Welcome to the Clubs & Organizations - Annual Recognition Conference pages of the Matador Involvement Center website! This page is designed for those of you who have never attended the Annual Recognition Conference and would like to know more about it.
The Annual Recognition Conference is a mandatory annual event for all University Recognized and Associated Students chartered clubs and organizations at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). Although it is open to general members of the clubs and organizations, at least one officer from each recognized club or organization must attend the entire conference (president and/or treasurer strongly encouraged). Attendance of the entire program re-registers your club or organization for the 2013-2014 academic year.
No two conferences are the same. While you may hear from others what the previous years' programs consisted of, you will be pleasantly surprised to find how it has evolved over the years. This year's conference will highlight some new and exciting workshops and presentations!
As you read above, 'at least one officer from each recognized club or organization must attend'. We recommend you bring along two (2) officers from your organization. You will be able to explore your workshop options together and come together following the conference to "share notes". The conference is free and includes lunch for 2 representatives from each organization. We are anticipating attendance to reach capacity. Therefore, groups interested in sending additional members should contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registration of any additional members or officers.
Register for the conference. The earlier the better! The only way to register is online. Call the Matador Involvement Center if you are having trouble with the registration form. You can also register on the day of the conference, but you will miss out on critical information sent to those who register in advance.
The MIC website and conference pages will lead you to the information you need. If you need more help, e-mail email@example.com or call Augie Garibay at (818) 677-5111 for more information.
Student leaders who have registered for the conference will receive a confirmation with additional details regarding the program. Your registration includes all the events throughout the day, including a continental breakfast, welcome remarks, presentations, lunch, workshops, and a vendor fair. Seating space is limited at popular workshops, so you are advised to be seated promptly at the sessions of your choice.
Immediately following the Welcome Remarks a staff member from the MIC will engage in a conversation about the University Recognition process and important updates that impact all student clubs and organizations.
60-minute presentations developed from feedback collected from past and present student leaders. These workshops are designed to actively engage participants in subjects pertinent to your role as a student leader.
In addition to a healthy meal, we have coordinated a group of local vendors to meet and greet with you in the OST Lawn (North of the USU). These exhibitors will provide information beneficial to your student clubs and organizations.
Student clubs and organizations that fail to attend the mandatory Annual Recognition Conference will lose all privileges associated with being a University Recognized and Associated Students chartered club or organization. Loss of privileges includes:
