Now accepting applications for AL1GN 2023! Apply to host AL1GN’s annual national conference at your school. Applications are due August 1 at 11:59 pm. Apply here.
How It Works
Student organizers plan and host all aspects of the national conference at their undergraduate institution. The planning process begins in the summer and continues until the conference in the spring. Organizers rely on the support of faculty/staff/administrative coordinators and the AL1GN National Team, but retain full capacity to create unique and novel programming each year.
The student co-chairs of the conference team are responsible for leading a team of undergraduate students comprised of committees and committee chairs for programming, operations (food, housing, space, volunteer recruitment), finance (fundraising and cost-saving), and marketing. Co-chairs are also responsible for ensuring that the work done by these committees fit within the constraints of the host institution. This may mean meeting with administrators alongside operations committee members to secure space or finance committee members to secure a donation from a specific school within the university.
Please note that each school can only submit one application, so please be in consultation with the FGLI community on your campus about which two students will be applying on behalf of your school. Taking on the responsibility as conference co-chair is an incredibly demanding time commitment and should not be taken lightly. If you already have multiple prior commitments for next year (academic, social, or otherwise), please strongly consider this before applying for the position. We encourage you to reach out to us for all questions and concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
