Many people love fall. The changing of the leaves, the nice cold breeze, and the smell of pumpkin spice fills the air. But for Garrard FBLA, fall brings the anticipation for the Fall Leadership Conference held at Eastern Kentucky University!
The Fall Leadership conference is a great trip for everyone in FBLA. It’s a perfect experience for members to gain knowledge of FBLA, meet other members from surrounding schools, and have tons of fun!
During the conference on October the 24th, students were broken into different learning groups and put into a classroom. Each class focused on a different aspect of FBLA. Activities ranged from leadership training, icebreakers, fundraising, community relations, and project based learning. In addition, chapter officers were trained on how their office functioned and specifically how to improve in their leadership position.
In addition, members were informed that this year the FBLA theme is “A World of Opportunity.” FBLA gives students the necessary skills in order to be successful with the opportunities given to them throughout their lives. Some opportunities Garrard FBLA has planned for their members this year are competitions, meetings, and FBLA outings this year and the Fall Leadership conference was a perfect way to kick off the year!
