Currently, the host state receives priority seating at the National Leadership Conference.
What if we recognized the top 5 BAA "Fight to the Finish" states by offering them preferred seating at the NLC?
This would be piloted at the FBLA Opening General Session this year in Anaheim.
There are many student members in FBLA-PBL who's talents go underepresented. FBLA-PBL should implement a student internship program throughout the various departments of FBLA-PBL. A lot of the times students know what they want. They just have no experience behind what they want to do. Students bring fresh perspective to different actions. FBLA-PBL should have annual internship positions offered for the year to expand ...more »
What if FBLA-PBL opened up an internship to update and maintain the mobile FBLA-PBL website? This would open up opportunities for students to get more involved, gain experience, and possibly get a letter of reference.
Come out with new items in the FBLA MarketPlace. This can include FBLA rings (similar to class rings and FBLA necklaces (for the ladies). Start a Facebook Page and host a giveaway contest as well as put items on sale during Regionals or State Conferences.

Live stream the final competition rounds. We already record them, we live stream NLC awards ceremony. Streaming is decreasing in cost (may be zero).
Impossible??? FFA already does it!
FBLA advisors have many things on their plates, and it's sometimes hard for them to find time for special opportunities such as BAAs. I suggest that student managers be allowed in the BAA program, similar to the role they play in other award programs, such as super sweeps. Student managers should be able to register BAA participants and see progress, but approving the award should be left to the advisor.

Give chapters (local & state) a directory of Professional Division members in the area and encourage tapping in to the network for business expertise. Allow Professional Division members to create a profile that outlines expertise, experience and types of support that member is willing to give i.e. judge competitive events, mentor students with project, financial, etc.
I really like our current membership recruitment video. However, the length makes it hard to put on the school announcements and other school media outlets. What if we had two videos- one regular length video, and one abridged, thirty second video? This will allow our chapters to better advertise and recruit new members by being able to choose between videos to suit their needs!
