Training for our new advisers. My adviser had a hard time this year since she was new and should have received a training.
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.
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 »
Ok, so we all have been apart of our local club, changed by our advisers. How many of us have felt like we didn't have a place in our local chapter? A lot of chapters have this feeling. My idea is that we have different committees throughout the chapter. I know that we already have some of these but sometimes they don't make the difference we need. In these committees we will have; President of the Committee, Vice ...more »
While FBLA has mobile applications for both iOS and Android devices, the Android app hasn't been updated in years and doesn't load most of the time. During this period, the iOS app has been continually updated and maintained. Lets show the Android app the same attention that the iOS app has.
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 »
PBL Chapters, I suggest that local chapters set up a Scholaship Fund of at least $500 per year to at least one student from one of the local FBLA chapters. This will help grow our communities, our chapters, and our members. I would advise finding a sponsor to fund the scholarship, many schools and businesses would possibly be very interested in growing their public image as well. I plan to take this into full effect once ...more »
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.
As I was working on the Chapter Business Report, I needed to get information from many sources. Though, it was hard trying to contact the people I need to contact. Email is a hassle, the different screen names, the different domains, which email address is personal, which email is professional, and the list goes on. So, I propose we create @FBLA.org email addresses. This will be for business only, and will be transferable ...more »
Develop local micro-businesses for teens with autism. (85% adults with autism are unemployed. Work with teens in your community to determine what they CAN do. Then develop product or business based on current skill set. Create market (teacher's gifts, etc.).
Similar student organizations have already gone international (I.e. DECA). If FBLA is the largest student organization in the world without being international imagine the possabilities by expanding to other countries.
I want to take the idea of the NLC Photo Booth and make it more readily available to chapters and states the idea is to make it more streamlined so that is easily doable without all the extra equipment. Each state or chapter would be able to connect their Facebook account and have the photos automatically upload to their page. They would also be able to select their logo and the colors for the text.
