What Will I Learn?

You will get so many new ideas, solutions to problems, and tips.

When your delegation leaves the ASGA New Orleans conference, you’ll be taking away specific ideas and “best practices” which will quickly and dramatically improve your Student Government. We’ll help you develop plans to tackle both pressing issues and long-term projects. You’ll also head home knowing how to build a more cohesive team: one that’s prepared to handle new challenges head-on and more efficiently.
