[MI BPA 2017-2018] Tuesday Tipster #27 (PS)

UPCOMING DATES & DEADLINES
April 1:
 NLC Registration and Hotel Reservation Deadlines
April 1:  Ambassador Torch Awards Deadline
In light of the fact that our Secondary SLC is this week, and I just arrived at the hotel, this week's Tuesday Tipster is a repeat of information from last week. New details will be forthcoming next week.

NLC REGISTRATION IS OPEN
Registration for the national leadership conference is now open. All NLC details can be found online at www.bpa.org/nlc.

PRESUBMITTED EVENTS FOR NLC
As indicated at the SLC Awards Session, students who qualified for events that require presubmitted materials should wait for me to provide some details about how to presubmit their events. There were quite a few students who submitted things incorrectly for state conference, but we accepted the items. I want to make sure everything is done correctly for national competition in order to avoid disqualification. I will send information after the Secondary SLC, the week of March 19, 2018.

GUIDELINES AND SOFTWARE
Please carefully review the WSAP Guidelines Handbook for your competitive events, including deadlines for submission of materials and software listings. For a complete list of software provided at NLC, please review the software listing in the WSAP Guidelines Handbook.

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. Information is available online at www.bpa.org/nlc/leadershipacademy.
