[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] FBLA NLC Preferred Seating

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.

Annual Student Interns

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 »

Business Discussion Competition

I was watching CNN a few days ago when this struck me. With there being so many business issues, the idea of student paneling with other students evenly divided in opinions would be both interesting and promising. At region it would begin with an essay on three listed business issues or maybe just one. The essays are graded based on ideas, explaination, and persuasiveness. The placing pro essay and placing con essay ...more »

After completing the BAA's last year, it was hard when I was finishing up the America level. I finished my work, handed it in and received a certificate for completing the BAA's. Then after a few months, I noticed my name was not up on the America Level BAA's.

Student manager for BAAs

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.

[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] Shortened Membership Recruitment Video

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.

This will allow our chapters to better advertise and recruit new members by being able to choose between videos to suit their needs!
