ASSE also offers a free student leadership conference at locations throughout the U.S. each November that provide not only a professional development program, but classes in leadership with top SH&E professionals from around the globe. At the conference, members and staff help with career preparedness such as with resumes, mock job interviews, and review student career goals and provide guidance. The next student leadership conference will be held in Chicago. Benefits for student members include a free year of membership (over $120 value) just after graduation; a free practice specialty subscription for the first year of membership; student rates for the annual ASSE professional development conference; access to all recorded webinars via the student online access portal for free.
