SLC College Fair and Legacy Launcher Sponsor

You are cordially invited to attend the 2018 BPA State Leadership Conference as a College Fair Exhibitor and/or a Legacy Launcher Sponsor. During our annual conference, there will be approximately 2,000 high school students, 150 business teachers, and other business professionals in attendance.

Our College Fair gives you the opportunity to recruit potential students to attend your esteemed college or university. Many of our students have shared stories that they made their decision of where to attend college based upon meeting representatives at our BPA State Leadership Conference. College Fair exhibit space is available on a first come-first serve basis.

You also have an opportunity to present a 45-minute workshop in our Legacy Launcher series. Our Legacy Launcher series provides students with wealth of information to help launch the next phase of their life outside of high school. There are 12 workshops in the series during our annual conference. We are sure you would enjoy giving a presentation to our student members.
