It was a GREAT Fall Leadership Conference at Camp Ripley! We ended up with 26 programs and about 200 people. If you happen to see or be in touch with Mike and/or Konie from St. Cloud ALC, please thank them. Those two do a fantastic job of organizing this conference year after year for us with Camp Ripley.

We have added the Animoto video from this year's conference so you can get idea of just how wonderful the confernce was!

A new slate of student officers is elected each year at the conference. Officers serve as MAAP representatives within their schools and assist in planning and implementing MAAP activities for the year. Each school may choose to run one candidate for this leadership team. There is a limit as to how many students a chapter may bring from their member school (4 to 6).



In 2016 the MAAP STARS Leadership Conference will be held November 9th and 10th at Camp Ripley. The registration form is availabe on this page. The MAAP STARS New Officer Training will be December 8 & 9, 2016.
