2012 Club Supports Business Week

 
Our Club provided financial support, expertise and lots of volunteer labor that made Business Week 2012 a great success for the Omak and Okanogan High School juniors who participated.
 

Rotary's Four-Way Test forms the ethical core of what Juniors from Omak and Okanogan High Schools learn during Business Week. More than 150 students participated in the intensive five-day business course held at the Okanogan County Agriplex, March 5-9, where they learned how to manage a public corporation manufacturing digital media players in today's global economy. A computer simulation - BizSim - responded to the students' decisions each quarter: How much to produce; what price to charge; how much to invest in advertising, sales force and product development; and, whether to go international. Each of the thirteen teams of ten to twelve students designed a new product and issued stock to continue their companies' success.

 "There is absolutely nothing comparable to the intensive educational and team-building experience enjoyed by the participating students," said Charlie Arvidson, who along with Greg Hamilton, has been organizing Business Week for the last twelve years.

"After all, these are our future business leaders'" he added.

Rotarians Charlie Arvidson, Greg Hamilton and Bob Goodwin were Company Advisors for the week; Ralph Malone, Lynn Hoover, Angie Hawley and Cindy Gagne joined others to judge the marketing presentations on Thursday; Nancy Nash, Angie Hawley and Jim Garrison judged the stockholder presentations on Friday. Okanogan-Omak Rotary Club underwrote some of the program costs and sponsored a student team. Charlie and Greg did much of the heavy lifting prior to the event, working with the the participating schools, getting Company Advisors, and organizing team sponsorships and funding from the local business community. Trish Butler and Yusuf Quidwal helped with fundraising and Rich Blakemore with daughter Rachel, and Jim Garrison helped set-up the teams' booths in the Agriplex.
