*NLC REGISTRATION OPENED YESTERDAY
Please be advised that registration and hotel reservations for the 2014 National Leadership Conference opened yesterday. Remember, schools are assigned to the JW Marriott Hotel on a first-come first-served basis.
All information and registration information is available online at www.bpa.org/nlc/. I strongly encourage you to go online and download the various documents in preparation for the online registration system to open. Registration questions for the national conference can be directed to Shawna Gfroerer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*NLC VOTING DELEGATES NEEDED
Michigan has five voting delegates positions for the 2014 national conference. If you have students who are interested in serving as a voting delegate at the conference, please have them visit www.michiganbpa.org/nlc-voting-delegate-postsecondary for information about serving as a voting delegate. The meeting schedule and sign-up form is located on that page. Rita Smallcombe from Davenport University-Kalamazoo has agreed to serve as our Head Voting Delegate for the Postsecondary Division. Any questions can be directed to Rita at email@example.com.
NLC TRADING PINS
Place your order for trading pins before our state conference for the secondary division takes place. If your chapter is attending the national conference, please visit our website at www.michiganbpa.org/nlc-trading-pins. I’m sure your students will want to participate in the ever-so-popular trading pin excitement during the national conference. Trading pins sell out fast, so don’t delay!
STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT ATTENDING THE NLC
If you have students who qualified to attend the national conference, but they are not attending, please let me know. I can notify an alternate in that event if your student is not attending. Please let me know no later than Monday, March 3, 2014.
NLC LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
Remember, the NLC Leadership Academy is open to postsecondary students as well. In addition, postsecondary students may sign up to be a conference intern. Click on the national leadership academy and intern links on the NLC website for more information.
