The Illinois Future Business Leaders of America State Leadership Conference is held in March/April at the Crowne Plaza Springfield Hotel. Future Business Leaders of America is a nonprofit career and technical student organization that prepares high school students for careers in business and business education. At the State Leadership Conference, FBLA members from all over the state of Illinois will compete in many events to test their knowledge and application of business related subjects.
Your help in supporting the future business leaders would be greatly appreciated. We are asking for your assistance to sponsor one (or more) of the competitive events listed on the enclosed event sponsor form. The requested donation is $150 per event—$75 for the first-place winner at the state conference and $75 to the top person who participates in the event at the national conference. You will receive recognition at the conference for sponsoring the competitive event and plaques. In addition, you are welcome to attend the conference and present the awards.
Please complete the information on the form for the competitive event(s) that you would be willing to sponsor. Before, during, and after the State Leadership Conference, the FBLA members and advisers will be informed of who is sponsoring the competitive events.
