          HALL OF FAME

          MR. JAMES ZIMMER

          James Zimmer has contributed to Business Professionals of America (BPA) both literally and intrinsically.

          Since his involvement with our organization as a student member in the early 80’s, Mr. Zimmer has shown great passion and dedication for the success and growth of BPA. He began his BPA career in OEA as a competing student member in State and National Leadership Conferences. In addition to his love for competitive events, Jameshasalso received one of the organizations highest honors, the Merit Scholar.

          He is instrumental to the success of the Wisconsin BPA State Association and Alumni Division. Mr.Zimmer has attended every State Leadership Conference since 1984, not missing one date. He helps set up the state awards ceremony and personally transports all of the plaques and medals to the conference site. Additionally, James authored the first Wisconsin Association State Merit Scholar test, which he maintains and updates on a yearly basis. He has consistently helped with the state officers since 1984 to teach them about BPA, what it means to be an officer, and how to follow parliamentarian procedures during meetings.

          Mr. Zimmer has been an active BPA alumnus since 1984, serving on several committees and as the Wisconsin Association's Alumni President.

          James has attended all but two National Leadership Conferences since 1984 and has volunteered at all attended conferences in the areas of judging, proctoring, and test administration. Mr. Zimmer has never asked anyone for any reimbursement of any sort for any expense since 1984; all he has done is out of his own money and the time spent is vacation earned from his workplace. Most of all, he is one of the most kind-hearted people you will know, dedicating his time to BPA always.
