The success of FBLA rests on the shoulders of student members. However, without the guidance of the local chapter adviser(s), no success would be possible. The adviser is instrumental in organizing and stimulating chapter development. They gain the support of the school administration and the community.
Follow these steps to start a chapter at your school:
1. Request a Chapter Organization Packet. Fill out a short form to get the process started. This packet will give you more information about the process of starting a chapter and will allow us to contact you to offer assistance.
2. Recruit members and officers. Hold a meeting at your school to inform your classmates about FBLA. Explain the benefits and your plans for the year. Be sure to bring a sign-up sheet for those interested in joining.
3. Collect dues and register your chapter. Follow the instructions in your Chapter Organization Packet to register your chapter online. You will need to collect dues and submit them to the FBLA National Office.
