Are your officers not sure of duties they can perform? Are advisers overworked and wishing their officers and leaders were taking a greater role in chapter planning? Ever wish that your officers were ready to “hit the ground running” at the beginning of the school year? Summer Leadership & Officer Training Summits (SLOTS) may be the answer! After successful programs the past ELEVEN years, Georgia FBLA is offering four separate officer training sessions across the state July 17-20. Each session is meant to prepare local chapter officers and other leaders for duties and roles. In addition, chapter officers will work with advisers to develop or refine the program of work and plan chapter strategy for the year. Not only do we want to train officers and leaders for specific duties but we also want to develop a stronger officer team through strategic chapter planning. Finally, learn what other chapters are doing through our share time such as one-minute success stories, best practices, etc.
While the training sessions are designed primarily for local chapter officers, we recognize some chapters may not have selected officers yet or chapters may have other leaders who might not be officers but can benefit from the training. We encourage you to send these members, who you view as potential leaders for your chapter, whether they will be officers or not.
Because there is a large emphasis placed on the chapter planning area, this program is designed more for a team of officers rather than a single individual officer. We encourage your chapter to send all of its officers and leaders rather than just one or two.
Advisers should plan to participate in the SLOTS program as well. A special session will be held for advisers to help navigate them through the coming year. Additionally, adviser participation is important during the Chapter Program of Work/Strategic Planning Session.
