Throughout the year, RIFBLA has been promoting business education, community service, and leadership through a variety of events, conferences, and guest speakers. Our organization would like to thank businesses, educators, advisors, and the community for making these events possible, and allowing the next generation to have access to these valuable learning experiences.
State Fall Leadership Conference
At this year's fall conference, students heard from valuable business leaders, attended workshops, networked, and were introduced to plans for the year.
Special thanks to our speakers: Southern Region VP Allyssa Covert, JWU Admissions Representative Justin Mercier, and JWU Catering Director and Keynote speaker Dean Mistretta.
Statewide TomWat Fundraiser
From November until December, FBLA members statewide were encouraged to participate in the TomWat fundraiser, where they sold common household items to family, friends, and teachers. Proceeds went to the RI FBLA organization. Through this fundraiser, students learned communication, leadership, and sales skills. Thank you to all students, advisers, and consumers involved in the event.
