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.
