PREVIEW
FBLA-PBL
Watch Party
Gathering in person is a highlight of the FBLA-PBL experience. When
large scale events are off the table and social distancing guidelines
are in full effect, it's time to get creative. For the May-Port CG FBLA
Chapter in Mayville, ND, that meant bringing the ND FBLA SLC to the
big screen. David Torgeson, one of the advisers for the chapter also
happens to be a local business owner. Not just any local business
owner, Torgeson owns a local movie theatre. Together with his
assistant adviser, Cindy Strand, Torgeson created a fun watch party!
Learn more about how they achieved this hybrid element to the
conference experience as you consider how you will experience the
2021 National Leadership Conference. Note: state and local guidelines
vary across the country. Please be sure to follow your state and/or local
social distancing and mask requirements if your chapter explores ways
to gather in-person.
Tell us about the theatre and how
being a business owner helps you as an
adviser to future business leaders?
I have always wanted to own a movie
theater and in 2013 the opportunity
became available so my wife and I decided
to go for it. This is my personal business
but, in a way, this theater and dream
of mine would not have been a reality
without FBLA for many reasons. First, I had
to compose a business plan which I did
in my own high school years in FBLA. This
foundation gave me some insight and
some experience with writing one. Also,
my students helped me with almost every
facet in getting the theater up and running
following our acquisition. From painting to
moving equipment out and just anything
in general I needed, my students came in
on weekends and helped out. Essentially
this business would not be a reality without
FBLA. Being a small business owner helps
in being an adviser too. Being able to offer
real life advice to our members is truly
remarkable and meaningful. It also gives
the students opportunities to ask questions
