Dear Leaders,

Welcome to the 2018 Student Government Association Leadership Conference!  I hope you are ready to expand your horizons and learn new ways to improve your unique style of leadership.  During this conference, you will truly learn that a leader is more than a title.  Be prepared to reflect on your leadership abilities and challenge yourself to be better than ever before.  Throughout this conference, I ask you to stay engaged, keep us proactive, and help us shape the future of how you lead.  My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you.

The skills we teach you today, will pave the way for you to lead a better tomorrow.

Start Here!  Go Anywhere!
