LCN Family, convention time is upon us!
We are extremely proud to announce that the 11th annual convention of the Lebanese Collegiate Network (LCN) will be hosted at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, California from April 6 – 8th, 2018!
Last year, University of Michigan, Dearborn won the LCN’s Most Outstanding University Lebanese Club award. With 24 University Lebanese Clubs registered this year and the LCN entering over a decade since its inception, there is no doubt that this convention promises to be one of the best to date.
The national convention is LCN’s hallmark event, and we cannot wait to see you there! The goal of the LCN is to create an environment that fosters the growth and development of upcoming leaders through workshops and training sessions. These leadership sessions will provide the tools necessary for open-minded discussion and healthy dialogue. Leadership qualities are cultivated by establishing common ground and problem solving skills, as well as promoting research and community involvement. The annual convention not only provides the opportunity to develop and hone these skills through the leadership workshops and training, but also gives members access to a lasting network of peers and professionals located throughout the United States and the world.
Convention registration is easy. Every page on the convention registration site has the registration link to Eventbrite. [Remember to register early; prices will increase periodically as we get closer to the date and tickets are likely to sell out!]
The LCN is excited to be partnering with the USC Lebanese Club in hosting this year’s convention. Hotel reservations for the Radisson Midtown Hotel at USC are automatically preset for Friday, April 6 – Sunday, April 8, 2018.
