        Finding the Right Event

        10/17/2012
        Contributed by National Officers

        Hello BPA’ers!

        The spooky month of October has arrived and that means Halloween is coming (It’s my favorite holiday of the year)! I’m sure all of you are excited for the sweets and the treats! While enjoying your favorite candy bar, it might be a good time to start thinking about what events you want to compete in this year. If you love speaking in front of people, then Prepared Speech or Extemporaneous Speech is the right event for you! Express your thoughts and show the judges what you’ve got! Are you an expert in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Access? Great! There is a whole variety of events from Keyboarding Production to Database Applications that can be a perfect fit for you! Or are you someone who absolutely LOVES computer programming? Hey! We’ve got all that for you too! Under the Information Technology category, there are events including: C++ Programming, Java Programming, Visual Basic Programming, and so many more! Some may ask: “I’m not really good in any of these areas…what should I do?” Don't worry! Interview Skills is a fantastic event for everyone! You’ll learn a lot from the experience and have the opportunity to practice for your future job interviews! Want to have a blast with your best friends? No problem! We have team events such as: Video Production Team, Presentation Management Team, Administrative Support Team, etc! Recruit your friends to join BPA and bring them along to the conferences!

        I hope you all enjoy this “sweet” month of October and as always, if you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email anytime! We would love to hear from you!

        Love you all!
