WELCOME TO NEW ORLEANS! The 2014 National Fall Leadership Conferences (NFLCs) are designed to help you Step Up to the Challenge in the coming year! The board of directors, national officers, and national staff welcome you to this year’s NFLCs. You have demonstrated your commitment to leadership excellence by being here this weekend. Maximize your investment by participating in as many workshops and other activities as you can.

GENERAL INFORMATION CONFERENCE HEADQUARTERS Conference staff will be available at Registration Desk 2 on the third floor at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside on Friday and Saturday during regular conference hours. NAME BADGES Conference badges must be worn to all conference activities, including the social event. Requests for replacement badges may be made at the registration desk or in conference headquarters. There is a $5 charge for a replacement name badge. This fee must be paid in full onsite. TRAVEL ETIQUETTE If traveling by taxi, ask for the fare before departure. Keep change handy for bellmen and doormen tips and similar situations. Generally, a 15% tip is appropriate for servers and cab drivers for good service. CHAPERONES The National Association of Secondary School Principals requires adult chaperones for high school students attending conferences such as this one. FBLA‑PBL requires compliance with this policy. Chaperones should enforce dress code and curfews, ensure that students attend conference activities, and follow common safety practices. MEMBERS WITH DISABILITIES Members with disabilities add an important dimension to the organization. FBLA‑PBL is committed to working with these members to ensure that they receive maximum benefit from the conference activities. Contact a representative of the national staff if you have particular needs or requirements. CURFEW Delegates at FBLA‑PBL conferences are expected to follow the published curfew times. This requirement is designed both to protect individual delegates and to respect other guests in the hotels we are using for our meetings. Hotel security will enforce the published curfews, which are to be interpreted as being the time by which members should be in their own rooms and quiet for the night.

Obey all local, state, and federal laws. 3. Avoid conduct not conducive to an educational conference. Such conduct includes, but is not limited to, actions disrupting the businesslike atmosphere, association with nonconference individuals, or activities that endanger self or others (running in the general sessions, standing on chairs, using laser pointers during workshops, bodysurfing at dances, etc.) 4. Keep your advisers informed of your activities and whereabouts at all times. Accidents, injuries, and illnesses must be reported to the local or state advisers immediately. 5.
