The month of February presents a multitude of opportunities for your chapter to connect with legislators. For instance, since February is national CTE (Career and Technology Education) month, your chapter has an outstanding platform to approach your representatives in favor for career and technology education. In fact, try writing a letter to your representatives or inviting them to speak at a meeting. Even better, join your state officers for CTSO day at the capitol, an opportunity to personally advocate for FBLA. CTSO day will be Thursday, February 21st at the Georgia Capitol Building in Atlanta.
The second week of February is also home to FBLA-PBL week. Many chapters seize this chance to gain publicity in their local communities. For example, your chapter’s volunteer service for Saturday’s “Community Service Day” could land you in a local newspaper. Even better, your chapter’s Spirit Day picture could become viral, using the hashtag, #FBLAPBLWeek. FBLA-PBL week offers countless opportunities to increase your chapter’s membership and relevance in your community.
