Fall Leadership Conference

The fall leadership conference for Secondary BPA chapters located in the Lower Peninsula was held on October 5, 2018. New and prospective chapters are required to attend this conference at the Lansing Center located in downtown Lansing.

Advisors in the Upper Peninsula attendeed an advisors meeting on October 8, 2018. The regional advisor for that meeting provided details for that event.

At the FLC each year, we plan different activities that focus on specific values. The workshops focus on networking, creativity, teamwork, ethics, diversity, defining differences, leadership in service, and enthusiasm. All of this is accomplished in a fun, energetic way.

Speakers provide activities designed to start the year off with a jump. Participants create a moving, functional machine and sell it to the public. The catch? This invention is made of people! This often-outrageous activity gets participants thinking about teamwork and promotion of BPA from a whole new perspective.

Workshops for the conference will be presented by the 2018-2019 Michigan BPA State Executive Council and FOCUS Training. The workshop titles were Leadership Inc., Team Building, and Trivia Pursuit.
