Student Board Development Conference 2023 

Optimize, FPSA's annual Student Board Development Conference, aims to empower chapter leaders and their officer teams. This highly encouraged event offers students a valuable opportunity to strengthen essential skills like teamwork, communication, planning, organization, management, and adaptability.

The conference's main goal is to equip students with the tools and knowledge needed to foster effective collaboration within their chapters. Through participation in Optimize, students will gain valuable insights and strategies, enabling them to plan events and work-based learning experiences that align with FPSA's core elements.

We cordially invite advisors to join us at the Chapter Excellence Institute, held concurrently with Optimize, FPSA's annual Student Board Development Conference. As students engage in learning about their roles in chapter operations, advisors will have the invaluable opportunity to collaborate with FPSA facilitators in developing a diverse toolbox of resources specifically tailored for their chapters and classrooms.

The registration cost does not include the cost of the hotel.  The hotel is $75 for the one night.  You must complete the rooming list and send it to Jamie Cooper at the Avanti. 

Please contact the state director for any questions.
