Apex-3 Conference Theme

Apex-3 Conference Theme

Illuminate: the Power of You

This year, the Apex-3 conference staff worked diligently to select a conference theme that describes the next chapter of the Southwest UVSA story.  

Apex-1 was the defining moment in which we were finally able to take the next step and showcase our region in the form of a leadership conference in Colorado.  We focused on cultivating leadership development within our region and strengthening the bonds with our established states and schools.  We saw an increase in support from other UVSAs across the country and realized that our region was truly “On the Rise”.

We traveled down the road to Arizona for Apex-2, where we sought to “Ignite the Embers” within our attendees to realize their own potential and fuel their passions to further contribute to their community.  As a result, we continued to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment of togetherness and further uniting our region under one goal.

With our embers still burning bright, we envision this year’s conference to empower our attendees to step up to new challenges and opportunities.  Our goal is the to provide resources and experiences that inspire our attendees to take action and create change after their weekend in Utah.  Together, we can “Illuminate” the path towards a brighter future, emphasizing the collective power of the individual, and continue to be the beacon of leadership for generations to come.

Our generous sponsors

We want to take the time out to thank our sponsors for making Apex-3 Possible.
