Business Achievement Awards

NLC Awards

We would like to see the NLC Business Achievement Awards (BAA) recipients recognized for each Region.

 

We would also like to see the Go Green Project Award winners recognized. Neither of these were recognized in the Summer 2014 Tomorrow's Business Leader.

Competitive Events

[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] "Best Of" FBLA-PBL States!

We all know how awesome our own states are (FBLA and/or PBL) but we may not know how awesome other states are. Let's celebrate them with a little friendly competition (beyond the traditional Competitive Events program). The "Best Of" could recgonize the top state websites, PR material, innovative program, BAA participants, etc. This could be an yearly or once-every-two years type of program. A task force of local advisers, ...more »

Membership

Email Blast List

Hi!

 

I was wondering if its possible to make the field of email addresses when we sign up members a mandatory field. Not only will ALL the members be informed as the President and Regional VPs send their email blast, but State Presidents could also have access to them so that ALL the members are more informed about whats happening around in the state and national level!

[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] National Officer Video Announcements

A lot of our State Leadership Conferences have National Officers present at them...but a lot don't unfortunately! I believe that if the National Officers create brief videos as an update for our national programs for State Leadership Conferences they are unable to attend, we'd be able to foster a better sense of communication with our local chapters.

[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] New Tab for Community Service

On the website, I fail to see a tab for community service projects, they're hidden away under some other tab, it would be nice to have a tab for that, a one stop shop for all FBLA Community service Projects.

Conferences

Peer networking groups at conferences

Sure, you might run into people from your same competitive event at NLC, but how can you network with other delegates, professional division members, and others that are interested in the same field as you? I suggest holding peer networking sessions at conferences focusing on specific career clusters (Management, IT, etc) and social issues (diversity, lgbtq, etc) where delegates can learn from experts in the area and ...more »

Allow Advisers to get a FBLA.org subdomain for chapter website.

We should let advisers set up a subdomain (schoolname.fbla.org) that redirects to the chapters website. That way it is up to the chapter to create their own website where they see fit, but they don't have to buy a domain name.

Business Achievement Awards

Adviser BAA's

Why does FBLA-PBL not offer a program like the BAA's to advisers? One of the primary reasons for the Business Achievement Awards is to document and prove all the time and effort you have put into FBLA. So why do we not offer a similar series of awards for advisers who have been dedicated to the organization throughout the years, and have successfully lead students into the business world, or have helped them grow as individuals ...more »

resource database

It would be awesome if there was a centralized location (web site/database) where chapters could post and share their projects. Advisers and members could go here for inspiration and ideas for recruitment, fundraising, service learning, and so forth. For it to be REALLY helpful, it should be searchable by fields like project type, chapter size, cost, time involved (easy to hard). I think this would be very beneficial ...more »

Diverse National Staff

I noticed a job description posted on the national website. While some experience is probably necessary and great, I think that the national office needs some new ideas coming from younger employees, since it really serves the youth. How about looking closely at a former PBL member, who is enthusiastic about FBLA. They might bring a more youthful perspective to market the organization better. BPA and DECA have a diverse ...more »

Student Advisors

I think that we should create a new possition at the chapter and state levels for a student advisor. They would have to be a three or four year member of FBLA-PBL and be interested in acting as an assistant to the professional advisor and helping officers and members much like the profesional advisor does now. They could use their experience as a student member to help other members with problems that are unique to the ...more »
