          Hello BPA! We are now 2 months away from our National Leadership Conference! The National Center Staff, the Board of Trustees, and the National Officer Team has been hard at work over this past year planning for this conference! We are offering tons of opportunities for our members at this year’s conference. A few of those being:

          • Certification Lab sponsored by Certiport where you can test for your MTA or MOS. For more info, follow the link.
          • The Intern Program: Do you want to see what happens “behind the scenes”? Do you want to meet new people from across the country? Do you want the ultimate leadership experience? If you said, “Yes,” to any of these, you want to be an NLC Intern! Advisors register you for this through the online registration system. Approval in the intern program is granted by the local advisor and confirmed by selecting an intern event and submitting the online conference registration. No other approval is required. All applicants registering for the National Leadership Academy during the online conference registration process will be admitted.
          • BPA University which is designed to enhance the leadership and life skill development of our members. You will have the opportunity to engage in exciting Academies and development sessions sponsored and provided by partners including Adobe, Certiport, Kick It In, Next Step Academy, Journalism Education Association, Precision Exams and many more!

          • Service Palooza, which is a group event designed to bring members together to serve, network and celebrate on Friday, May 12. This activity is free to all conference participants. Conference wristbands are required for entry into all Service Palooza events. Find out more about this exciting new event by following the link.
