY,

You may receive:

  • A full refund (if you paid via credit card fewer than 60 days ago, we'll refund your credit card, please let us know the email address to send the refund receipt; if you used a credit card 61 or more days ago or paid by check, we'll send you a check (for which we'll need to know to whom to make the check and the address to which we should send it)
  • Re-registration at a later MYP/PYP workshop. If this is your choice, please know that we have several opportunities for you to attend one of our upcoming IB PD workshops. The FLIBS IB Professional Development Schedule for October 2020-June 2021 is listed below and you may access it using the FLIBS Events tab on this website.
  • A credit for an undetermined future FLIBS workshop.

As we all are responding to the everchanging conditions we are facing, please know that we at FLIBS are committed to continue to offer you the best IB Professional Development experience. We wish you good health and are hopeful that we will continue to be the choice for your IB Professional Development needs.
