State President

Hello, Wisconsin FBLA!


I hope you’re all “Stepping up to the Challenge” at the start of this 2014-15 school year! Our FBLA season is about to kick off to a great start!


Your officer team is hard at work getting ready for workshops for the Fall Leadership Labs, being held in Eau Claire on September 29th, Appleton on September 30th, and Madison on October 1st. Along with four officers at each location, our keynote speaker for the year, Ms. Shannon Oleen, will be presenting. Shannon has been a great resource for us over the past few months, and we hope you will learn as much from her as we have.


Another event being held this fall is the National Fall Leadership Conference in Minneapolis, MN from November 14-15. This conference, hosted by Iowa FBLA, will be a great way to network with members from other states, while still gaining ideas to bring back to your chapters!


Your Wisconsin FBLA state officers are excited to hear from you, as well! If you have any questions, comments, or need advice on a chapter activity, please feel free to contact any officer using the contact information found on the Officers & Staff page of our site.


I hope to see you all soon!



Cheyenne Mackai

2014-15 Wisconsin FBLA State President
