FBLA Fall Leadership Conference

By Brittany Smart, FBLA state officer and student at Alta High School

This year, the Utah FBLA Fall Leadership Conference was held at the Hilton Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah. Officers and active members from chapters across Utah were able to attend. We were able to ignite innovation throughout the conference. Listening to our great motivational keynote speaker, Mr. John Paul Murphy, and being able to recognize outstanding chapters, board members, and advisers in our opening session was a great way to start the conference.

The dance was also a huge success. Not only was it a blast, but we were also able to participate in a March for Dimes fundraiser as a state. Our president, Andy Ho, was locked in a jail cell outside the dance, and for every dollar donated he had to stay in the cell for two minutes. We were able to keep Andy in the cell for the entire dance! We thank everyone who participated and donated to the great cause.

Outstanding workshops were also a big part of the conference. PBL and FBLA state officers as well as presenters from businesses, universities, and other great organizations were able to teach, inspire, and motivate us to become better. It truly was an amazing conference, and we are grateful to all those who helped or participated in any way.

We hope to see you all again next year at our 2013 Fall Leadership Conference and look forward to our next state conference in March.
