Chapter Permission Forms—The Chapter Permission Form, found under Events, National Fall Leadership Conference should be completed to provide you with the support needed from your school district to attend the National Fall Leadership Conference. This form is for your personal use and should not be sent to Nebraska FBLA.
Medical Release Forms—Each student, adviser, and guest must complete a Medical Release Form when traveling to a national conference. You may use the Medical Release Form found on the Nebraska website under Events, National Fall Leadership Conference or use your school district’s form. The chapter adviser or person responsible for your students should keep a copy of the Medical Release Forms. These forms are for your personal use and should not be sent to Nebraska FBLA
Students Are Expected to Travel with Local Adviser—Nebraska FBLA expects that students traveling to the NFLC are sponsored by their local chapter adviser or a school chaperone. If a special circumstance arises and a student is attending the NFLC without his/her local adviser, it is the responsibility of the local adviser to ask another FBLA adviser to attend the conference to be responsible for the student. As a courtesy, the school district or chapter should offer a stipend (up to 50% of travel costs) to the sponsoring adviser.
The Independent Delegate form found under Conferences, National Fall Leadership Conference, may be used as the appropriate documentation between your school district and the sponsoring school district, or you may use a form provided by your school district. The Independent Delegate form is for your use and should not be sent to Nebraska FBLA.
