When attending the conferences and competing, make sure that you are fully prepared. If you are taking a test, study and complete old tests, review notes and other resources on the event's topic and build your confidence that is necessary in order to do well. For speaking events, prepare thoroughly by practicing your speech or presentation in front of your business class and adviser, gather all materials and resources for the presentation or speech, and have a positive mindset before, during and after presenting. I know that you will prepare and be ready for your competitions this month, in March and at the 2016 National Leadership Conference!
Before the conferences, continue to recruit new members, complete service projects with the Shriner's Hospital Build-A-Bear and the March of Dimes, and schedule competition practices for your chapter. This has been a great year so far! Ignite Your Inner Hero, and make the end of this membership year even stronger! I hope to see you at the conferences!
