FBLA mem­bers el­e­vate their fu­ture

Mem­bers took trip to Re­gional Lead­er­ship Work­shop and din­ing eti­quette lun­cheon

Northern Berks Patriot Item - - LOCAL NEWS - From Fleet­wood FBLA

Twenty-five stu­dents from the Fleet­wood High School Chap­ter of the Fu­ture Busi­ness Lead­ers of Amer­ica took their lead­er­ship skills to the next level by at­tend­ing the Re­gion 8 Lead­er­ship Work­shop. Those in at­ten­dance learned about the PA FBLA State Pro­ject, the Alzheimer’s As­so­ci­a­tion, and ways that their chap­ter could as­sist the or­ga­ni­za­tion. Mem­bers also learned about ap­pro­pri­ate busi­ness at­tire to wear for job in­ter­views through a pre­sen­ta­tion spon­sored by the Men’s Ware­house. Chap­ter of­fi­cers in­ter­acted with those of­fi­cers from other schools and shared ideas about ways to in­crease mem­ber­ship and fundraise while the rest of the mem­bers net­worked with lo­cal col­leges and non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Fol­low­ing the work­shop, Fleet­wood mem­bers learned about and prac­ticed din­ing eti­quette at Vin­cenzo’s. Mem­bers were re­quired to read in­for­ma­tion, dis­cussed eti­quette rules for busi­ness meet­ings, and com­pleted a quiz prior to eat­ing. Each mem­ber also prac­ticed money man­age­ment skills by pay­ing for their own meal, plus tax and tip.

Over­all, this day pro­vided an in-depth look at FBLA and just a few of its pro­grams


of work. Those that at­tended learned a lot about the or­ga­ni­za­tion.
