Conformation Event Kit

Links to documents and forms needed to administer Conformation events are listed below. A club must have multiple blank copies of most of the forms available, so it is suggested that clubs print the forms prior to the event or have access to the forms and a printer available at the event. Some completed forms require multiple copies to be distributed. Clubs must be prepared to use mobile technology (Ex: Use a cell phone to capture a document and generate a PDF), a copier, or create multiple hand-written copies to meet the requirement to distribute multiple copies of a form.


Multiple blank printed copies of each form must be available at each event and the club must be prepared to create multiple copies of a completed form.

Reference Documents

These documents must be available for reference at an event. It is recommended that PDFs be downloaded to a device so that there is not a dependence on an internet connection.
