Hello NYS FBLA

My name is Julie Nwaogbe and I am the Executive Vice President of NYS FBLA for the 2016-2017 school year! I am so excited to serve as your EVP and I am even more excited to see what the future holds for this FBLA season. The State Officer attended State Officer Training from July 17-22, where we worked tirelessly to make sure that this school year would be the best NYS FBLA has ever seen. The theme for this year’s State Leadership Conference is “Suit Up, Step Up” and our state charity is the ALS Association. Also at SOT, we developed the Program of Work to make sure members would enjoy themselves, as well as become more active and receive more recognition at SLC and NLC. As you may know, the year 2017 marks the 75th anniversary for national FBLA! A lot of the activities outlined in the POW correlate with the “Become a Diamond Chapter” recognition award that will be given at NLC, so not only will you be rewarded in New York, you will be rewarded nationally! I am looking forward to actively participating with everyone this year to make sure this is a year to remember.
