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 »

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 »

Monopoly Tournament as an Act of Unification through Competition

A favorite game to play ever since I could understand the sense of winning and strategy was Monopoly, the long, aggressive game that many people in business come to love. Discussed about by numerous people before, I came across a discussion by Julianna Nadel (@julianna.nadel) to implement a competitive Monopoly Tournament into various events, such as the National Leadership Conference. As Area 4 Vice President for Texas ...more »

Puerto Rico State Chapter (PLEASE READ THIS!!!)

I am a freshman (High School in PR starts in 10th grade) belonging to the Comercial Education Program of my school. FBLA is technically dead in my school. Most students in the Program don't even know what it is. And the teacher in charge doesn't orientate. I started investigating about the organization on my own and was suprised about the things the organization offers. I was kinda suprised to see PR in the chapter ...more »

Website - Spanish Version

As FBLA grows larger and larger, our association has reached out to many individuals in this country and others. Developing a Spanish version of the website may help others that are not as familiar with English. Creating a tab at the top to set the website to different languages would broaden participation.

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.

Photo Booth Program

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.

Opening Session Speaker

I just watched a video from the opening session in 2007. What happened!?!? I don't want to down any other speakers that FBLA may have, but this is the type of entertainment that our students want. Yes I do enjoy my share of real business people and inspirational stories, but why not have that mixed in with...well some of this. If this isn't enough business for you, there are enough workshops for anyone. See video below: ...more »

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 »
