Midland hosts Future Business Leaders of America Day

Feb 7th , 2013

Midland University’s Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) hosted the annual Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Day earlier this week. The event yielded a record turnout with approximately 186 students from 17 high schools in attendance.

The daylong event, coordinated by Midland PBL students, helped sharpen leadership skills in order to prepare participants for the upcoming Nebraska FBLA State Leadership Conference. The event featured competitions in a variety of skill-based categories, including test taking, job interviews, accounting, business law, international business, marketing, and a Quiz Bowl.

In addition to earning awards, FBLA participants were given feedback on interviews and had an opportunity to become more confident presenters and test takers. For Midland students, the event served as a chance to lead, organize and manage a major event.
