[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] "Best Of" FBLA-PBL States!

We all know how awesome our own states are (FBLA and/or PBL) but we may not know how awesome other states are. Let's celebrate them with a little friendly competition (beyond the traditional Competitive Events program). The "Best Of" could recgonize the top state websites, PR material, innovative program, BAA participants, etc. This could be an yearly or once-every-two years type of program. A task force of local advisers, ...more »

Investments Objective Tests

With people now retiring later and later because of the lack of money, I believe a competitive event focusing on different types of investments could be a game changer for the "Future Business Leaders of America." The test can include investments vehicles from the lower risk bonds, money market accounts, and annuities, to the higher risk stocks, options, futures, and forex (Foreign Exchange). The way to grade the skills ...more »

Child Care Administration Competitive Event

As the competitive events program grows, our organization should consider implementing a Child Care Administration event, given the importance and size of the child care industry in today's society.

Public Relations Event

PBL needs a Public Relations event. I think it should be similar to the Analysis & Decision Making events or Integrated Marketing Campaign.

Competitive Event Limits

As of now, the competitive events have a limit at NLC of one chapter, and either a team or individual event. Often times at the State Leadership Conferences, people win/qualify in several events in each group, therefore forcing them to choose one event and possibly leave a team event that would also do well. Since many of these people are quite successful members, it is a shame to force them out of an event. For this ...more »

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.

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 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.

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.

Business Discussion Competition

I was watching CNN a few days ago when this struck me. With there being so many business issues, the idea of student paneling with other students evenly divided in opinions would be both interesting and promising. At region it would begin with an essay on three listed business issues or maybe just one. The essays are graded based on ideas, explaination, and persuasiveness. The placing pro essay and placing con essay ...more »
