Started in 1993, this annual conference brings students together to network, share ideas, and develop skills that help them be more effective leaders of community and civic engagement efforts. Topics include volunteerism, leadership, service-learning, social entrepreneurship, advocacy and activism. During the day, the Community Impact Award is presented to students selected by each member campus, and the Barnhill Civic Trailblazer Award is presented to one outstanding senior student in the state.

The event is hosted each year in November by a different campus. The schedule includes a Friday evening gathering and a full day on Saturday. 

Who should attend CSNAP?

Student leaders, especially of groups and organizations working towards community change. Each member campus should also plan to send its Community Impact Award winner. Space is limited and a registration fee is required.
