Every year, our conferences provide student trustees the opportunity to develop their skills as leaders and advocates. At these conferences, attendees engage in workshops, keynotes from partners and stakeholders, and meet other students from across the province. These events provide a unique, student-centric environment where student trustees are set up for success in their terms and beyond.
