Attend Pre-Conference Orientation - Accepted Enterprise Conference students and their parent or guardian MUST ATTEND one of the two Conference Orientation Sessions usually held after work in the early evening. This is your opportunity to meet the Discussion Group Leaders or “DG”, other accepted students and Conference Committee leaders, as well as have questions answered.

Attendance - Conference students are expected to attend all scheduled sessions of the Conference with their team. Being on time and prepared to participate with your peers is a sign of respect for the team, the Conference Discussion Group Leader, and the Rotary volunteers. A student may NOT leave the Conference early. Students can be picked up from the Gunderson High School at approximately 7:00 pm on Friday.

Closed Conference Campus - Once signed in at the Conference, a student may not leave unless picked up by a parent/guardian with appropriate identification and with approval/sign out by the Conference Chair.

Rotary Transportation - All Conference students, once signed into the Conference, must use Rotary-provided transportation to and from the venue.

Notification of Special Needs/Meals - Physical limitations requiring special accommodation or special medical dietary needs should be included in your application in order that Rotary might inquire into the necessary accommodations at the venue. All meals have a standard vegetarian plate.

ELC Building Your BusinessMedications, Alcohol, Weapon Policy - Any medication, whether prescribed or “over-the-counter/retail” must be fully identified on its container. The student must inform the Discussion Group Leader (DG) of the need to take medicine. Students may not have in their possession or in their rooms any unapproved medicine or alcohol/wine/beer or other controlled items, or weapon. A student confronted by another student with any of these items or any other dangerous practice, is required to seek out adult help (usually their DG) and distancing him/herself from the situation.

Participation and Conduct - The end of each Conference day may vary, but “lights out” and sleep time are strictly supervised and enforced. Any Conference participant disturbing the group or other venue guests (the public) will be subject to disciplinary action and may include having parents pick them up immediately.  Conference participants are expected to conduct themselves at the Conference so as to bring credit to themselves, their school, their parents and Rotary.

Violation of these rules at any time, day or night will result in termination of participation in the Conference activities.
