Student leadership conference
Memorial held its student leadership conference earlier this month on the St. John's campus. This year's theme was: Leader Forum 2009: Take Action. Delegates participated in sessions focused on leadership development and the community – from teambuilding, to ethics, to practical presentation skills, to women in leadership. This year's keynote speaker was Mike Nordby, head of the Global Youth Mentor organization, who spent 21 days before Christmas as a homeless person on the streets of Winnipeg. Also, Dr. Michael Temelini of the Political Science department examined the art of communicating. Leader Forum 2009 is a program of Student Affairs and Services.
