President Allie Chang of NSMH, Cal Poly Pomona, explained  the benefits students receive when they attend a national conference.   

Attending is important because it allows students the opportunities to connect with students from different schools, to attend workshops, ask industry professionals questions and see opportunities different companies are offering that they might not see at our school. I wanted to fundraise as much as possible for this conference to allow students to attend and learn without having to worry about the finances.”
