National Monopoly Tournament

In Georgia FBLA there is a monopoly tournament that concludes at the state level. I believe by taking the winning team from each state there could be a massive game of monopoly played at nationals to see who is the best in the nation. I believe this will give students the opportunity to learn more related to money and making successful deals, but would also be a fun event at nationals!

Business Achievement Awards

BAA Shipments

Last fiscal year I completed all of the BAA and CSA, but due to the fact that I was out of the country during the NLC I haven't been able to receive the awards. After my advisor trying to figure out what to do its been two months and we can't figure out what to do. Maybe after completion and approval of the programs there should be an option just to have the awards shipped instead of traveling to the NLC to receive them. ...more »

This issue at the NLC ...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 »

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.

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 »
