On August 23, Shiloh FBLA hosted their first meeting for the 2017-2018 school year. There were 57 students in attendance. We started with an interesting icebreaker called Hula Hoop Connect. At the start of this activity, all students were divided into 2 groups where each group was joined together hand and foot. The goal of this icebreaker was to get everyone through the hula hoop without separating or talking. This leadership activity showed how effective non-verbal communication and teamwork are. After the icebreaker, we discussed membership dues and important dates such as Motivational Rally, Fall Leadership and other conferences. We also spoke about upcoming fundraisers such as selling ice cream during lunch and offering delicious Chick-fil-A biscuits for breakfast. For new members, officers explained our point system and meeting procedures. Our first meeting of the year was eventful, informative, and fun. We can’t wait for the other activities that we have planned for this school year.
