“The skills for good leadership” was the theme of the Student Leadership Development Conference held by Montclair State University’s Center for Career Services and Community-based Learning on Friday, February 27, 2009.

The event combined workshops on skills, competencies, and characteristics of leadership with faculty, corporate partners, and staff, and started with a keynote address from Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. (8th district of New Jersey) and remarks from event sponsor Nick Iannitelli, senior partner of New York Life and Company, who is also a Montclair State alumnus.

At this event, Congressman Pascrell, a former New Jersey educator, was honored with a certificate of appreciation presented by SGA President Ron Chicken on behalf of the students of Montclair State for his dedication and support, and for championing the cause of education.
