Traditions play a unique role in the culture of our organization by evoking a sense of pride among our members and serve as a way of connecting our current student members with our alumni after graduation.
Not only are traditions the things we hold most dear and that resonate the loudest within an organization, but traditions foster a great sense of community and offer excellent opportunities for new members to become involved and be included.
The traditions of Business Professionals of America can teach not only our members, but those outside of the organization about our history and serve as a means for building community, instilling common values that span generations, and generate pride and enthusiasm.
We invite you to share in these traditions and all the positive contributions they have to offer.
Ambition. Leadership. Sociability. Poise.
The four points of the BPA shield stand for Ambition, Leadership, Sociability and Poise. The shield itself stands for honor and dignity and the importance of business in America. The stripes represent education, citizenship, loyalty, patriotism, competency and dependability. The bar represents the service provided by employees in business occupations. The quill and inkwell represent the stability of business occupations through the ages and the torch represents worthy goals.
We are met in a spirit of friendship and goodwill as we prepare for careers in a world-class workforce. We work together to develop professionalism and leadership through Business Professionals of America and pledge our loyalty to our nation.
