Congratulations to members of Business Professionals of America (BPA) who represented College of Western Idaho at the 2021 Virtual National Leadership Conference. The team of five students spent two weeks attending the virtual conference which included presentations, seminars, meetings, and competition bringing home several awards including 12 top-ten medals, two first-place plaques, one second-place plaque, and two third-place plaques.

“While they did not get to travel to Orlando due to the National Business Professionals of America’s decision to hold the conference virtually, our students still had opportunities they might never have been able to experience without their participation in Business Professionals of America,” said BPA Club Advisor and Professor of CyberSecurity, Linda Otto. “They were able to participate in multiple service projects, accept leadership within the local chapter, and compete at a high level against a group of national competitors.”
