On Friday, Metea Business Professionals of America went to Oakbrook for the Fall Leadership Conference. There, schools sent in their top two candidates for election for a position on the state board. Members in attendance who were not candidates voted. Members also attended workshops to learn and develop their ideas.

Candidates for student board presented two-minute speeches, answered impromptu questions and had a meet and greet with non-candidate members. Two members of Metea BPA made the executive board; Ritvik Arora was elected Vice President and Ashwin Saxena was elected Secretary. The student board would decide on state affairs within the larger national BPA setting.

“There was also a game night that happened on Friday,” said junior Svanik Tandon. The Fall Leadership Conference sets up BPA members to compete in the State Leadership Conference in March.
