Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

1. How is my attendance tracked?

There will be a sign-in sheet available during the first 10min of the presentation. Students are responsible for signing into the session in order to receive credit for attending. Students that arrive after the attendance sheet has already been collected will not receive credit. Students are tracked by their name, college, campus name, advisor name, and date sessions were completed. Students are responsible for writing legibly on the attendance sheets to ensure all information is accurate

2. Can I complete FLT during one conference?

FLT cannot typically be completed during one conference. All 6 classes and Capstone might not be available during the same conference due to scheduling and availability of presenters. Most students complete FLT while attending 2 or more FCSSGA conferences.
