Rally is just around the corner, so now is a great time to start preparing for our Rally competitions.

All guidelines and rubrics are posted on the Adviser Livebinder. Take advantage of these events to win Georgia FBLA Bucks.

The 2019 National Leadership Conference will be here before we know it! This year’s NLC will be held in San Antonio, Texas from June 29 – July 2. It is the perfect opportunity to compete at the national level, attend world class workshops, and network with members from across the country.
The city of San Antonio has offerings for everyone. From a stroll down the famous River Walk, to visiting historic sites, to even Sea World, San Antonio can entertain every group. Consider visiting the legendary Alamo Mission for exciting history, or Six Flags San Antonio for some thrilling rides. No matter what you like, San Antonio has something for you.
Although NLC will be here sooner than we think, there is still time to qualify! If you place in the top 4 in most events (see Chapter Planning Guide for more information), you will advance to NLC. In San Antonio, you will be able to compete with other FBLA members from across the United States, and even make it to the national stage. Last year GA FBLA had 97 top ten finishes, and we hope to continue growing this year!
We wish you the best of luck in all of your FBLA activities and endeavors and hope to see you soon at our State Leadership Conference!
