The Building A Legacy Conference is canceled for 2022,
and will be back for 2023!


The Building A Legacy Conference is Daemen's very own student conference where both aspiring and experienced student leaders can learn from one another about best practices in being a leader here at Daemen. This half day conference will provide students the opportunity to learn from one another and to learn from our distinguished Daemen alumni.


Any questions or concerns can be directed to Student Activities. Thank you for your time and we hope to see you at the 2023 Building A Legacy Conference!
