FINAL DRAFT - EVENTS TSA STATE 2019

TSA Students and Parents:

New this year is a limitation on parents attending the conference. Because the conference has grown to its largest size ever, TSA has had to put out the following notice:

Parent/Guardian Conference Attendance

Colorado TSA understands the importance and value of parents/guardians to our members and appreciates their encouragement, enthusiasm and support. However, with the growth Colorado TSA has experienced, there is no longer any capacity or facilities to accommodate those parents/family members of student attendees who come to the state conference as observers. For the safety of our students, volunteers, COTSA staff and hotel staff, access to all TSA events is restricted to officially registered and badged conference participants ONLY. Any individual who is not an officially registered participant of the conference WILL NOT be admitted to any TSA event at the conference hotel (see the section on registration). COTSA staff understand that families do come to pick up students after the awards ceremonies to help chapters save money on transportation costs, and that is acceptable. However, unless they are registered participants of the conference, parents and family members may not attend the awards ceremonies, nor can they wait for students in the lobby, restaurant or atrium areas of the hotel. Instead, they must wait outside the hotel in the hotel parking lot in designated parking spaces. They cannot wait in the hotel loading zones or fire lanes. COTSA staff regrets these measures, but Colorado TSA members are guests of the Marriott and Hyatt and need to be respectful of their facilities and their other guests, as well as comply with local fire codes and laws.
