Crete FBLA's Legacy of Leadership: SLC 2017
Taking place in Omaha, eight Crete FBLA members attended State Leadership Conference (SLC) April 6th through 8th, which included participating in a business tour, competing in business competitive events, and attending leadership seminars. This year's FBLA national theme is "A Legacy of Leadership-75 Years of Excellence."
-Over 2,200 members and advisers from FBLA chapters across the state attended. "Attending this conference allowed me to go out of my comfort zone by meeting new people."-Hannah R.
-Presentation at Nebraska Medicine about different aspect of the healthcare organization. Students learned about marketing, human resources, and clinical careers. "It was really cool, to hear about many different types of jobs. I learned that there are so many more jobs that represent a hospital than just the doctors itself, I even found out about a job I would love."-Claire E.
-Leadership seminars on networking, dressing professionally, planning for college, and the importance of community service. "I really enjoyed the seminars as they not only gave insight on business, but on how to become more confident in general and how to properly interact with a new person."-Haylee F.
-Over 40 business-related competitive events. "Attending SLC this year made me a better competitive member. Next year I'll definitely come prepared and I can't wait." - Huong N. And "I am so unbelievably thankful for the experiences I had at my last State Leadership Conference. I cannot thank this organization enough for all that is has provided me over the past four years and I am so excited to close it all at nationals this summer in Anaheim!"-Roni M.
