FBLA Fall Leadership Conference
On Friday, September 26, the CVU Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Club, attended the Fall Leadership conference at the State House in Montpelier, Vermont. For many, this was their first FBLA experience, while for others this was a familiar trip. FBLA students from 12 other Vermont schools also attended the conference, making it a well attended meeting. The meeting kicked off with an introduction of our state officers, which includes CVU students Bailee Pudvar and Chris Mallow. During the opening session CVU’s own Colleen Wedge was recognized for her work as the 2013-14 Executive Director.
The keynote speaker was Vermont born, New York City director, Michael “Chase” Gosselin.Gosselin shared his life story detailing his rise as a 13 year-old director, to a successful New York City director, who currently is working with world renowned British producer Cameron Macintosh. Gosselin has directed and choreographed numerous productions during his career, which is an astounding feat considering he is only 20 years old. Gosselin’s message of perseverance seemed to resonate with many attendees as it exemplified a Vermont success story.
Following his speech, students were told to form inter school groups and come up with ideas to help raise money for FBLA’s flagship charity, March of Dimes. The group with the best ideas won March of Dimes t-shirts. Two CVU students were in the in winning group: Olivia Machanic and Lyndsey Clos.
Following the group brainstorming, FBLA members were split up into various workshops that focused on how to run for FBLA State Office, dressing for a job interview, and credit basics. Each of these workshops were informative and helped students gain a better understanding of future endeavors. We thoroughly enjoyed this first FBLA conference of the year, and would like to extend our thanks to Tamie-Jo Dickinson and Colleen Wedge for helping to make this possible.
