Why does FBLA-PBL not offer a program like the BAA's to advisers? One of the primary reasons for the Business Achievement Awards is to document and prove all the time and effort you have put into FBLA. So why do we not offer a similar series of awards for advisers who have been dedicated to the organization throughout the years, and have successfully lead students into the business world, or have helped them grow as individuals... more »
I think it would be better to move up the date for the NLCs a few days. . . away from the July 4 weekend. Sometimes, we come back on July 3 (if closing is on the 2nd), and that doesn't allow traveling for the 4th.
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 »
Currently, the Silent Auction takes place at the National Leadership Conference (NLC).
If you move the Silent Auction online, you'll open it up to more members, advisers and friends -- not just people that attend NLC.
Currently, FBLA Middle-Level conferences are held in conjunction with high school FBLA. However, maybe the National Office should hold a recruiting campaign to increase Middle-Level chapters, so that this can become a separate faction, much like PBL.
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 »
In order to get more people involved in the BAAs, during the month of February, a score board of chapters/states is posted comparing states with the most BAA awards completed, with a weighted scale of 1 for future to 4 for america, with the national FBLA organization rewarding a small prize or recognition to the state that comes in first- tenth on the leaderboard, with state doing such for chapters.
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.
After completing the BAA's last year, it was hard when I was finishing up the America level. I finished my work, handed it in and received a certificate for completing the BAA's. Then after a few months, I noticed my name was not up on the America Level BAA's. Therefore, my adviser and I went back onto my America level BAA and noticed that it was incomplete due to doing certain tasks wrong. If I was to never recheck... more »
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 »
Do we have one for FBLA? If not is it possible to get one for the NLC that would connect to the webpage were the top 15 placewinners are posted? Thanks for considering.
I would like to see pins with officers positions. Ex:
FBLA Local Chapter President, Vice President, Secretary, etc.,
Come out with new items in the FBLA MarketPlace. This can include FBLA rings (similar to class rings and FBLA necklaces (for the ladies). Start a Facebook Page and host a giveaway contest as well as put items on sale during Regionals or State Conferences.
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 »
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.
