The Minden and Wilcox-Hildreth Chapters of FBLA traveled to Chicago, Illinois, for the National Leadership Conference held June 28 to July 3. Over 11,000 members, advisers and guests from across the nation attended the 2015 NLC held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Nebraska was represented by over 360 members, advisers, and guests.
While in Chicago, members had the opportunity to network with members from across the nation, listen to workshop presenters, and explore the city. Minden and Wilcox-Hildreth FBLA members toured Navy Pier, sailed on a signature Wendella lake and river tour that focused on Chicago’s rich architectural heritage and history, walked around Millennium Park and up and down Michigan Avenue, and spent an evening attending a performance of the Blue Man Group. They also ate at the famous Giordano’s where they experienced Chicago’s deep dish pizza and Weber Grill Restaurant where everything is prepared over an open flame on authentic giant Weber charcoal grills.
Minden FBLA qualified three members to compete in two events. The competitors and their events included Jadyn Horner, Introduction to Business Communication and Owen Bridges and Sydney Wilson, Mobile App Development.
