    Conference Registration

    Registration for the 2018 Student Group Leadership Conference on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 is now open! The conference is required for all presidents, vice presidents, treasurers, secretaries, public relations directors and new member educators of all non-funded, funded, governmental and Greek letter organizations. Student group leaders were only required to attend one day of the conference (or the equivalent number of student group workshops throughout multiple days).

     


    Student Group Training Requirement

    To fulfill the 2018-2019 student group training requirement, each student group executive board member must obtain seven (7) workshop credits with the following breakdown:

    • 3 Organizational Development Workshop Credits
    • 2 Group Fundamentals Workshop Credits
    • 1 Leader Development Workshop Credit
    • 1 Elective Workshop Credit (Any Workshop Category)

    Group Fundamentals

    Group fundamental workshops are designed to provide essential and technical information related to running a recognized Kean University student group or organization or hosting a student group activity or event.

    Organizational Development

    Organizational development workshops are designed to develop and enhance the functioning of the student group as a team or their events, activities and programs.

    Leader Development

    Leader development workshops are designed to develop and enhance a student’s leadership abilities or promote personal wellness.

    Professional Development

    Professional development workshops are designed to provide the student leader with information that will help the student articulate the experiences gained through their various student leadership roles or help develop the leader’s skills and abilities for the professional/career world.

    Elective Workshop

    Fulfillment of this item is met when a student attends any group fundamentals, professional development, leader development, or organizational development workshop outside of the workshop category requirements.
