Present a Workshop

Apply today to present a workshop at LEAD Winter!

LEAD Winter, on February 26–27, 2021, will be a virtual event where students and advisers from around the country can connect with each other and hone their leadership skills.

This year’s virtual format offers the chance to reach an even wider audience, and being a presenter is a surefire way to put your ideas and expertise in the spotlight. Both students and advisers are encouraged to apply to present and may choose from two formats:

  • Workshop: This 30-minute selection is most similar to the traditional in-person conference workshops. You can conduct your workshop either live or prerecorded.
  • Meet the Pros: What makes you a “pro”? Is it a project you executed seamlessly? An organizational technique that makes your meetings run smoothly? Share your tips in this LIVE abbreviated format—15 minutes plus a five-minute Q&A session.

Take the (virtual) stage and submit your application by January 15!


Please note: Students under the age of 13 may not submit their own presenter application. If you are under 13, please coordinate with your chapter or council adviser to submit the application on your behalf. By initiating a workshop submission, applicants indicate that they are at least 13 years of age and able to submit their own applications to the LEAD Conference.
