Canastota High School FBLA Members Attend National Leadership Conference in Baltimore, Md.

More than 13,000 of America’s best and brightest youth traveled to Baltimore, Md., as they showcased their talents as future business leaders and vied for the opportunity to win more than $200,000 in cash awards.

Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL), the largest and oldest student business organization, held its National Leadership Conference in Baltimore from June 29–July 2. Participants from across the United States and three countries were in attendance for this exciting conference to sharpen their core business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 65 business and business-related competitive events.

Three Canastota High School members, Emily Case, Carly Cashel, and Lucas Barnello, attended the conference with their advisor, Mrs. Elizabeth Garofalo.

While at the conference, the Canastota members participated in competitive events, attended workshops, and served as state voting delegates in charge of electing the new national officer team. Members attended and completed a two-day leadership training, Institute for Leaders.

Emily Case represented the state in the Local Chapter Annual Business Report event as well as the Introduction to Parliamentary Procedure event. In order to qualify to compete at the national level, members had to first finish as a top qualifier at the State Leadership Conference held in April.

During the trip, members were able to visit the National Aquarium, Washington, DC, the Smithsonian Museums, as well as attend the Orioles vs LA Angels baseball game at Camden Yards.

Canastota FBLA would like to thank our generous donors for their help in achieving this goal:

Canastota Central School District, Lorraine Bruno Arsenault – Bruno Properties, Canastota Chamber of Commerce, Dr. James Colocotronis, Cerio Law Office, New York State Bus Sales, Securities and Investment Advisors
