Jamestown's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter has had a busy last month — and will look forward to a busy end of the semester, in turn — as its District Leadership Conference approaches in early 2020.
The 2019-20 Jamestown FBLA will be awarded the "Perfect Vision" award at the 2020 District Leadership Conference in Moberly in February. As a chapter, the group has increased its membership by 1o members from its 2018-2019 membership total. The membership campaign incentivizes chapter growth with prizes available at the conference.
In preparation for the trip, the group will be selling Holidaygrams to raise money to attend, where the group will have students competing in various events.
Last month, the FBLA hosted a similar fundraiser, selling Halloween Candygrams, to raise money in advance of a planned field trip Dec. 6 to the University of Missouri-Columbia's School of Business.
The group has also renewed its contract with the Missouri Department of Transportation to clean a mile stretch of Missouri 87 outside of Jamestown.
