State Convention

State convention is a two-day conference hosted each year in downtown Indianapolis. Delegates can attend leadership workshops presented by fellow students, hear national caliber inspirational and motivational speakers, network with students and adults in their district and the state, and receive information and tools that will strengthen them as leaders, as well as their councils. Schools that have a virtual membership will have the ability to still hear from the national caliber speakers and participate in elements of the big group workshops.

Each school can bring an unlimited number of student and adviser delegates. Some of these student delegates may be workshop presenters, helping deliver the leadership curriculum of this event.
