Turning Point USA’s annual Southern Regional Conference will be held September 24 & 25, 2021 in Panama City Beach, FL. Students who attend this two-day conference will hear from guest speakers, participate in customized activist training sessions, and network with 300+ students who are actively involved in the conservative movement in the Gulf and South Central regions. Following a TPUSA conference, these activists return to their campuses more energized than ever and with the proper tools and training on how to defend conservatism on their campus.

This can’t-miss conference is a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills, enhance your activism techniques, receive training, and get connected with resources and opportunities offered by TPUSA and its partner organizations.
