Advisors, we ask that you please plan ahead and meet the deadlines, both online (September 22) and postmark (October 6). We are grateful to our host schools for their extra efforts to welcome us to their “school home,” especially at a time when they are juggling our group along with their student body and shared facilities. As a courtesy to the host school for site and meal preparations, it is important that you please meet the stated deadlines. Thanks!

Your school’s NMASC and District dues must be paid prior to your attendance at the NMASC/District Conference. If you have not yet paid your NMASC and District dues, please complete and submit the online NMASC Membership Form, following the directions on the form.

Dress for the conference is school-appropriate clothing. Students are encouraged to wear council or school t-shirts with jeans or modest shorts (pending weather) is appropriate. Face masks will be in compliane with the current statewide executive orders at the time of District Fall Conferences.

Each school should be prepared with a roll call (approx 30 seconds).

Light snacks and lunch will be provided.

A school may register as many students as it wishes, as long as at least one advisor from the school attends the conference and stays at the site with the students.

District officers must register and be paid by their schools.

Every student and adult (advisor/driver/parent, etc.) must pay registration fee. Fees must be paid in the exact amount required. At no time will purchase orders, cash payments, credit card payments, or payments made by individuals be accepted. Fees include cost of the conference and meals/snacks.

Please be diligent to only register the number of students that you are bringing. No refunds will be given, however you can make student substitutions with no penalty. We do not need to know your students’ names ahead of time; please bring a list of their names with you when you arrive at the conference.
