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. Voting in the real world is electronic, provided by kiosks. A majority always shows up on Election Day because it is widely known about and does not have a two-hour session of waiting for everyone to show up and all votes to be counted. This issue at the NLC ...more »

Competitive Events

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 »

Competitive Events

Revised Entrepreneurship Competitive Event

FBLA should take the entrepreneurship competitive event and turn it into to separate events, one for the start-up type companies we're seeing today, and another for small businesses. I competed through nationals and felt that it focused too much on traditional entrepreneurship such as franchising and starting a physical store.

Competitive Events - Administrative Support Career Pathway

Stock Market Event

Many students play a stock market game in their HS business classes, and it is quite popular. The current stock market game would get more attention if you didn't have to pay for it and if it were an actual competitive event. Make this a competitive event, and it would probably be quite popular.

Competitive Events Handbook

The competitive events handbook was re-designed this year and its looks great. While the charts are very handy, the book is confusing to follow. Go back to a 1-page description of an event, and keep the summary chart info at the beginning. It is nice to look at one page for each event that has the complete info.

NFLC--better workshops!

A lot of money is spent for chapters to travel to the NFLCs. While the keynote Josh Shipp was awesome, the workshops were full of speakers who were just selling stuff and imparting information that most teachers could give you in school. Perhaps an integrated approach might be better, by hiring a company to produce the workshops at the NFLCs, just like the IFL. Speakers can also sign up to speak as well just like the ...more »
