Program

Learn from fun, interactive workshops.

This one-day conference features nearly 10 intense hours of practical, help, research, and advice on how to improve your Student Government, how to become a more effective and influential officer and leader on your campus, and how to make your SG the best-ever in the history of your school this year.

This 2020 conference will be available ONLINE only.

Ideally, your SG officers, members, and advisors will attend in person on your campus together (using your institution’s required safety protocols):

  • Choose sessions to attend and use classrooms/meeting rooms that can broadcast the Webinars on a large screen and with a good sound system
  • Choose one representative in each room to interact with the speaker on Zoom (to unmute you and ask questions via chat)
  • Choose ahead of time which workshops each advisor will attend
  • Download handouts for each speaker/presentation
