State President's Message

Hello Wisconsin FBLA!

Welcome to 2015! Have you all made your resolutions? A few of mine include doing well on exams, working hard on my event for the Regional Leadership Conference, and preparing for wherever life may take me over the next few months, including college!

Speaking of Regionals, January is a great time to finish preparing for your competitive event. Study materials are available through the state office website or through your adviser. In addition, be sure to practice any presentations or speeches you may be giving, and be sure to bring all the materials you need (e.g. projector, notecards, calculator, pencils, etc.) A good way to get feedback is to present in front of your chapter at a meeting!

Keep working on your BAA's, too! These achievements are huge, and we want to recognize you on stage at SLC in La Crosse April 13-14, 2015, so contact your adviser if you are not signed up yet. As always, feel free to contact any of the State Officers if you have any questions, want to do a Google Hangout, or would like to start a chapter!

Sincerely,

Cheyenne Mackai

2014-15 Wisconsin FBLA State President
