    If you are currently taking a business/computer class or will be taking one this year or have completed one business class in the past then you have an opportunity to join Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), the largest business career student organization in the world. FBLA helps prepare students for careers in business and business-related fields. Throughout the year students can participate in a broad range of activities that are engaging and fun. FBLA members also participate in many drives throughout the year as a part of our commitment to our community.

    To prepare students for the business world FBLA hosts numerous competitions and leadership conferences for our members.

    In the Fall our FBLA region hosts a leadership summit for students to learn about leadership skills and professionalism.

    In the Winter students compete at the Regional Leadership Conference. Some of the events at the Regional Leadership Conference are: business calculations, business communications, business methods, business procedures, computer applications, job interview and public speaking. This event is a one day event.

    In the Spring students can compete at the State Leadership Conference held in Greensboro for three days. Some of the events at this conference are: banking and financial systems, business computing technology, business law, business plan, business presentation, computer game and simulation design, desktop publishing, digital video production, e-business, economics, entrepreneurship, impromptu speaking, parliamentary procedure, marketing, networking concepts, and website development to name a few.

    If students win at the State Leadership Conference they can then attend our National Competition. In the past few years I have taken students to Atlanta, Nashville, Orlando, Chicago, Baltimore, Anaheim and San Antonio to compete.

    At each of these conferences members have the opportunity to not only compete but attend workshops and seminars to foster the development of business, leadership, and character traits.

    If you have any questions about FBLA feel free to contact Kurt Garner in room 602. If you are interested in joining FBLA, membership dues are $25.00. Dues must be turned in to Mr. Garner by September 27th for the Fall Deadline and January 15th for the Spring Deadline. We are looking forward to another successful year with our FBLA members.
