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 »

Go World Wide

Similar student organizations have already gone international (I.e. DECA). If FBLA is the largest student organization in the world without being international imagine the possabilities by expanding to other countries.

Allow Advisers to get a FBLA.org subdomain for chapter website.

We should let advisers set up a subdomain (schoolname.fbla.org) that redirects to the chapters website. That way it is up to the chapter to create their own website where they see fit, but they don't have to buy a domain name.

PBL name

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.

FBLA Business Co-op Program with Cooperating Businesses

This club is for FUTURE business leaders, right? Most of the members are high schoolers who are interested in a business-related occupation. FBLA has many sponsors. So, what if FBLA can team up with their business sponsors to provide summer internship/job-shadowing for their FBLA members so they can overlook the careers they might want to pursue. That way, FBLA members can have some experience in the career before college, ...more »

[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] New Tab for Community Service

On the website, I fail to see a tab for community service projects, they're hidden away under some other tab, it would be nice to have a tab for that, a one stop shop for all FBLA Community service Projects.

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 »

FBLA Mobile Website

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.

Update the FBLA-PBL Website

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 »

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.
