                            TEXAS AWARDS PROGRAM
The Texas Awards Program (TAP) will be on-line soon. Use the TAP for all SLC
competitive event guidelines and rating sheets! While the material is basically the same as
the National Awards Program (NAP), some changes have been made to accommodate our
unique Texas situations and to make it easier for our judges. Failure to follow the TAP may
result in point deductions or even disqualification without recourse.

 All conference and event registrations materials
    must be submitted by the established event and
    conference registration deadlines.
 Any teacher, faculty member or administrator (other
    than a bus-driver only adult) will be construed as an
    ―adviser.‖ Advisers must be clearly marked as
    advisers on the registration form; guests and spouses
    must be clearly marked as guests.
 Every ―adviser‖ must fulfill one or more competitive
    event assignments. Being late for an assignment or
    leaving an assignment before completed will be
    construed as not fulfilling that assignment and all
    chapter entries may be forfeited.
 Each adviser is responsible for ascertaining his/her
    assignments.
 Advisers are to monitor competitors in all portions
    of events to ensure that each competitor adheres to
    the dress code and that name badges are visible.
 All testing materials must be returned to Event
    Headquarters. Disqualification may result if test
    materials are missing, a chapter may be barred from
    entering future SLC events, or state tests may not be
    allowed to be used by the areas.
 All results must remain confidential until the
    awards ceremony. Confidentiality violations may
    result in disqualification of all chapter competitors.
 Advisers must adhere to conference policies,
    regulations and procedures. For any reason, failure
    to attend a meeting, check the bulletin board, pick up
    materials, etc. will not negate an adviser’s or a
    competitor’s responsibility to adhere to policy,
    procedures, regulations and event guidelines.
The help of every adviser is needed and appreciated in
order that a viable competitive event program can be
offered to all our student members. Thanks for doing
your part!

                               CODE OF CONDUCT
FBLA members have an excellent reputation. Your conduct at every FBLA function should make a positive
contribution to extending that reputation. Listed here are rules of conduct for the State Leadership Conference. All
participants will be expected to:

    1.   Behave in a courteous and respectful manner, refraining from language and actions that might bring
         discredit upon themselves, their school, other delegates, advisers, or upon FBLA.
    2.   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 business like atmosphere, association with non-conference individuals, or activities
         that endanger self or others (running in the General Sessions, standing on chairs, using laser pointes during
         workshops, bodysurfing at dances, etc)
    4.   Keep their advisers informed of their activities and whereabouts at all times. Accidents, injuries and
         illnesses must be reported to the Local or state advisers immediately.
    5.   Observe the curfews as listed in the conference program. Local and State advisers as well as security
         personnel will enforce curfews. Curfew is defined as being in your own assigned room by the designated
         hour.
    6.   Act as guests of the hotel and conference center. Participants must obey the rules of these facilities. The
         facilities have the right to ask a delegate or delegates to leave. Do not throw anything out of windows or
         over balconies. Do not run down hallways. Noise should be kept at a reasonable volume, especially in the
         hotels. Remember there are other guests in the hotels that have rights as well. Trash (this includes pizza
         boxes, bottles, cans, etc.) must be placed in the proper receptacles and not left on guest room or meeting
         room floors. Individuals or chapters responsible for damages to any property or furnishings will be
         responsible for its repair or replacement.

Local and State advisers are responsible for the supervision of delegate conduct.

Disregarding or Violating the Code of Conduct
Participants who disregard or violate this code will be subject to disciplinary action, including, but not limited to
forfeiture of privileges to attend further events, confinement to your hotel room, dismissal from the conference, and
being sent home at your own expense. Parents and/or guardians will be notified and FBLA reserves the right to
notify law enforcement.




     I agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and the Dress Code.

names, years or conference city), and return it with the SLC registration materials. The one (1) local adviser with the
highest documented point total who has not been recognized as Adviser of the Year within the last five (5) years will
be selected. The Texas Adviser of the Year will be recognized at the SLC and at the NLC.

                                       Submitted by Cinco Ranch Chapter

Reasons to support this amendment:
1. State officers should be elected at the State Leadership Conference, not at Area Conferences where Area
   Officers are elected.
2. The Bylaws state ―Only candidates approved by the Officer Screening Committee shall be eligible for
   nomination or to hold office.‖ If elections are held at an Area Conference, it is too late for ―approval‖ and if
   problems are identified, it is too late for corrections.
3. Candidates, along with an adviser and a campaign manager, attend screening at the SLC to verify the support of
   the adviser and the local chapter. Advisers and campaign managers may not be a part of the process at Area
   Conferences.
4. It is not equitable for some candidates to face screening, caucus and election at the SLC and others to participate
   only as an after-the-fact formality.
5. The screening process helps ensure that the candidate, the adviser, and the local chapter members understand the
   responsibilities of everyone if the candidate is elected.
6. If there is no vice president to be elected at the Area Meetings at the SLC, those meetings are poorly attended.
   Students feel that the meeting is a waste of time which creates negative feelings about the association.
7. The elected vice president is still required to host a campaign booth at the SLC. This wastes money for
   materials since the candidate has already been elected. The newly elected officer feels that it is all a waste of
   time, too, and the membership does not understand why a booth is required.

Reasons against this amendment:
1. Usually more chapters are present and voting at an Area Conference than attend and vote at an Area Meeting at
   the SLC, so more chapters have a voice in the selection.
2. In Area 6, candidates are screened by a panel of advisers, not student state officers.
3. Elections at an Area Conference may be less of a popularity vote since advisers may be more involved and offer
   more guidance to voting delegates.
