Student leadership conference Sept. 15
Georgia Southern University’s Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement will host the ‘Leadership Prime Time: What’s Your Focus Leadership Conference” Saturday, Sept. 15, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Russell Union. Check-in begins at 8 a.m. outside the Russell Union Theater.
‘The student planning committee came up with this year’s theme. They want to help students find their focus whether it be a specific organization, improving their leadership skills or meeting other students to network and build collaboration,” said Jodi Middleton, leadership coordinator in the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement.
The conference is geared to students of all levels who are interested in leadership. Participants may choose from sessions on balancing life and leadership, marketing leadership skills, effective communication for conflict resolution, teambuilding, and more.
‘The sessions are designed around the social change model for leadership development. They will focus on the students as individual leaders and group leadership,” Middleton added. ‘Students will learn what they can do and their potential to change society, whether that society is Georgia Southern, their hometown, the world or wherever they go.”
The keynote speaker is Dan Czech, associate professor, graduate program director and sport psychology coordinator in the Department of Health and Kinesiology at Georgia Southern. ‘Dr. Czech will speak about not having fear when it comes to achieving success,” Middleton said.
Registration fees are $10 for Georgia Southern students and $20 for non-Georgia Southern students. The cost includes a continental breakfast, lunch and the day of training sessions. To register, visit http://students.georgiasouthern.edu/leadership/savethedate.php.
