Want to Be a Great SG?

You have to train!

Great athletes train constantly to gain an edge. Great musicians never stop practicing. Great artists never stop learning and improving.

It should be the same with your Student Government!

It's not enough to offer a one-day training retreat for your new officers and members!

How can we expect to be an efficient and effective SG unless we intentionally train our members?

ASGA offers many training resources from retreat templates, workshops, and facilitation services, to training manuals and transitioning guides.
