Summer Workshop

AASC LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP INFORMATION
JULY 18-21, 2006
HENDERSON STATE UNIVERSITY
ARKADELPHIA
 
WORKSHOP GOALS:  Group sessions will be used to facilitate learning of team building, problem solving, and meeting skills.  Activities will focus on teaching students how to plan successful projects and will enable them to maximize their potential for personal growth.  Strong friendships will be developed, and adults working with students will improve their ability to teach leadership skills.
 
WHERE AND WHEN:  This workshop will utilize Henderson State University's conference facilities, dorms, and cafeteria.  All delegate expenses for the week are covered in the registration fee.  Students are expected to stay on campus and follow the daily instructional schedule.  An adult representing each school delegation is required to be on campus each night, in the dorm, and to attend the first general session.  The workshop runs from Tuesday through noon on Friday.  Dorm check-in begins at 12:30 pm on Tuesday with Registration from 1:00 to 2:00 pm.  The opening session will begin at 2:00 pm.  Students are scheduled with activities until noon on Friday.
 
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:  The student program will include large groups, where all students are together, and small groups where students are in groups of approximately twenty.  Students will remain with the same small group during the week and use group council to develop skills and to practice skills learned during the week.  An advisor group will be available for adults.  This program will be of special value to new advisors desiring to learn from other advisors in a collaborative setting.  The Workshop Director will be the coordinator between the AASC and the university and will also direct staff composed of advisors and junior counselors who will work with student groups.  These staff positions are filled on a voluntary basis.  Any adult with an interest in working with a small group should mark this on your registration form.
 
WHO MAY ATTEND:  Summer workshop is for students of AASC member schools.  A member school may bring 10 students and either one or two advisors.  To attend, students must be eligible for the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades for the fall semester.  The students should be involved in student council as an officer or as a council representative.
 
WHO MUST ATTEND:  Each school delegation must be accompanied by an adult advisor who is a registered delegate and who will stay in the dorm each night during the entire workshop.  The student's school advisor may request another school sponsor to be responsible for his/her delegates.  It is the sponsor's responsibility to have the substituting sponsor sign for his/her students and talk with the home school administration concerning liability.
 
WHAT TO BRING:  All delegates must bring dorm supplies such as clock, blanket, sheets, pillow, wash cloth, towels, bath soap, shampoo, etc.  Clothing can be regular school clothing.  No formal clothes will be needed.  Students are requested not to bring large amounts of cash.  Money will be needed for dorm snacks and bookstore purchases.
 
WORKSHOP COSTS:  The registration fee is $140 per person for member schools and $150 per person for nonmember schools.  Late registration (postmarked after June 16) will be $160 per person.  No school may register after July 1.  The attending adult is considered a delegate and pays the same registration fee as a student.
 
SUBSTITUTIONS AND REFUNDS:  Delegate substitutions will be allowed.  All substitutions should be done in writing for accuracy.  Please send both the name of the student being replaced and the name, address, and phone number of the new student to the Workshop Director.  Delegate refunds up to $100 will be made for delegates not attending provided the Workshop Director is notified in writing with a postmark date no later than July 1.  After that date, no refunds will be given.
 
FOLLOWING WORKSHOP RULES:  A minimum number of rules are specified at workshop because of the high quality of participants.  Student leaders do have one trait in common that sometimes creates problems.  Leaders tend to want to be involved in many things and have difficulty discarding extra options.  Because of the liability involved, student delegates must stay on the workshop campus rather than leave to participate activities and return.  Please do not bring students who have other obligations for the week.  Any student leaving campus for non-emergency reasons will be referred to the workshop committee for review.
