The 52nd Wisconsin FBLA State Leadership Conference was hosted in Green Bay, WI on April 6-7. The State Leadership Conference brought outstanding young adults together for an unforgettable experience of FBLA enthusiasm and pride. This year, there were approximately 2,000 students, advisers, and guests who participated at the State Conference making this the largest state conference ever.
FBLA members from all areas of the state gathered in Green Bay at the Regency Suites Conference Center to attend workshops and four delegate assemblies, elect their new State Executive Board members, and compete in competitive events such as Business Ethics, Business Law, Emerging Business Issues, Web Page Design, Parliamentary Procedure, and Entrepreneurship. First and second place winners will be advancing to the National Leadership Conference to be held in Nashville, Tennessee in June. Some of the workshops at the SLC were Excellence Through Ethics, Making the Most of Opportunities in FBLA, and Project LEAD. Tours included Aurora BayCare Medical Center, WBAY-TV, Resch Center, WPS, and Lambeau Field Stadium. Members raised money for the Wisconsin FBLA-PBL Foundation by playing Monopoly and by participating in the March of Dimes Walk.
