Leadership Conference

The Annual Summer Leadership Conference normally takes place in New York City; however, it is being held virtually. Attendees gain a better understanding of NSNA’s mission and programs, how to run for office, start-a-chapter, and manage an association. NSNA student leaders and NSNA staff present timely topics. Participants take back ideas to their organizations to create stronger school and state chapters; and to problem solve and share ideas. Free registration for NSNA members, faculty advisors and state consultants.
