You See Leaders: Call for Programs Information


The "You See Leaders" Conference is currently accepting program proposals for the 2012 conference. This conference will be held on Saturday, September 29th from 8:30am to 4pm in the UC Merced Classroom & Office Building.


Conference Audience: We are expecting to welcome approximately 300 local high school students who are involved in school leadership programs.


Session Information: Each session will be 45 minutes long with 10 minute breaks in between sessions. There will be 3 workshop sessions, an interactive team building session, and opening & closing keynotes. This year we ask presenters to please present at least twice due to last year's feedback. We want presenters to present multiple times  to allow more students to take part in your program. Please indicate which sessions you wish to present on the form under "Session Selection."


Current Students and Alumni ONLY: We would be happy to have you present a program. If you wish to present a program by yourself as a student or alumni we ask to have a copy of your presentation ( i.e. powerpoint, paper handout, or any other format) and an outline of your presentation a couple weeks before the conference; this is to ensure we have professional presentations. Once this form has been submitted you will receive an email  with a date to submit these documents. Thank you for your understanding.


Current Schedule (subject to change):
