Mineral Point Future Business Leaders of America members (Left to Right) Zula Flanary, Abi Callaway, Zoe Hay and Jordyn Abbott traveled to the La Crosse Center in La Crosse, along with 2500 FBLA members from around the state, as special delegates at FBLA State Leadership Conference on April 11 – 12.

The two day conference had workshops and tours for members to attend to increase their business knowledge as well as compete in business events. Members in attendance were able to hear from keynote speaker Kyle Scheele who shows students how their lives will be defined by the things they do.

While at the conference members were able to make connections with business leaders while touring facilities like Kwik Trip Headquarters, La Crosse Sign, WKBT, River State Truck, UW La Crosse, and Viterbo University to name a few. Also at the conference students were able to raise money for the March of Dimes through a Miracle Minute and participate in a March of Dimes Walk.

Workshop choices such as Career Exploration; Tips for a Successful College Student; You and the World of Work; and Fame, Fortune or Failure were offered for students to attend when not on a business tour or competing in an event. In addition, members participated in a scavenger hunt using an app called Goose Chase where they could complete fun missions and compete against other schools for prizes.

While at the conference students were able to show their participation in events and earn badges by tracking their attendance at tours, workshops and events. State Leadership Conference was a great learning experience for the Mineral Point FBLA members.
