Annual Student Interns

There are many student members in FBLA-PBL who's talents go underepresented. FBLA-PBL should implement a student internship program throughout the various departments of FBLA-PBL. A lot of the times students know what they want. They just have no experience behind what they want to do. Students bring fresh perspective to different actions. FBLA-PBL should have annual internship positions offered for the year to expand ...more »

Website - Spanish Version

As FBLA grows larger and larger, our association has reached out to many individuals in this country and others. Developing a Spanish version of the website may help others that are not as familiar with English. Creating a tab at the top to set the website to different languages would broaden participation.

Update the FBLA-PBL Android App

While FBLA has mobile applications for both iOS and Android devices, the Android app hasn't been updated in years and doesn't load most of the time. During this period, the iOS app has been continually updated and maintained. Lets show the Android app the same attention that the iOS app has.

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 »

Diverse National Staff

I noticed a job description posted on the national website. While some experience is probably necessary and great, I think that the national office needs some new ideas coming from younger employees, since it really serves the youth. How about looking closely at a former PBL member, who is enthusiastic about FBLA. They might bring a more youthful perspective to market the organization better. BPA and DECA have a diverse ...more »

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.

A More Centralized Website

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 »

Sponsorship Fund

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 »
