How do I get into FBLA?

FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) is a national organization for high school and college students who are interested in pursuing a career in business. It provides students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills, network with other business professionals, and gain valuable work experience. If you’re interested in joining FBLA, here’s how to get started.

Step 1: Find an Adviser. Every FBLA Local Chapter is required to have an adviser. This person should be a business professional who is willing to mentor the students and help them with their projects. The adviser should also be familiar with the organization’s rules and regulations.

Step 2: Recruit Five Chapter Members & Create an Executive Board. Each FBLA Chapter is required to have a minimum of five members. The members should be committed to the organization and willing to participate in activities and events. Once the members are recruited, an executive board should be created. This board should include a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and reporter.

Step 3: Create Bylaws. Bylaws are a set of rules and regulations that govern the operations of the chapter. They should include the duties and responsibilities of the executive board, the roles of the members, and the procedures for holding meetings and electing officers.

Step 4: Create a Program of Work. A program of work is a plan of action that outlines the goals and objectives of the chapter. It should include activities and events that the chapter will participate in, as well as a timeline for completing those activities.

Step 5: Set Officer and General Meetings Dates/Agenda. Once the program of work is established, the executive board should set dates for officer and general meetings. The agenda for each meeting should be established in advance and include topics such as updates on current projects, discussion of upcoming events, and election of new officers.

By following these steps, you can easily get started with FBLA. Once the chapter is established, you can begin participating in activities and events, and start developing the skills and experience you need to succeed in the business world.
