Registration Agreement

NHCSL is offering Hispanic Legislators a flat scholarship to attend this meeting. To qualify for the scholarship I understand that I must be a member in good standing (if not please enclose a $100.00 check for annual membership dues). In requesting and accepting NHCSL's scholarship not to exceed $1,200 (includes round trip air, 3 night's hotel stay and meals), I commit to fully participate at NHCSL's 15th National Summit to be held on February 22th – 25th , 2018 in Chicago. Moreover, if I accept to participate and do not attend the meeting activities, NHCSL will require full reimbursement from my state or myself for all expenses incurred. Please note, this may also affect future NHCSL scholarships. Therefore, I am providing my credit card information, which I acknowledge will be automatically charged should I not comply with this agreement.

I have read and agree to the above terms & conditions

Moreover, if I have a guest accompanying me to any or all NHCSL Summit events, I must purchase a guest registration for the respective fee shown below.
