Chapter Instagram Takeover

New This Year: Georgia FBLA Instagram Chapter Takeover

Wufoo Submission Form: https://georgiafbla.wufoo.com/forms/instagram-takeover/

Georgia FBLA is seeking advisers and chapters to “take over” the Georgia FBLA Instagram account for one week at a time, posting photos of their classroom happenings and chapter activities. This will allow members across the state and nation can see how our Georgia FBLA chapters are SHINING this year!

Once your application is submitted, you will receive an email with further instructions.

In the meantime be sure to follow Georgia FBLA on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and Twitter @GeorgiaFBLA.

Social Activity of the Month

A great social activity for the month of April is a chapter SLC celebration party! This could be an event getting your members excited to attend the 2017 State Leadership Conference in Athens, GA! Or you could have your celebration after SLC congratulating all of your attendees and competitive event winners.

Having a party is a great way to help your members get excited about SLC or relive the excitement of SLC. Either one will be a great opportunity for your chapter to bond in the final months left of the school year.

Be sure to post your social activities on social media using #GAFBLA so that way the entire state can see how much fun your chapter is having.

Meeting Tip of the Month

March is such a busy month for FBLA chapter’s across the state. SLC is right around the corner and your members are preparing for their competitive events, but you have to also have a chapter meeting…

During the month of March have a competition seminar during your chapter meeting. Bring in some donuts and have your members practice their presentations to help them get ready to SHINE at SLC. You could also have some members that have competed at SLC offer some advice and testimonials of the experience.

Make sure you post pictures of your SLC competition seminar on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook using #GAFBLA and #GAFBLASLC.

Recruiting Members for Next Year

April 1st is the deadline for chapters to be recognized for their membership efforts at NLC, but recruiting members doesn’t stop there. It should be your goal to have your chapter’s membership increased by the end of the school year, but if not you can start TODAY working to push your membership levels to shining new heights next year.

Now is the time when many students will be thinking about their classes for next year and a Business, Finance, or Computer Science course should be on their list! Be sure to start promoting your pathways and FBLA chapter around your school so prospective members can start getting an idea of what this thing called FBLA means. Students speaking directly to other students is a great way to help spread the word about FBLA. Over the summer have an FBLA booth at your school’s open house with application ready for members to sign up.

 

These are just a couple tips on how to get a kick start on your membership recruitment for next year. Be sure to post tips and pictures of how your chapter is recruiting members on social media using #GAFBLA.
