What's Going On This Year?
We're going to have multiple concurrent sessions during the conference! Wow! You'll be able to attend the talk that is most relevant to you – and if you bring other group members, you can all see different talks! But if you miss one, no worries – you can find them all on our YouTube channel.
Speaking of bringing group members, we're bringing back the popular the group registration! It's only $145 to register a group of five students or advisors from the same SSA affiliate group. That's over $70 in savings on the conference registration cost!
Is your group's advisor über-involved? Great - bring them along! You can bring your advisor as part of the group registration rate. There's also an advisor registration rate if they register individually. And based on the success of last year's Advisor Track, we'll be repeating it this year: each conference has a full afternoon of advice, training and peer networking on the best ways to advise an SSA affiliate group. Be sure to let your group's advisor know!
As always, we strive to hold the largest, best secular student leadership event in the nation. We keep costs low, and pull out all the stops to put on a high-quality event that will inspire you for years to come. Check out the page for each conference location for more details about that event's housing, travel, speakers, and more. And if you have questions, just contact us!
