It’s Time For Rally Roundup!

Round up your members for Fall Motivational Rally! Rally Roundup is from August 1 to September 30. Chapters who recruit the most members during Rally Roundup are eligible to win free conference registrations and official dress items! 

Fall Motivational Rally, held at the Georgia National Fairgrounds, is a great way to attract members to join your FBLA chapter and introduce new and potential members to FBLA. The first few months of school is a great time to recruit members by holding membership drives, interest meetings, and socials. Good luck as you recruit this year!

Official Dress Overview + Competitive Event Changes

FBLA Official Dress is needed in order to compete in all high school performance events at the Region Leadership Conference (RLC) and State Leadership Conference (SLC). Components of official dress include: navy blue blazer with FBLA patch, dress khaki skirt or slacks or a matching navy blue suit with the FBLA patch, white dress shirt, dress shoes (no boots, sandals, or tennis shoes), and the official blue FBLA necktie.

If a skirt is worn,  ensure it is no more than two inches above the knee. The FBLA patch should be sewn over the left chest pocket. We encourage your chapter to show their Georgia FBLA pride by adopting the official dress uniform of Georgia FBLA. 

Be sure to know your competitive event regulations and rubrics before competing. The following are important alterations to FBLA’s competitive events you’ll want to learn about:

  • The report length for Business Plan has been shortened to 15 pages.
  • Now, the top 20 from the RLC objective test for Future Business Leader will advance to SLC.
  • There has been a performance component added to Local Chapter Annual Business Report at SLC and NLC.
  • In Social Media Campaign, the RLC prejudged component has been replaced with a presentation to a panel of judges.
  • No more super teams are allowed in case study events (Banking & Financial Systems, Entrepreneurship, Global Business, Hospitality Management, Management Decision Making, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Network Design, Parliamentary Procedure, and Sports & Entertainment Management) at SLC or NLC. 

Bronze Level Service: Super Star | Activity 3: Count on FBLA-ML

“Volunteer 5 hours of community service. (Write a brief summary and take a selfie at the community service event).”

Give back to your school or community by volunteering your time whether that be by helping out at a community or school sponsored event or volunteering at your local animal rescue or soup kitchen. Bring a couple of friends and have them help out too!

Be sure to write a summary of your time volunteering in order to share what you did and what you learned from it. Snap a picture at the event to upload and share on social media! One of the core values of FBLA is service, and as an FBLA member, you should always do your best to give back to your community!
