National Student Council Conference

MASC Delegation to the NatStuCo Conference: June 22-27, 2019

REGISTRATION FOR THE MARYLAND DELEGATION IS NOW FULL – THERE IS NO MORE ROOM FOR ANY STUDENT OR ADVISOR.  IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS – PLEASE EMAIL KAREN.CRAWFORD@MDSTUDENTCOUNCILS.ORG

The annual National Student Council 2019 Conference is a unique opportunity for student council members and advisers from across the country to sharpen their leadership skills and build their peer networks.

This year’s theme, Forging Student Leaders, is designed to light the fire within students, advisers, and administrators as they connect with their peers and discover new ways to enhance their leadership abilities.

The 2019 National Student Council Conference will be hosted by South Fayette High School in McDonald, PA, June 24–26 where middle level and high school student leaders and advisers from across the country will convene for this motivational three-day event.  The MASC delegation will join with Delaware on the bus trip to PA on Saturday, June 22, and travel home on June 27th.

National Student Council’s (NSC) national and regional leadership conferences and programs feature nationally recognized speakers; engaging, high-energy sessions; and fun, hands-on training for both students and advisers.  Held throughout the year, NASC conferences and programs provide student leaders and advisers with the opportunity to meet face-to-face to share ideas and experiences and network with peers from across the country. Many conferences also feature valuable professional development credit hours for advisors.

Action required on or before April 20th (postmark deadline to NSC for registration)

Advisors:  There is a 1/2 price advisor registration rate until the end of February 2019.  Register (NatStuCo registration website) using the MASC group code “829” then use the discount code of “19FEB” to get the 1/2 price advisor registration rate.  (You may also need the “MDSD19” code somewhere in the registration process.)  Advisor registration questions – contact info@NatStuCoconference.org or 1-800-253-7746, opt. 8.
