This year in FBLA is an extraordinary year; it marks the 75th Anniversary (Diamond Anniversary) of National FBLA, the 50th Anniversary of North Dakota FBLA and the 10th Anniversary of Rugby High School FBLA.
Members of the Rugby Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter attended the 2016 ND FBLA Fall Leadership Conference in Bismarck on October 2 and 3. About 500 FBLA members 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, being happy, and creativity. In addition, chapters had an opportunity to work together in developing a program of activities for the year that focused on state and national FBLA programs.
Congratulations to Sara Bourne, Jacob Blessum, Dessa Denich, Amber Schmaltz, Rylee Kuntz and Jenna Wangler for their successful participation at the conference and bringing home this knowledge to share with their chapter members.
