This national leadership conference is designed specifically for committed student leaders and their advisors from two and four-year colleges and universities. This is a working conference stressing group discussions, a sharing of information, and facilitators with solutions to concerns. We have years of experience in student leadership training and student government advising. Dr. Pat J. Bosco, along with a staff of committed faculty members from around the United States, works hands-on with the conference program, ensuring the conference reflects current trends and provides newcomers and returning delegates with opportunities to make a difference on your campus this year. We look forward to joining us on October 15 – 17, 2021!


For registrations with payment received prior to July 1, 2021, we will be reducing the registration fee to $299 per delegate.  After July 1, the registration fee will be $350 per delegate.

Registration fees include all keynotes, breakout sessions, roundtables, panel discussions, materials, and handouts. Here is a link to the tentative conference schedule.

We are also offering a team-building experience on Thursday, Oct 14 from 2 to 5 pm CT as a pre-conference activity.  This workshop is designed specifically for at least 5 student government leaders from the same school, who are interested in improving communication, developing goals for this term and improving trust.  The cost is $100 per student; advisers may participant at no charge.
