Emanuel County Institute FBLA member and Chapter President, MacKayla Oglesby, was selected to serve as a Georgia FBLA Region 4 Officer for the 2017-2018 year. As part of the duties and responsibilities of being an officer, MacKayla was required to attend the Region Officer Academy (ROA) at Camp John Hope in Fort Valley, GA on July 15th and 16th. At this conference, she had the opportunity to network with other region officers in Georgia. The newly elected officer team members were given the opportunity to participate in many leadership activities while at ROA that helped to build leadership skills and team work between the region officers. Some of the activities included: learning how to publically speak effectively, engaged in ice breaker activities to be used in local meetings, and most importantly, how to properly lead and conduct the Region Leadership Conference that will be held at different locations across the state in January. We are excited about the upcoming year and know that MacKayla will represent our chapter with high standards as a Region 4 Officer!
