Chapter Chant Challenge
Our Chapter Challenge challenges chapters to create their own BPA theme chapter chant to help bring a wave of spirit to the State Leadership Conference. Chapters will record their chants and submit them prior to State. During the Opening Session/Business Meeting, the chapter chants will be played. The members will then have the opportunity to vote on the best chant during the Officer Elections. The chant with the most votes will go home with the NMBPA Spirit Stick!
