        Business Professionals of America is pleased to announce its upcoming National Leadership Conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, Orlando, Florida, May 10-14, 2017.

        Business Professionals of America (BPA) is a student organization whose purpose is to support middle level, high school, and college students interested in business careers. Each year, students compete at regional and state levels to demonstrate their skills in over sixty different business areas. The winners of the state contests are invited to the National Leadership Conference, where a number of the contest events are judged by local business leaders to impart a “real world” experience to the students.

        Over 300 experienced professionals are needed to judge in the following business areas:

        • Finance
        • Business Administration
        • Management Information Systems
        • Digital Communication & Design
        • Management, Marketing and Communication

        Judging opportunities are available  on Thursday, May 11, Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13. Volunteers are needed for one or more five-hour time slots.

        AM events begin at 7:00 AM with a breakfast and orientation. AM events are scheduled 8:00 AM-12:00 PM.

        PM events begin at 12:00 PM with a lunch and orientation. PM events are scheduled 1:00 PM-5:00 PM.
