Brookwood High School FBLA at RLC

Last month, the Brookwood High School FBLA chapter attended the Region 11 South Leadership Conference at Collins Hill High School! This was an incredible event, and we are proud of all of our chapter members who took the initiative and challenge to compete in competitive events. We are especially overjoyed that so many of our competitors made it on stage and advanced to the State Leadership Conference in Atlanta! Our chapter also won 1st place in total overall membership in Region 11 South!

One of our chapter members, D’nai, says she competed at RLC in Job Interview this year because “I wanted to try something new and I wanted to enjoy my senior year in FBLA doing something that would be beneficial for my future.”

Another one of our chapter members, Josh, competed at RLC in Sports & Entertainment Management because “Last year, I competed in Sports & Entertainment Management at NLC during my first year in FBLA. This year, I wanted to give it another shot, to hopefully advance to NLC again and win big on stage.”

Meeting Tip of the Month #5

For this month’s Meeting Tip of the Month, we begin recommending that meetings be turned into miniature workshops for those who are competing.

Most chapters tend to have an afterschool meeting, so why not turn that afternoon meeting into a chance for members to get a taste on what they might experience at RLC that is right around the corner. You can easily host a workshop in which more experienced members help new members with whatever competition they may be competing in this year. This will be a great way to prompt members to take initiative and help prepare for the upcoming competitions.

Not only will the members still get there daily knowledge of what’s going on in their local chapter, but they get the chance to Build their Bridge-way into success at RLC!

High School RLC Skills Testing

Do you want to show off your skills and earn recognition for it? Well if that’s the case, then you’re in the right place. FBLA hosts Skills Testing Events where members are able to show off their outstanding talents.

The events are as following:

  • Computer Applications
  • Database Design & Applications
  • Spreadsheet Applications
  • Word Processing

These events will take place at an RLC School-site through November 27- December 6.

Good luck to all who choose to compete!
