Program

Learn from fun, interactive workshops.

The conference features 32 workshop sessions, 4 roundtables, and more than 12 information-packed hours of practical help, ideas, tips, and advice on how to improve your Student Government.

This 2021 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). However, if you can’t attend as a group, each person is welcome to log-in from their own computers/phones/devices, no matter where they are.

How to Maximize Your ASGA Virtual Experience:
  • Choose sessions to attend ahead of time
  • Download handouts ahead of time for each speaker/presentation (if provided)
  • Review webinar log-in instructions with all participants
  • Use classrooms/meeting rooms that can broadcast the webinars on a large screen and with a good sound system
  • Choose one representative in each meeting/classroom to interact with the presenter on Zoom (to unmute you and ask questions via chat)
  • Sign up for a Zoom account, and have it downloaded and installed before the conference kickoff for an uninterrupted experience (https://zoom.us/)
