DISTRICT BPA WINNERS
As a co-curricular organization, Business Professionals of America has the ability to enhance student participation in professional, civic, service and social endeavors. Business Professionals of America members participate in these activities to accomplish their goals of self-improvement, leadership development, professionalism, community service, career development, public relations, student cooperation, safety and health.
Members may participate in three levels of competitions and conferences. Regional Leadership Conference is held at Ivy Tech in Evansville on a Friday in December. If successful there, they advance to the State Leadership Conference in Downtown Indianapolis for three days in March (two out of school). If they advance again, they may attend the National Leadership conference for five days in early May. That location rotates between Dallas, Anaheim, Orlando, Chicago and Washington DC.
Competitions include the following categories: Accounting and Finance, Business Administration, Management Information Systems, Digital Communication and Design, Management, Marketing and Communication and Health Administration.
There are MANY opportunities for leadership roles, scholarships and awards for BPA members. Our local club has officers and anyone may run to be a Regional, State or National officer. They are the ones who help organize the conferences. As a national organization, it is widely known by employers and business leaders everywhere.
