2020 NAGPS National Conference Application
Want to host a NAGPS National Conference and become part of NAGPS history? Submit a bid to be the host institution for the 34th Annual National Conference! The NAGPS National Conference gathers graduate and professional students from across the country for the sharing of leadership techniques, best practices, advocacy goals, and successful programs and initiatives.

During the conference, the NAGPS membership decides on the Association’s legislative and advocacy platforms, and elections are held to determine the who will serve on the National Board of Directors. By hosting the conference, your institution will be the site where graduate and professional student representatives from institutions across the United States gather to decide the direction of graduate student advocacy efforts into 2021.

The 2020 National Conference will celebrate the 34th year of NAGPS being the voice for graduate and professional students on a national level. The conference ends off with a gala celebrating another successful year and highlighting the achievements of member institutions.

Host responsibilities include: liaising with the NAGPS Vice President on conference planning and execution; reserving venue spaces; coordinating food orders; securing a hotel room block contract to be approved by the NAGPS Board of Directors; preparing a budget; and working with the NAGPS Board of Directors on promotion, soliciting abstract submissions, and preparing the conference agenda. Promotion, content, registration, and agenda items are determined by the Board with consultation of the Conference Director and host institution conference committee.

The amount of networking, leadership development, and good times brought by NAGPS events serve as a great experience for attendees, and the host institution by working with the NAGPS to put on such an important event.
