UVSA Summit, a segment of Project LEAD, is to develop technical and professional skills specific to VSA/VSU leaders. Started up by interim-president Theodore Pascual, the goal of UVSA Summit was provide the next generation of leaders an opportunity to learn from alumni. In contrast to Project LEAD’s VAHSA & UVSA camp, in which personal and social growth could be made, UVSA Summit sought to teach technical as well as professional skills to attendees.
The 2016 Theme for UVSA Summit was “Pride and Legacy,” aimed to inspire officers within UVSA to be proud of their dedication and commitment to their respective communities and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come. Hosted by the CSUF VSA at California State University, Fullerton on September 24th, 2016, more than 100 attendees arrived to learn. Starting off with keynote speaker Albert Chang, the day was held at full content. Workshops lead by alumnis and individuals who have once served as young adult leaders themselves, provided knowledge to younger generations. The highlight of the event was an open alumni panel consisting of various individuals who once took part in collegiatic VSA life, and now had served UVSA. Overall, UVSA summit provided a gateway of knowledge for the years to come.
Special thank you to all our alumni, CSUF VSA for hosting, and our staff. If not for our amazing staff and volunteers, we would not have be able to accomplish this event.
Much to love to Mid-West UVSA Cindy Nguyen for having come from Kansas just to attend this event.
