Supervision
Adult leaders and conductors will oversee students during all rehearsals, convention events, social events, concerts, and prepaid meals. Various Union Schools Fine Arts faculty members will be attending the OkMEA convention throughout the day on Thursday and Friday, will host students for Friday at dinner & Saturday at lunch.

Miscellaneous Information
- Registration is held downstairs in the PAC in the Norman rehearsal hall. 
- Once received, you must wear the lanyard at all times. It's the only way for you to be identified as an OkMEA student and to ride the shuttle bus to/from the convention center. 
- If going/coming to various sites on the bus, we encourage being on the shuttle at least 1 hour before each rehearsal starts. Rehearsals will not start late due to transportation logistics. 
- Due to scheduling circumstances, limited rehearsal time is limited, reduced greatly from the originally scheduled rehearsals, so it is of the upmost importance that you arrive at rehearsals prepared.

General Expectations
We are so proud of your accomplishments and know that you will responsibly represent Union with class this week. Please refer to the OkMEA Code of Conduct for additional information. Infractions of expected behavior will result in unpleasant consequences (we know this will not be a problem!)
