PRACTICE CERTIFICATION EXAMS
Many BPA competitions have a certification component. Help your students prepare for these exams by visiting the MeasureUp website located at www.measureup.com/. This site offers practice exams for various certification exams that will be offered at the national conference.

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.
