Tennessee CTSO Fall Leadership Conference (FLC) Registration

Each FLC is open to active and aspiring members of any of the seven Tennessee Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO). Only CTSO chapter advisors may submit this form to register for a conference.

All seven Tennessee CTSOs will come together for three one-day regional leadership conferences this fall. You are highly encouraged to attend the conference that is closest to your school. The conference registration fee is $30 per attendee and will include leadership training, a conference t-shirt, and lunch. Conference registration for each location will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis. Each FLC site will accommodate up to 800 attendees, so please register and submit your payments early. Registration will open TODAY at 8 a.m. CDT.
