2. Georgia International Leadership Conference - Free Opportunity for UGA Students!

Get Excited! It is registration time for the Georgia International Leadership Conference (GILC). GILC is an awesome opportunity for UGA students to meet with international and U.S. students who are leaders on other Georgia campuses for international and multinational populations.

  

Please read below carefully for important information / full details


What:  The Georgia International Leadership Conference (GILC) is designed for international students and U.S. students working with international/multinational organizations. All participants must be currently enrolled at Georgia colleges and universities. The conference aims to leverage these students' international experiences to promote leadership, cross-cultural communication, and build social networks.  Students will participate in cultural simulation games, be exposed to principles of leadership, and have a better understanding of their leadership styles. 


Who:  UGA students that will be enrolled in classes at UGA during spring 2012 are eligible to attend GILC 2012. 


When:  This year's conference will be held from February 24th-26th, 2012 in Eatonton, Georgia at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center.  We will discuss specific arrival/departure times in the spring semester.

 

Cost: International Student Life will be able to cover the cost of all participants in GILC. However, in order to reserve your spot on the roster you must submit a $70 deposit  by cash or a check made payable to: The University of Georgia / International Student Life. Students who submit this deposit in person at the ISL Office, 210 Memorial Hall, will be given a link to complete their application online. Students must complete the online application after submitting the deposit and receiving the link. Students who attend the conference will be given their deposit back in the form they presented it to the office at the conclusion of the trip. Students who submit a deposit but fail to attend the conference will not have their deposit returned to them. Be sure to consult your schedules and speak to any professors in advance of making the deposit in order to ensure that you do not have any conflicts with the trip.


Transportation:  ISL will provide UGA vans to help transport students to Rock Eagle and back to Athens.  (There is no additional charge for this service.) Please note that if you travel separately from the ISL UGA vans, you will not be given any additional money for traveling expenses.
