About the Conference

At the 2018 New Orleans Student Government Training Conference, you’ll improve your SG and network with peers while experiencing all the sights, sounds, and flavors of the Big Easy.

You’ll be in New Orleans during Mardi Gras! After the ASGA conference, head to the French Quarter for a beignet and cafe au lait at the Cafe Du Monde, watch a parade, try on elaborate Carnival masks at a local shop, or tour the Garden District from aboard a St. Charles line streetcar. Sit down to a gourmet meal at one of the city’s many fine-dining restaurants, or have a po’ boy while enjoying live jazz in a Bourbon Street club.

Book your hotel rooms early, as they will be in short supply because of the Mardi Gras in New Orleans the same weekend. ASGA has a block of rooms, but once they’re sold out, there may be few rooms in the New Orleans area available!
