Present a Workshop

Workshop applications for LEAD Fall are open!

The 2021 virtual LEAD Fall conference offers two format options:

  • Workshop: This 30-minute selection is most similar to the traditional in-person conference workshops. Workshop can be conducted 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.

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.

Applications are due on Sunday, September 26, 2021.
