“I really enjoyed the conference and learning so much about each presenter. They are warm, talented, and motivating individuals!”

“Best conference I have attended so far. Thank you!!”

“This was such a good experience. I felt so welcome and all the sessions and networking were very beneficial.”

The Future Leaders Program, taught by SNA Past Presidents, provides hands-on training to emerging leaders of SNA.

Participants will network with SNA members and leaders from across the country and hone their leadership and communication skills in a fun, interactive environment. Participants will also use the Gallup StrengthsFinder exercise to identify and learn how to utilize their own unique set of leadership strengths.
