On February 15, 2012, district 3S of New York State Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) will holds its annual Fall District Meeting at Lakeland High School. State Vice President of District 3S, Jash Patel, State Treasurer, Aatish Bathija, and Board of Trustee member, Ms. Charlene Nigro, have worked restlessly towards creating one of the most momentous and competitive Spring District Meetings in the state. This conference can result in over eight chapters attending. After endless preparation District 3S’ Spring District Meeting will be filled with nonstop competition, public speaking opportunity and of course, a memory that lasts a life time.
This conference will compose of several impactful events. First, we will be holding five performance events. The winner in each of these events will represent District 3S at the state level. If they win at the state level they will compete at the national level and have the opportunity to stand on stage in front of 8000 FBLA members. Second, each chapter attending will pick two students to compete in the Battle of the Best. The winner will hold bragging rights as the most knowledgably chapter within District 3S until our next district meeting. Last, state officer candidates will be given the feared state officer exam. This exam determines whether a member is eligible to run for state officer. If the member becomes a New York FBLA State Officer s/he, along with a few other FBLA members will lead our state to the “Gateway to Greatness.”
Finally, after a long, intense day of unlocking their true potential, students will leave Lakeland High School with confidence, unbelievable skills, and of course the motivation to continue to become the future business leader of America. They will return to their chapter, with a smile on their face and the image of a leader. Some will go home with trophies and honor, while others go home with the motivation to place at the State Leadership Conference in one of the 55+ competitions. As they continue to better their school, NYS FBLA, and of course their community, they will never forget the most memorable meeting of the year thus far.
