My name is Juncheng Quan. I am the former President of the Barrington FBLA chapter and I had the honor of being elected RI FBLA State President for the 2019-2020 school year. I have been an active member of this organization for the past three years. I started freshmen year as the Assistance Community Service Chairman of my chapter before I became the chapter Treasurer my sophomore year, eventually serving as the Chapter President junior year. My goal next year is not only to elevate RI FBLA through increased membership and funds, but also through stronger connections with local businesses and leaders. I truly believe that through the efforts of the State Leadership Team next year, our great organization will become even greater. With currently 10 chapters and over 500 members statewide, FBLA has become the leading organization to inspire the future of business in Rhode Island, a legacy I can only hope to continue. In addition to FBLA, I am also the Co-Captain of Barrington’s Model Legislature team, and an active member of both the Barrington Debate and Model UN teams. In my freetime I enjoy photography, listening to music, and spending time with friends. I sincerely hope I, along with the wonderful State Officer Team, can make FBLA an unforgettable experience!
Looking forward to seeing you all next year!
