Acceptance of responsibility and waiver of liability/Photo release

Acceptance of responsibility

Official Delegate Responsibility: I accept the responsibility of serving as the official delegate of my chapter at the Mortar Board National Leadership Conference. I understand that I must inform myself about all matters that will require a vote of my chapter, including matters related to chapter standing and election of national officers. I further understand that it is my duty to vote on behalf of my chapter when a vote is called for. I promise to do this.

All Officers’ Responsibility: I accept the responsibility of serving as an officer of my chapter. I understand that, at the Mortar Board National Leadership Conference, I will have an opportunity to inform myself about all matters related to chapter operations and Mortar Board policies and procedures. I further agree to perform the duties of my office in my chapter to the best of my abilities.

Obligation to participate

I understand that there is a cost to my chapter for my participation in the Mortar Board National Leadership Conference, and I agree to honor my chapter’s trust by attending relevant conference programming in its entirety so that I can learn how to carry out my officer role. I understand that if I must unavoidably be absent from the conference, I must arrange with my chapter president and advisor for a replacement and also notify the National Office of the replacement’s name.

I further agree to participate fully in the Mortar Board National Leadership Conference by ensuring that I have the proper equipment, internet connection, bandwidth and phone services (if needed) to allow for my vigorous and active learning. I agree to participate in the conference from a location that allows me to hear well, see shared screens during the conference, participate in chats, take notes, and otherwise engage fully in the conference.

Waiver of liability

I hereby release, discharge, and hold harmless Mortar Board and its staff and officers and their agents and assigns and Mortar Board’s partners, sponsors, exhibitors and their officers, agents, representatives, employees and assigns from any actions, causes of action, claims or liabilities, now existing or that may arise in the future, that are in any way related to or arise out of my participation in the conference.

I understand that any costs for data, internet or other technical services that are necessary to ensure my conference participation are mine and mine alone and no reimbursement will be provided by my chapter or Mortar Board.

Photo and chat permission and recording

I grant my permission for my photograph and likeness to be used for promotional purposes of Mortar Board without any expectation of prior approval or compensation. I grant my permission for my entries in the chat features of the webinar-based conference to be displayed across Mortar Board’s constituencies. I understand that many aspects of the conference will be recorded.
