Testimonials

The [SGA] executive board this year has been fantastic, to the point where the president has said she hasn’t seen such activeness in decades. I think your conference had a lot to do that. I’ve made my job so much harder but I’ve never felt prouder of anything in my life. Thank you so much for giving me the guidance and motivation to get here, and to do better next year. Your conference is unlike any other I’ve been to. Please keep doing what you’re doing.

“The 40th National Student Government Association Conference allowed me to attend relevant sessions, which gave me ideas to bring back to my home. The presenters learn your name and are able to personally interact with you. It allows you to feel in a safe space to ask any question on your mind. This experience was one of the best I’ve ever had in my 20 years of life.”

“By far the best conference I have ever attended! Everyone was attentive and ready to address any possible issue or concern student government representatives may be facing. Not only was it a valuable and beneficial experience, but they provided fun activities to unwind in the evenings. They went above and beyond. They didn’t just provide workshops, but every member was inclusive and by the end became a diverse and accepting family!”

“I found many of the sessions that I was able to attend very helpful to me as an individual and also a team member. Many of which included helpful tips on things such as leadership skills, how to have a courageous conversation, the best way to speak to people with power and many more. What I loved most about the conference was the sense of unity that was felt in certain sessions where we would interact with the speakers and the rest of the students attending.”
