At the beginning of October, 20 high school students attended the FBLA State Fall Leadership conference. This two day event was held in Des Moines. The students participated in several workshops, and went on a business tour. The conference was kicked off by key note speaker, Kent Stock. Following the speaker, students had the opportunity to attend several workshops. Some of the workshops that students could attend included, leadership building, team building, college prep, and membership recruitment.
