BAA Activity of the Week #4

Hey there, Georgia FBLA! The featured BAA activity of this week is part of the Business award:

Activity 8 Communications/ Service Learning
Participate in a literacy project i.e. visit a kindergarten classroom and read a book, tutor in an after-school reading program, or help plan a chapter book drive.

Plan a date where you can visit a local elementary school to complete this task. The listed projects are good examples, but get creative with it!  Be sure to get clearance from your own school before visiting the school.

BAA Activity of the Week #3

Future Activity 22 is the featured BAA Activity of the Week:

Future Activity 22 Communications/FBLA Organization and National Programs

Recite the FBLA Creed at a chapter meeting or event and explain your understanding of this creed as it relates to your future and to the business world in a memo to your local chapter adviser.

The FBLA creed is available to you on the FBLA website and your, or your adviser’s, Chapter Planning Guide. Think of how the Creed lays out a foundation for how you can use FBLA to bring business and education together to prepare the members for a bright future.

Continue working hard on the BAAs!

BAA Activity of the Week #2

This week’s featured BAA Activity is Future Award 17:

Future Activity 17 Communications/FBLA Organization and National Programs Required.

Bring a friend who is a nonmember to a local chapter FBLA meeting.

One of the best methods to show your friends what FBLA is all about is to invite them to a meeting. This gives them the chance to get an idea of what the organization has in store for them, and allows them to develop goals for what they want to achieve in FBLA.

Good luck with your completion of the Future Award!

Getting Started With the BAAs

Hello, Georgia FBLA! The State Officer team hopes you enjoyed your summer and are ready to elevate your success this year in FBLA!

One particular activity that FBLA members can complete is the Business Achievement Award (BAA). There are four levels, as follows; Future, Business, Leader, and America. Each level of the BAA has more tasks to complete, and requires more time and effort to finish. Taking a look at the list of tasks is daunting at first, so we recommend to focus on only one level at a time. To begin, just head to the BAA web page and use the login info that you adviser has given you to begin. After choosing your tasks, complete those along with the required tasks. As you complete them, you will receive pins and certificates from Georgia FBLA. The State Officer blog will feature weekly BAA Activities with tips on how to complete them.

Following the completion of the America level, you can receive credit onstage at the NLC next summer in Baltimore. We hope to see many bright future business leaders from Georgia there next year! Good luck on your BAAs!

BAA Activity of the Week #1

Hey Georgia FBLA! This is the first article of many to come featuring specific activities to the Business Achievement Awards, with some tips along with the criteria! This week’s featured BAA activity is the Future Activity 11:

Future Activity 11: Accounting

Using a spreadsheet, create a one-month budget for yourself or for your local chapter.

Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets are useful programs when creating well-organized spreadsheets. Determine the monthly starting balance, any payments or purchases, and your final balance by the end of the month. As noted, you may choose to base the plan on your own budget or your local FBLA chapter’s budget. Good luck as you work to complete the BAAs!
