NLC awards

It is most likely have been said before, but why don't we have a way to watch the NCL awards and/or competitions. I understand that that may be considered as a privilege for placing for nationals, but it would help other grasp their subjects and leave them with fresh knowledge as to who they are competing against and what to expect.

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 »

Conferencia Simultánea

Que haya un día donde se le brinde al estudiantado conferencias conforme su especialidad y sea en conjunto con la organización hermana DECA. Luego se le otorgue una conferencia a todos los presentes sobre cómo fundamentar una empresa. Y al final confraternizar ente ambas organizaciones estudiantiles.

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!

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 »

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 »

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.
