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:
- 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 breakfast and orientation. AM events are scheduled 8:00 AM-12:00 PM.
PM events begin at 12:00 PM with lunch and orientation. PM events are scheduled 1:00 PM-5:00 PM.
Judging at NLC is an exciting, rewarding opportunity to mentor truly outstanding young people and to offer students a realistic expectation of the business world.
