Fall Leadership Conference

The fall leadership conference for Secondary BPA chapters located in the Lower Peninsula will be held on October 2, 2017. New and prospective chapters are required to attend this conference at the Lansing Center located in downtown Lansing.

Advisors in the Upper Peninsula will attend an advisors meeting on October 10, 2017. The regional advisor for that meeting will provide 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.

The following workshops are presented by FOCUS Training:

2017 Fall Leadership Conference Workshops
Creative Thinking Challenges
Brain-teasers, puzzles, enigmas? Tackling unusual and challenging problems is something every leader needs to deal with. Creative Thinking Challenges is a crash course in creative problem solving and time management.
Networking Like a Pro
70% of all jobs are found through networking. Knowing how to effectively network can benefit students in jobs, college, and competition. In this session participants will learn the tools needed to grow and maintain their own personal network.
What do you Bring to the Table?
In this fun and engaging activity lead by the state officer team, student leaders will learn the value and effectiveness of a diverse well-rounded team. This workshop will provide students the chance to work as a team to complete a task and understand that everyone brings something valuable and unique "to the table."
