USU Leadership Conference

Calling all Student Government Leaders

USULC is a great opportunity for high school student government groups to fine-tune leadership skills and get fired up for the upcoming school year. The conference is also a great chance for students to build positive relationships with other student leaders from surrounding areas. This three-day event is packed with great speakers, fun activities, plenty of food, and our famous Aggie Ice Cream!

In addition to the registration payment, we also require a $200 security deposit. The security deposit is due March 15 and the final headcount is due May 13. This deposit will hold space for your school at the conference and cover any lost housing keys, lock-outs, parking passes, damaged furniture, etc. After assessing damages/losses incurred by your group, the remaining balance of the $200 deposit will be returned six weeks after the conference ends. The headcount given May 15 will be final and will be what the school is invoiced for.

Each group attending USULC must have an advisor at the conference with them at all times. If the student government advisor is not available the week of the conference, an alternate advisor is welcome and required to attend. There is no cost for advisor(s) in attendance.

Our conference concept invites advisors to be here to spend quality time with their students and have quality planning time for the new school year. A daily advisor meeting will occur over breakfast to be sure that you have a good idea of what each day will entail.

Advisors are in charge of keeping track of their students (remain on time, make the most of planning and processing time, enforce curfew, enforcing the code of conduct, etc.).
Students will be staying in on-campus housing. Housing materials and keys will be given at conference check-in and required to be returned at conference check-out. We will be making the room assignments based on the registration information submitted online by May 13. Students will be sharing a room/suite with others from their same school wherever possible. Advisors will be in the same building as their students, but not in the same room/suite.
All participants will provide their own transportation to and from the USU campus. Parking details, whether you have cars or a bus, will be provided in the registration confirmation email. Once you arrive at the conference, we will have our own busses for your trips on and off-campus (USU Ropes Course and other activities).

If you have any questions about USULC or for more information about this event, please contact Lauralee Lyons at lauralee.lyons@usu.edu or 435-797-2920.
