LPO (Leadership, Policy, & Organizations)

I'm a student, why join a professional organization?

  1. Professional organizations are a great place to start building relationships that could help you throughout your career.
  2. You will create networks with professionals active in your industry and get grounded in the practice of all the theory you're learning.
  3. Membership for students is often free or greatly reduced.
  4. Access to resources and information important to your field, including job postings.
  5. There are lots of opportunities for mentorship and professional development.
