Training Offered for Incoming Student Organization Leaders

The Student Government Association and the Office of Student Activities are sponsoring a conference titled GOAL (Growing an Organization's Active Leadership) April 10 from 8:30 am to noon at the LBT Cultural Center, 5 Faculty Lane. The conference aims to assist in the transition process of newly elected student leaders, and will feature training for new leaders and advice from outgoing leaders to the newcomers. All student organizations--whether or not funded by SGA--are encouraged to attend GOAL. Student organizations are encouraged to hold elections soon, because the success of this conference will depend on having newly elected officers before this date.
