Investments Objective Tests

With people now retiring later and later because of the lack of money, I believe a competitive event focusing on different types of investments could be a game changer for the "Future Business Leaders of America." The test can include investments vehicles from the lower risk bonds, money market accounts, and annuities, to the higher risk stocks, options, futures, and forex (Foreign Exchange). The way to grade the skills ...more »

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.

FBLA-PBL Storyboard

Every member of FBLA-PBL has a story. Members, Advisers, and many more use these stories as inspirational tools to push their students to do better. We should have a spot somewhere for people to write in about their story and how FBLA-PBL has helped them. These stories can also be used in recruitment tools and chapter activation tools. Boards love stories that hit close to home.

NLC Voting Reform

The voting process at the NLC is terrible (at least in the regional sessions). Voting in the "real world" does not consist of waiting for everyone else to show up.

This issue at the NLC ...more »

A More Centralized Website

In the cyber world we live FBLA should seek to provide members an more organized and centralized website. My suggestion would be a website similar to HOSA's which allows membership affiliation, competition affiliation, regional, state and national conference registration all on the same website while extending its services to provide online competition testing on its website. Maybe National FBLA could contact National ...more »

Website Design/Development Event Reform

The Website Design competition currently allows teams to use a template instead of building a site from scratch. This competition was formerly named "Website Development", meaning that one must build their site from scratch. Filling in a template does not represent adequate knowledge of website development code, and someone who does this should not be considered over someone who worked 50+ hours building a website from ...more »
