The strength of NeW is found in its chapters and leadership, which is YOU! The NeW Leadership Retreat focuses on building community among student leadership from chapters all over the country, so we can learn from each other, share ideas, and build lifelong friendships. Hear from sensational speakers on how to better articulate conservative principles on campus. Learn how to recruit new members, engage existing members, and grow your chapter into a positive community for women. We will also have fun on team building excursions. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make new friendships, grow in your personal and professional development, and discover how to strengthen and grow your campus chapter.
This year we’re heading to Chattanooga, TN. We found a great location downtown within walking distance to shopping, the water front, the aquarium, and fun coffeeshops and restaurants. The Retreat will be Friday, August 6 through Sunday, August 8 at the Holiday Inn and Suites Chattanooga Downtown.
We are putting together a packed, useful, fun, and inspiring program and want all of you to leave more equipped and inspired to start next school year stronger and ready for success! We will have practical workshops covering everything from recruitment to tabling to hosting dynamic events. Plus, professional development sessions and breakouts on topics from writing to media to grad school to resume writing (pick your interest!).
All chapter leaders are invited to attend, but NeW will only be providing scholarships for NeW National Members. If you are not a NeW National member already, you can sign up for $5 for the year here. Scholarships to the Retreat will include some travel costs, hotel accommodations, meals, and activities for the weekend. All attendees will also receive a swag bag with lots of great materials you can use for your chapter during the school year.
In order to accommodate the attendance of all of our chapters, this year we are limiting the number of chapter representatives to two leaders from each. Additional students may also apply and be placed on a wait list. Wait listed applicants will be considered as space allows, but are not guaranteed a spot. More information on this will be released in the coming months. If you chapter cannot meet this requirement, email Madison or Haley immediately to discuss.
