What is Courtesy Corps?

Courtesy Corps is a program offered to BPA members during the day of competition at State Leadership Conference. Members are able to assist event directors, judges, and BMITE staff in a volunteer capacity.

This year we have re-imagined Courtesy Corps for those members who wish to help serve Oklahoma BPA on March 9th.

2021 Courtesy Corps members will serve as social media promoters on March 9th. Courtesy Corps members will have access to official Oklahoma BPA social media posts and will post promotional content on their personal social media accounts following the marketing schedule. Courtesy Corps members will also serve as the official photographers for SLC 2021, by taking photos of their chapters or collecting photos of their chapter participants and submitting them to Oklahoma BPA and/or posting photos online and tagging Oklahoma BPA. More information and links will be sent to Courtesy Corps participants and their local advisor. 

Each chapter is allowed a maximum of 2 Courtesy Corps members, spots are limited to 100 members and will be given to those who sign up first.

Please note that signing up to be part of Courtesy Corps is a commitment at SLC – all Courtesy Corps volunteers are expected to arrive to their assignment on time and work for the amount of time specified. Failure to complete assignments on time and in full could result in the chapter being disallowed from being in Courtesy Corps the following SLC.

How Do I Sign Up?

Sign up for a Courtesy Corps spot (first come, first serve – spots are limited) in the registration system when you sign up for competitions. You must be a registered BPA member who is registered to attend SLC to participate in Courtesy Corps.

How do I get my assignment?

Oklahoma BPA State Advisor, Paxton Cavin, will email Courtesy Corps members and local advisors prior to SLC.

What if I can’t arrive on time or fulfill my assignment?

Local advisors should notify  Paxton Cavin at paxton.cavin@careertech.ok.gov if a student is unable to participate.
