   association with non-conference individuals, or activities that endanger self or others.

2. Participants shall keep their advisors informed of activities and whereabouts AT ALL TIMES.
   Accidents, injuries, or illnesses must be reported to the local or state advisor immediately. Chapter
   advisers are responsible for their own students.

3. No alcoholic beverages or narcotics of any form shall be possessed at any time, under any
   circumstances. Use or possession of such substances may subject the member to criminal

4. Conference members are guests of hotels and/or convention properties and must not deface or
   destroy property. Do not throw ANYTHING out of the windows or over balconies. All trash
   (this includes pizza boxes, bottles, cans, etc.) must be placed in the proper receptacles and NOT

                        CONFERENCE/HOTEL ETIQUETTE

 There are several points to remember that will make the conference much more pleasant for all

1. Be considerate! Use indoor voices. Remember that there are guests other than CTSO members
   in the hotel. A loud conversation in the hallway or lobby or loud music from your guest room may
   be annoying to other hotel guests.

2. Be on time! Use your conference program guide to select workshops you are interested in
   attending. Be respectful of the presenter and stay for the entire session.

3. Be prepared! Bring a pen and paper to the workshops to take notes. Take notes so that you may
   take the information back to your local chapter and put it into action.

4. Be a good leader! Dress professionally for all workshops and general sessions. Never be in the
   hallways or lobby areas in your swimwear, bare feet, or pajamas and slippers. Always
   observe curfew!

5. Be respectful! Give your full attention to the presenter or speaker. Limit your side conversations
   until after the workshop or general session is over. Always remain in your seat for the entire
   workshop or general session, unless otherwise instructed.

6. Be friendly! A primary goal of attending a conference, other than attending exciting workshops,
   is to get to know CTSO members from across the state. Learn to network and make new friends.

7. Be attentive! Turn off all electronic devices (cell phones, radios, games, cd players, etc.) during
   the conference.
