The Irvington FBLA Minicon is exclusive to members from Irvington FBLA only and those invited from other schools. At this conference, students will compete in mock tests, practice role-plays, engage in workshops, and get a glimpse of how a real conference is like. Mini-con helps new members develop FBLA spirit and adapt to the FBLA conference environment. The purpose of this conference is not to win awards, but to help members learn more about competitive events in the FBLA organization and prepare them for the regional and state conferences in the latter half of the year. More information regarding the 2018 Minicon is coming soon!
