Two college students will talk about their experiences at a national leadership conference.
The public event will start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in the mall-level meeting room at Capital Manor, 1955 Salem-Dallas Highway NW, Salem.
The event is sponsored by the Salem branch of American Association of University Women.
The students are Meghan Cusick, a sophomore at Willamette University, and Adrianne Schneider, a senior at Western Oregon University. They were at the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders at the University of Maryland.
Cusick was selected after she participated in another AAUW-sponsored session, Willamette Elect Her, which was led by the deputy press secretary to House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Schneider won a scholarship from Oregon AAUW that enabled her to attend the national conference.
