Networking Opportunities

     Students have additional opportunities to get involved in NASSM through the annual conference.

Students gain additional exposure through academic presentations. Conference presentations provide opportunities for you to share your work with others with similar research interests and to practice your presentation skills.

If you have any questions about the conference, please don’t hesitate to contact any member of our current Student Board.
