Conference Guidelines for Delegates

The Foundation covers economy class direct travel expenses to and from Delegates' home location to the conference site, as well as lodging expenses and official travel during the conference. Incidental and/or personal charges (e.g., telephone calls, laundry, etc.) during the Program are to be paid by the Delegates. Detailed guidelines for Japan 2017 will be presented to Delegates in the months leading up to the conference.

Delegates are expected to attend all official USJLP events throughout the course of the week. Unexplained absences from any sessions and/or activities could result in the loss of membership in the USJLP.

As the purpose of the conference is to have Delegates spend as much time getting to know one another as possible, Delegates are asked to come unaccompanied by their spouse, partner, and/or children. Family members are encouraged to join the group (at their own expense) during the last two days of the conference when Scott M. Johnson Fellows will also be invited to join the group.

All meetings will be conducted in English. Delegates may be asked to make a presentation and/or moderate a session during the week.

Membership in the USJLP is a lifetime commitment. Delegates and Fellows are encouraged to remain active by attending and organizing USJLP events, to stay connected via an email mailing list, and to inform their secretariats of important news, updates and changes in contact information. Fellows are also encouraged to help in discovering new young leaders and to contribute to securing the financial future of the Program.
