                                         CONFERENCE DRESS

Code of Ethics          “I will dress and act in a manner that will bring respect to me and to my
                        school.”

In step with the National FBLA guidelines for conference dress, proper business attire must be worn at all
times during the conference. A major purpose of FBLA is to develop those quality characteristics needed
by individual members in their pursuit of business success and in their function as productive citizens in
our society. Students and advisers must recognize the importance of presenting a professional image
that reflects integrity and self-confidence. Proper attire during the state conference is required because a
professional presence creates an atmosphere of dignity and enthusiasm that best represents FBLA and
its goals for developing leaders.

       The opening General Session and the Awards Session attire will be appropriate
        business dress. The conference is not over until after the Awards Session. Please
        follow through properly.

       Name badges must be worn during the entire conference. However, do not wear
        name badges outside the conference site.

ADVISERS are responsible for informing members of the dress guidelines and for helping
members learn to dress in acceptable business attire. Advisers should set an example for
members by dressing in an appropriate business fashion. Test administrators are instructed to make
final decisions of whether or not to allow event testing/participation for those not following conference
dress codes. Failure to follow dress code will result in disqualification.

Remember, ADVISERS are responsible for enforcing the dress guidelines before the conference. Please
do not place the conference administrators in the embarrassing position of having to call anyone down on
dress problems.

FBLA advisers have an excellent reputation and are viewed with respect for the outstanding
service they provide young people. As an adviser, you have a responsibility to make sure that
at every FBLA function your actions make a positive contribution to extending that reputation.

Without the support of all advisers, the continued success of Louisiana FBLA may not continue.
If the conduct of Louisiana FBLA student members does remain at the highest level in regard to
respect and decorum, Louisiana FBLA may not be welcomed at hotels, conference centers, or
universities. Consequently, the Louisiana State Committee has recommended that the State
Adviser develop a code of conduct to help all advisers clearly understand their responsibilities.

 Below are responsibilities that advisers are required to fulfill.

    1. Advisers are to supervise their students at all times. This includes chaperoning their
       students in hotels, on tours, during conference sessions, and for all other FBLA activities
       that their students are involved.
    2. Advisers have the responsibility to see that their students attend all conference sessions.
    3. Advisers have the responsibility to see that their students are respectful and attentive at
       all conference sessions.
    4. Advisers have the responsibility to see that their students follow the FBLA Member Code
       of Conduct.
    5. Advisers are to administer tests and/or monitor interview and skilled events.




                                                                                                          6
                                     FBLA-PBL DRESS CODE

FBLA-PBL members and advisers should develop an awareness of the image one’s
appearance projects. The purpose of the dress code is to uphold the professional image of the
association and its members and to prepare students for the business world. Appropriate attire
is required for all attendees – advisers, members, and guests – at all general sessions,
competitive events, regional meetings, workshops, and other activities unless otherwise stated
in the conference program. Conference name badges are part of this dress code and must be
worn for all conference functions. For safety reasons, do not wear name badges when touring.

BEHAVIOR

FBLA-PBL GOAL
“Develop character, prepare for useful citizenship, and foster patriotism.”

Behavior is occasionally a problem when so many excited, energetic FBLAers come together.
Please remember that we are paying guests of the hotels we occupy-as well as other guests.
Be considerate of those around you by being quiet, courteous, and considerate. The adviser
should know at all times where the students are, give or deny permissions, and set limits for
students. Security will be posted each night and will report any problems directly to the State
Adviser. Chapters with students causing damage or problems could incur additional expenses
for their chapter(s). Let’s make sure we are always welcome at a hotel property!

      Participants are expected to attend and be on time for all events. They should not leave
       a session until it is adjourned unless it is absolutely necessary. When leaving, do so
       quietly.

      Possession of a weapon or any object that can pose a danger to conference delegates
       will result in the offending student being sent home immediately at the expense of the
       parent or guardian.

      Infractions of any state conference rule will result in the student being disciplined and/or
       sent home at the expense of the parent or guardian. Decisions will be made by the
       State Chair.

       Events, Entrepreneurship, Impromptu Speaking, Parliamentary Procedure, Business
       Ethics, Global Business, Marketing, Banking and Financial Systems, Emerging Business
       Issues, and Public Speaking I and II), visit exhibits and campaign areas, and learn how
       active involvement in FBLA can enrich their careers.

       Interview times will be pre-assigned to competitors for Sunday.

                                         VOTING DELEGATES


Each chapter is entitled to select two (2) chapter members to serve as voting delegates for the
election of state officers (President, Secretary, Treasurer and Reporter). Voting Delegate Ribbons
will be included in your state conference registration packet. The adviser is expected to
discuss candidate selection with the Voting delegates and chapter members. Voting delegate
ribbons must be worn to the voting delegates meeting. No one will be allowed into the voting
delegates meeting after 4:00 p.m.

Selection of voting delegates is the responsibility of the individual chapter. It is suggested that the
delegates be responsible students who are aware of or have knowledge of what will be required of
a state officer. Please instruct students about this.

Chapters are not required to send two voting delegates. One may attend; however, that delegate
will represent the only vote the chapter can receive. If you register only one voting delegate on your
excel registration file, you will only receive one voting delegate ribbon.

Chapter voting delegates must attend the Opening General Session. The question and
answer session will follow the campaign speeches during the Opening General Session.
Voting delegate ribbons MUST be worn at the Voting Delegates Meeting.

   The topic to be researched and presented during the 2010 State and National Leadership
   Conferences will be:

   There is a great deal of emphasis in our economy to build and operate businesses in an
   environmentally efficient manner. Should state or federal government offer special incentives to
   companies that choose to build with green materials, harness green power, and employ other
   green tactics in their operations? Be prepared to argue the affirmative, that yes, the government
   should offer incentives in order to encourage businesses to build green; or be prepared to argue
   the negative, that no, the government should not subsidize overhead costs of businesses that
   build or operate in an environmentally efficient manner.

Business Presentation. Participants will create a multimedia presentation around the topic
assigned below. Each presentation may be built using any platform or media chosen by the
competitors; however, all submissions must be ready for the judges to “plug and play” without any

additional requirements. Presentations for state competition MUST be submitted to the FBLA
State Chair on or before March 4 **NEW DATE**.

   and National Leadership Conference will be:

   The CEO of your company has asked you to present information on how the company should be
   using social media to communicate with the clients. Select one or more types of social media that
   can be used for communicating to the company’s clients. Several points to include are tips, lingo,
   privacy issues, social networking, micro blogging, etc.

Web Site Design. Participants will create a web site around the topic assigned below. The web

to the State Adviser/Chair in a manila envelope with the candidate’s name and school on the front

GENERAL SESSION on Sunday night. NO nominating speeches will be made. Speeches must be
presented by the individual candidate. No other individual may assist in the delivery of the
campaign speech. The candidate must manage any props or special effects with no assistance
from any other individual.

   secretary, and president will answer questions from the stage in that order. Voting delegates
   and members will have the opportunity to ask questions from a microphone positioned on the
   auditorium floor. There will be a maximum of 7 minutes of questions and answers for each
   respective office.

2. Voting delegate ribbons are included in your state conference registration packet.

3. Candidates will receive campaign table assignments at the candidates’ meeting at 3:00 p.m. in
   the stage area on Sunday. Candidates will set up their campaign booths from 8:30 to
   10:00 p.m. in Cypress II. Campaign booths will be open at 7:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Monday
   for members to visit with the candidates. Campaign materials may consist of

   Those assisting with the campaign booth, however, may dress in order to meet a
   candidate’s campaign theme but must remain in the designated campaign room. These
   guidelines are for the purpose of focusing attention on the candidate’s qualifications rather than
   their campaign materials.

4. State officer candidates should make sure that they store or take to their room items of
   high value when they are not in use at the booth. Louisiana FBLA, Inc. is not responsible
   for any items in your campaign booths.

5. Signs or campaign posters must not be displayed outside the campaign area except
   before the start of the Opening General Session, but delegates must carry them.

ATTENDANCE TO NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE

All advisers, student members, and chaperones must travel with the state delegation.
Advisers, please explain to your members the conditions required for them to compete at the
national level representing Louisiana. Do not assign a member to an event if they cannot travel
with the state chapter as required. Inform them of the date of the national conference, and explain
to them that cannot meet us in Orlando because another event or vacation conflicts. This is not a
new rule, but I want to make sure all advisers properly apprise all students, administrators, and
parents.

Before any student will be allowed to compete at the state conference, verification that all parties
fully understand this requirement must be substantiated by their signatures. Make copies of this
page for the necessary signatures. This must be submitted with your state registration.




I understand that in order to represent the Louisiana State Chapter in national competition all
guideline and policies must be followed. I understand that any competitor representing the
Louisiana FBLA State Chapter must travel with the state delegation and must take part in all
required activities, meetings, and sessions before and during the conference. An adviser or
chaperone representing the local chapter (school) must accompany any competitor(s) from that
local chapter.
