Surf’s Up with FBLA adviser workshop


The Surf’s Up with FBLA adviser workshop held June 2 in Kearney found 36 Nebraska FBLA advisers, new and veteran, learning about program of work, conferences, recognition programs, recruitment strategies, fundraising ideas and more. The Nebraska FBLA Board of Directors (Tennille Gifford, Dawn Friedrich, Pat Hinkle, Shawn Mulligan, Nick Jarzynka and Sid Conrad) planned and hosted the workshop.

Alyse Andreasen, new adviser at Wilber-Clatonia FBLA, bridged the gap from member to adviser by sharing how the recognition events she earned as an FBLA member had motivated her to strive for the top FBLA honors through the Business Achievement Awards. Pat Olson, Blair FBLA adviser, shared recruitment strategies that took her chapter to the top as one of the largest chapters in the state. In addition, she discussed successful fundraising ideas to support the chapter’s activities.

Other presenters included members of the Board of Directors. The day provided advisers the time to network and plan for the upcoming school year.
