FAQs for Chapter Directors

Do I have to attend NLC Convention?

At least one 2018-2019 NLC Chapter Director from each chapter MUST be in attendance at the 2018 NLC Convention in Houston.  No exceptions! Subsidies for Chapter Directors are only available to those serving the July 2018 - June 2019 programmatic year.


What am I responsible for in terms of payment and what does NLC provide?

All Chapter Directors must pay for their Registration fees for NLC Convention.  Flights and double occupancy hotel rooms will be paid for directly from NLC.


Please put a price alert on flights from your hometown to Houston and alert NLC Programs Director Sean Kolaskar at if prices drop to a low point.


When should I arrive in Houston?

We hope that you will join for the entirety of Convention as it is an important opportunity to get to know and learn from your fellow co-directors. However, Chapter Directors are required to be at Saturdays session.  Additionally for those who are attending for less than the three days, may be responsible for their own hotel rooms costs. Programming for NLC Convention will begin at 11:30 AM on Thursday, July 19.


What steps do I need to take right now?

If you are definitely going to serve as a Chapter Director for the 2018-2019 programmatic year, go ahead and register for Convention now.  More information on choosing your roommates and booking flights will be provided in the coming months.


Speaking of roommates, how do I choose mine?

The Houstonian has a very limited number of double rooms and we have reserved ALL of those for Chapter Directors, therefore you will be assigned a roommate who is also a Chapter Director.  If you choose to room with someone from your from your Chapter who is not a director, you will be responsible for paying for your own hotel room.

NLC will be discussing best practices for allocating funds on a future chapter directors call.
