** NLC APG ASSIGNMENTS AND JUDGING
All advisors attending the conference must fulfill an assignment as a contest administrator, proctor, grader, or other conference duty. APG Orientation sessions are offered to acquaint administrators, proctors and graders with their responsibilities. Please plan to attend one of the APG Orientation sessions listed in the conference program schedule.

** NLC JUDGES STILL NEEDED
If you have not selected a conference assignment for the NLC, please sign up to serve as a judge for an event in a different division than that which you service. Advisors who have selected another conference duty are welcome to judge in addition to other assignments. Judges receive a light, complimentary orientation meal immediately prior to the event. Many additional judges are needed to make the conference a success. You are encouraged to invite your chaperones, conference guests and colleagues to serve as a judge. The website for judges’ registration is: www.registermychapter.com/bpamem/JudgesReg.aspx.
