I think it would be a great idea for PBL chapters trying to recruit new members, instead of just saying Phi Beta Lambda, use FBLA-PBL so that you can get those members who were apart of FBLA and may not be real familiar with PBL. I have heard this works with many schools. We are a lifetime organization, why not promote it that way.
When I was at my districts last CTO and adviser meeting for FBLA..we talked about ways to get officers connected throughout.there district...and I thought Mixers or parties could really help this situation...and appeals to the teen mindset..whichcould get officers talking to their brother and sister schools on recruitment and much more because theyve gotten to know them at a fbla officer event.
I would like to see pins with officers positions. Ex:
FBLA Local Chapter President, Vice President, Secretary, etc.,
Comment with your ideas on what features the advisor portal [ https://ams.fbla-pbl.org/fbla/main/login.asp ] needs to help your chapter
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
update the fbla store
The current FBLA-PBL website provides the basic information about FBLA-PBL but does not do a good job of going beyond the basics. Many sections of the site are almost never updated and have outdated information. The website also doesn't market the experience and brand of FBLA-PBL while providing important and interesting information for members/advisers. The site needs to be redesigned to more adequately meet the needs... more »
the logo should be updated
A lot of our State Leadership Conferences have National Officers present at them...but a lot don't unfortunately! I believe that if the National Officers create brief videos as an update for our national programs for State Leadership Conferences they are unable to attend, we'd be able to foster a better sense of communication with our local chapters.
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 »
I have purchased the MyFBLA.com domain name and am looking for suggestions on what to possibly implement. I want this to be a resource for our current members to help with their Excellence in Action.
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.
