Program

Learn from fun, interactive workshops.

This virtual conference features nearly 10 intense hours of practical help, research, and advice on how to improve your Student Government and how to become more effective and influential on your campus.

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). However, if you can’t attend as a group, each person is welcome to log-in from their own computers/phones/devices, no matter where they are.

  • Review webinar log-in instructions with all participants
  • Use classrooms/meeting rooms that can broadcast the webinars on a large screen and with a good sound system
  • Choose one representative in each meeting/classroom to interact with the presenter on Zoom (to unmute you and ask questions via chat)
