FBLA Goes to Nationals
During the week of June 29-July 2, Brandon Berg, Tony Berg, and SCC FBLA Advisor Nicholas Haug joined over 11,000 FBLA members in Chicago for the 2015 FBLA National Leadership Conference. During their visit to Chicago, Brandon and Tony participated in their respective competitive events (Computer Problem Solving and Business Communications), attended professional workshops, entered open competitive events and took in many of the sights and sounds of Chicago.
It was during the State Leadership Conference in La Crosse (April 13-14) that Brandon (1st place) and Tony (3rd place) qualified for the National Leadership Conference. While their attempts did not bring either of them a top ten finish at the National Leadership Conference, both students learned a great deal and were able to gain even more business insight in their chosen areas. Being that both Tony and Brandon graduated this year, they won’t have the same opportunities next year but they are planning on transitioning into the collegiate level of FBLA when they settle into college life.
