Student Council Advisor Professional Development from the Alliance for Student Activities
Several years ago, the Alliance for Student Activities interviewed student council advisors around the nation and produced short "quick pick" videos in which these advisers shared their knowledge and experience on a variety of relevant topics.
The Alliance has graciously allowed us to share these videos with you—in the hopes that you can glean some useful information, a new idea or two, or perhaps even a spark of inspiration.
Simply click the 'Advisor Professional Development' link that appears when you mouseover the 'Resources' button in the main navigation bar here on NMASC.org, or click here. We hope you find them helpful!
