Yesterday, eight of us rode the minibus to Ball State University in Muncie for the 2014-15 Fall Leadership Conference. This was the first time we sent anyone to the FLC, so we were not entirely sure what to expect.
The conference initiated with a warm welcome from the Indiana Association State Officer team and a couple other speakers. Then, we chose between a list of presentations spanning topics such as How to Become an Effective Leader, What BPA Can Do For You, How to Manage Time Wisely, Dress to Impress, Social Media Do's and Don'ts, and a few others.
Halfway through, we took a break to browse the Ball State bookstores. Then we ate lunch at one of the excess of ten on-campus cafeterias. Chick-fil-a, Papa Johns, and a couple other restaurants were offered there.
After lunch, we took a tour of the Ball State campus. Of course, it was freezing outside and sleeting, but we still enjoyed the tour. Ball State has a great campus and was an excellent host for the conference.
Just before adjourning, the state officers passed out some door prizes by drawing ticket numbers that were handed out at each meeting. None of our members were lucky enough to receive a prize, but some people were lucky enough to win more than one... There's always next year.
We're sending several members and hopefully some non-members to the Fall Leadership Conference on Saturday. It will take place at the Miller College of Business on the Ball State University campus in Muncie.
The FLC is a tool used to inform attendees about BPA activities and traditions. It's also used to attract and recruit new members, so non-members are welcome to join. It's the initial conference that advertises what BPA is all about.
We will depart the high school at 6:45 A.M. on Saturday. Those going on the trip are to bring money for breakfast at McDonalds and lunch on the campus. No transportation or registration fees are required.
Our chapter unfortunately did not make it to the FLC last year, so we're excited to see what it's like!
The Fall Leadership Conference (FLC) is a tool used primarily to attract and recruit new members. This initial conference informs attendees of what BPA is all about. Both existing members and those interested in joining BPA are welcome to attend the conference. The Frontier BPA chapter does not require anyone to pay a fee to attend.
