What are LEAD Conferences?
Leadership Experience and Development (LEAD) Conferences offer experiential leadership skills development to students and advisers of the National Honor Society, the National Junior Honor Society, and the National Association of Student Councils.

At LEAD, students and advisers sharpen their leadership skills to improve their school culture and community while networking with their peers from around the country.
