Region IV is MORE! Region IV may only represent 5 states (Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas), but we are mighty and have lots of regional spirit and pride! Our regional conference is proud to host annual traditions such as outstanding educational sessions by students and professionals, great opportunities for leadership development for undergraduates, Roll Call, T-Shirt Swap and the always popular Skit and Song Competition.
