FCLIR seminars and workshops are open to FCLIR members only, so first be sure that your membership is up-to-date. Our membership year runs from May 1 to April 30. Members may enroll in as many seminars and workshops as they like for no additional fees.

Members must use the online forms to register for seminars and workshops. The initial registration period for fall seminars and workshops is in mid-May. For the spring semester it is in early December of the preceding year.

Enrollment may require a lottery to assign initial registrants to oversubscribed seminars. Registration continues for available seminars after the “lottery deadline”, but some seminars and workshops may be closed or wait-listed only.
