Mallory Bailey is president of the Oregon Future Business Leaders of America

Baker High School senior Mallory Bailey, state president, will lead nearly 1,500 student leaders when they gather in Portland this week for the 2010 Oregon Future Business Leaders of America state conference.

Students will compete in more than 60 business-focused contests during the conference, which begins today at the Doubletree Lloyd Center and Oregon Convention Center. During the three-day conference, students also will  hear from keynote speakers, support the March of Dimes, FBLA’s national service partner, attend leadership and career-focused workshops and elect a new team of state leaders.

Top contest finishers will advance to the national Leadership Conference at Nashville, Tenn., this summer.

“The State Business Leadership Conference is an amazing opportunity for students,” Bailey said in a press release. “I left my first SBLC a better leader and excited for school and community service.

“I’m looking forward to the 2010 Business Leadership Conference,” she said. “It’s going to be simply the best.”

Oregon FBLA will be celebrating its 60th anniversary at the conference. Included as part of the special celebration is a Thursday reception for past alumni and current leaders and a video tribute to Oregon FBLA through the past 60 years.

Here is a schedule of conference highlights:

• Wednesday — Opening general session: 8:15 p.m. to 11:15 p.m., Oregon Convention Center.

• Thursday — Business & Friends Reception: 5:45 p.m. at the Doubletree Lloyd Center Holladay Room.
