NMASC 2017 Summer Workshop
Major League Leadership

June 6-9, 2017
New Mexico Tech in Socorro

The NMASC Summer Leadership Workshop is an outstanding annual leadership training and development workshop for middle level and high school students and advisors! Make friends while working, learning and experiencing leadership activities in an energized, safe environment—all in four days! There is no limit to the number of students who may attend from a school; you are encouraged to bring as many as you wish for this early summer training experience. 

Dorms will be assigned by the school's completed registration received, SO REGISTER EARLY! Delegates will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students going into 9th grade will be considered high school students, even though they may have been registered by their mid-level school. Middle Level students attending Summer Workshop must have completed 6th grade and must be a member in good standing in their school's Student Council. At least one advisor per 15 students must register with and remain on campus for the workshop.

When YOU leave the workshop, you will be:

  • Energized!
  • Prepared with leadership skills!
  • Ready to begin a new school year with enthusiasm!
The 2017 Summer Workshop will welcome special guest A'ric Jackson back to New Mexico to share his leadership expertise, humor and inspiration with Workshop participants.

The 2017 NMASC Summer Workshop will be held June 6-9 at New Mexico Tech in Socorro, NM. The approximate cost is $275/student - includes registration, workshop materials, workshop t-shirts, meals, and lodging. With a pre-registration minimum of 7 students per school, one advisor per school may register for $100; otherwise the cost is $275/advisor.

Online pre-registration will be available in February 2017!

How to Register

REGISTER EARLY! Delegates will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and dorms will be assigned based on our receipt of your school's completed registration and payment.

Advisors must register their students as part of their school delegation; students may not register themselves individually. If you are a student and wish to attend the NMASC Summer Workshop, please talk to your advisor.

Workshop Fee: $275/person (includes lodging in college dormitories, meals starting with lunch Tuesday thru lunch on Friday, banquet, supplies, materials, workshop t-shirts, and campus facilities. Transportation is the responsibility of the school.)

When a school registers 7 or more students from their school, the workshop registration fee for one same-school advisor is just $100. Additional adults are $275/ea.

There are no refunds, however we allow same-gender substitutions at no charge by May 26.

Please Note

The NMASC Summer Workshop program is designed to provide optimal opportunities for participants to achieve preparation for their leadership roles when they return to their schools. For this reason:

  • students are to remain on campus for the entire workshop and to attend all workshop activities.
  • there is a no-visitor policy. Parents/guardians and school officials are welcome to report to the workshop headquarters to meet with a student.
  • private automobiles (with the exception of advisors' vehicles) are not allowed.


For students and advisors, the NASC National Conference offers opportunities to meet and network with other leaders from across the United States and around the world, obtain new ideas from informative speakers and workshops, and ascertain innovative ideas about service learning. Participants will come away with renewed enthusiasm for student council involvement at their schools and new projects and ideas to implement— all while developing stronger leadership skills and friendships.
