Members of the Stanley Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter attended the ND FBLA Fall Leadership Conference in Bismarck on October 8-9. Over 570 FBLA high school and middle school members and advisers from across the state participated in this conference where the emphasis was on developing the leadership skills of local chapter members.

Members attending the conference had the opportunity to participate in sessions that focused on leadership development, time management, investing, and career exploration. In addition, chapters had an opportunity to learn about state and national FBLA membership and recognition programs. Our State Social Media Coordinator, Ian Conard, helped lead this conference with his state officer team. He also put on a workshop for members about communication.

FBLA is a professional organization for students interested in pursuing business careers. This year’s theme “Together We Achieve” reflects the mission and goals that FBLA members strive to achieve. North Dakota FBLA members are some of the best and brightest of today’s young people. FBLA’s mission is to inspire and prepare students to become community-minded business leaders in a global society through relevant career preparation and leadership experience.
