Each week the MSBC will conduct a Q&A with two current planning committee members to provide some background on the people working hard to make the 2014 conference a success. This week Freshman Jonah Folbe shares his experience of being on the 2014 MSBC team.
MSBC: Explain your role in the MSBC team and what you are currently doing in preparation for the MSBC 2014 conference.
Folbe: My role is treasurer for the conference. I handle all financial matters whether it be creating and maintaining the budget, or managing the conference’s bank accounts.
MSBC: What has been the best part of your role thus far?
Folbe: I’ve enjoyed getting to know the team and getting used to the process of working on the conference. Working on important phone calls and the budget have been my favorite parts.
MSBC: What is one goal you have for the 2014 MSBC?
Folbe: Help create such an amazing conference that we get a lot of public exposure, whether it be by paper or television. I think the conference can grow exponentially and that’s what I’d love to see.
MSBC: What is one panel you would like to see at the 2014 conference?
Folbe: Discussing the NCAA and paying their athletes. This topic will always be at the forefront of sports until something has changed. Everyday more lawsuits and actions are being taken against not receiving payment for player’s talent.
MSBC: What are your professional aspirations upon graduating from the University of Michigan?
Folbe: I would love to start in banking and end up in Venture Capital or Private Equity. Also, being CFO of a sports team would be pretty awesome.
