State President's Message

WI FBLA State Present 2015-2016
Hello Wisconsin FBLA!
 
My name is Sydney Wilcox, and I have the honor of serving as your 2015-2016 State President for the next school year. I am a junior at Seymour Community High School in Region III, have been involved at the local level since my freshman year of high school, and served as your 2014-15 State Secretary/Treasurer.
 
As this school year starts to come to a close, the National Leadership Conference (NLC) quickly approaches. This year the conference will be held in the Windy City, Chicago, Illinois. Wisconsin FBLA members will have the opportunity to compete with the best of the best FBLA members in the United States and Puerto Rico. Over 9,000 other students will be in attendance at the conference, so it is a great opportunity to network and make new connections.
 
The 2015-16 State Officer team has been hard at work planning and preparing initiatives for this coming year, and doing our best to help you “Step Up to the Challenge.” I hope to see you all June 28-29 for the Institute for Leaders and on June 29-July 2 for the National Leadership Conference!
Sincerely,
 
Sydney Wilcox
2015-16 Wisconsin FBLA State President
