Conference planning behind the scenes l.jpg

CONFERENCE PLANNING: BEHIND THE SCENES

  • Cause/Effect

    • Setbacks from FRC have caused the chapter to adjust the budget for the year

      • Unable to provide food for tonight’s meeting

      • Chapter dues “help”

    • A comment box will be placed on the chapter’s website (www.eng.fsu.edu/NSBE) for you to voice you questions and concerns


Conference planning behind the scenes13 l.jpg

CONFERENCE PLANNING: BEHIND THE SCENES

  • For Future Reference

    • If there are questions or concerns, please address them to your Conference Planning Chair, Treasurer, or President as soon as you have them

    • During Conference season, please make your decisions as soon as you possibly can.

      • Planning is easier with a definite number (or a relatively close count) of participants to ensure the chapter doesn’t lose a large amount of money


Conference planning behind the scenes14 l.jpg

CONFERENCE PLANNING: BEHIND THE SCENES

  • Conference Preparations

    • Fall Regional Conference (FRC)

      • Chapter accommodations include only hotel and travel

      • Food is generally not provided unless you are a graduating senior (luncheon) or PCI student

    • National Convention

      • Same as FRC, chapter provides you with a package deal for hotel & round trip transportation

      • NSBE does not provide food, but there are several hospitality suites, lunches, etc. that are company-sponsored


Why should you pay for chapter accommodations l.jpg

WHY SHOULD YOU PAY FOR CHAPTER ACCOMMODATIONS?

The stress of planning your own trip is eliminated

Travel & hotel are PACKAGED together so you pay one set price

It provides a time for the chapter to bond with each other

It brings the price down for everyone else that is going

Travel & hotel are PACKAGED together so you pay one set price
