FBLA National Conference
The FBLA National Leadership Conference happens twice a year, all around the USA. The FBLA National Conference is an opportunity for students to network, learn and compete against each other in various career-related events.
Wall Street Walks is a proud sponsor of FBLA. Join Wall Street Walks founder Annaline Dinkelmann at both the Buffalo, New York and St. Louis, Missouri November 2017 National Conferences. Annaline will be speaking about how Wall Street works, as well as the role of technology in the financial workforce.
Wall Street Walks will also have an exhibit table at the conference. Please stop by to say hello and meet us.
How Does Wall Street Walks Benefit FBLA Students?
As an official FBLA sponsor, Wall Street Walks is actively assisting in the advancement of the Mission of the FBLA-PBL organization. But we also offer a Wall Street tour that benefits students in all divisions of the FBLA program, from middle school through college. Many FBLA students are aiming to work on Wall Street, or in the financial sector. Students on our Wall Street tours get a front row seat to observe the financial sector workers in person, where they work.
On our tours, FBLA students will learn about the history of trading, the way the markets work, the function of the banks, and much more. This information is invaluable as the FBLA students begin to figure out exactly what careers they’d like to pursue.
• Our Wall Street tour compliments the learning tracks of the FBLA program.
• Our tour is a great incentive to promote your FBLA program.
• Our tour compliments the work students do for the competitive events.
• Many of the FBLA competitive topics are Wall Street related.
We work closely with the Museum of American Finance, 911 Museum, One World Observatory and the Statue of Liberty and many other Lower Manhattan organisations to create full day or half day programs.
