Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) held interviews for its future cabinet from May 6 to 10.
The interviews, conducted by co-presidents senior Katie Kyan and senior Melanie Wu, took place during break and lunch in FBLA advisor Christina Rouw’s room. The cabinet positions available included president, co-president, vice president of projects, secretary, public relations and more.
According to Kyan, having well-qualified and dependable officers is crucial to chapter growth.
“I think next year we can plan a calendar for the members, because this year it was kind of hectic with all the unsprung dates,” Kyan said. “Also, the new cabinet should be able to make new ideas and get new people to be a part of the club.”
Vying for the position of secretary is member freshman Justin Huh, who is excited for the future of FBLA and its reach on the campus.
“When I first joined FBLA, I realized that I had found a club that I really enjoyed,” Huh said. “I noticed that FBLA is one of the smaller clubs around the school, and I hope to spread awareness [about] this club because I feel that there is strength in numbers.”
Additionally, Rouw looks forward to a cabinet filled with new possibilities but stresses the importance of leadership.
“To make a strong cabinet, we need self-motivated people who are willing to take personal initiative,” Rouw said. “If we want to succeed as a program in this campus, we need more communication and personal initiative from our members.”
In the time being, FBLA will be considering its new cabinet.
