Each year, the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) hosts the well-anticipated StudentCPT Leadership Conference (SLC). Although the conference was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, the CPT still wanted to create an opportunity for student leaders to connect and build upon their leadership skills.
The Lead with Integrity Leadership Series was designed for students to fine tune their strengths, enhance their ethical decision-making abilities, and learn best practices as it relates to running a StudentCPT chapter. Students joined the conference via Zoom for a two-hour session throughout the course of a three-day period. Because of the virtual nature of the conference, students were able to have open dialogue with the speakers.
