Boston NCSL Leadership Conference

The NCSL Leadership Conference was held in Boston from April 4-7. Four hundred participants were in attendance from schools as far as Guam! Here’s a look at what one UMW student thought of it:

“The 2013 NCSL leadership conference in Boston was amazing! I learned practical leadership skills to implement in my own life and I learned how to succeed after college. Not only did I gain advice to grow as a leader but I was able to network with some of the top leaders in the country in various fields. I loved how the keynote speakers were present to talk to us after their speeches. The workshops have completely changed the way I see challenges and how I approach goals. Through my interactions with a couple of the keynote presenters I have made some valuable connections to help me throughout college and with life after graduation. One of the big takeaways I got out of the conference is always put yourself outside of your comfort zone in order to achieve success.”
