        8/29/2017
        Contributed by Business Professionals of America

         

        Busness Professionals of America (BPA) has taken a bold step towards their organizational mission. To help contribute to the preparation of global professionals through the advancement of leadership, citizenship, academic, and technological skills, they have formally adopted a requirement to have all members in national leadership roles complete Social Assurity's educational, social media courseware.  Upon completion, BPA student leaders will receive a digital leadership certification. As an innovator in Career and Technical Education, BPA recognizes that student leaders, who are proficient in navigating social media, will realize significantly more career and academic opportunities. The digital leadership initiative and exclusive chapter license offering by Social Assurity for BPA members positions today’s students to be leaders and rise above potential candidates while emerging as well-educated, future-minded leaders prepared to succeed in a global workforce.

        "One of the many things about the Social Assurity e-courses that is so wonderful is that the courses are not only updated but relevant and timely," states Heather Bunning, BPA's Director of Strategic Advancement. "By taking these courses, our members show that they are versed, educated and understand the importance of being responsible with their digital identity."

        "As a forward-thinking student organization, BPA appreciates the role of digital leadership as an essential 21st-century skill and is arming their student leaders with pragmatic social media education necessary for a competitive edge for future college and career opportunities," says Jamie Finch, Social Assurity's Senior Vice President. "With an emphasis on education and professional development, providing Social Assurity's social media courseware for members will be a natural extension of the student organization's long-held beliefs."
