The National Collegiate Leadership Conference is a non-profit, student run organization at The University of Arizona that brings together students and leaders from diverse backgrounds to learn leadership skills, cultivate social responsibility, break down barriers, and to adopt leadership as a way of life. While each teams individual responsibilities include collaborating on projects and planning for the Conference, the nature of their day to day work may differ. Some examples include:
-Programming: selecting motivational/opening keynote and closing speakers, approving workshop proposals, organizing rooms for presentations, etc.
-Marketing: creative marketing plans for mailings, registration, and volunteer recruitment, updating Website content, social media outreach, designing advertisements, etc.
The Planning Committee is a year-long commitment to plan, organize, develop, and execute the Conference which is held every February at the University of Arizona. This unique experience allows for students to work together to plan all aspects of a large scale professional leadership conference, including but not limited to: strategic planning, marketing/outreach, call for programs selection (workshops, community service projects, opening/keynote speakers), catering, fundraising, and evaluation/assessment.
