Program

Learn from fun, interactive workshops.

The conference features 51 workshop sessions (7 more than 2018), 17 brand-new workshops with several led by student leaders and advisors, 9 new presenters, 37 round-table caucuses, one dozen one-hour private consulting appointments, and more than 24 information-packed hours of practical help, ideas, tips, and advice on how to improve your Student Government.

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
