December Social Activity of the Month

Do you want to celebrate the holiday season with your chapter? Are you wondering about ways to unite your chapter one more time before the break? If so, then a Holiday Party is the perfect way to celebrate the spirit of the season while bringing your chapter together.

Although it isn’t always easy to energize your chapter, having a party where you all can relax and enjoy each other is a way you can spark engagement in your chapter for the future.  One activity that you can do during this event is to decorate gingerbread cookies. Officers can bring frosting and sprinkles to make this activity a festive success. Furthermore, you can make this into a competition where the best cookie decorator wins a prize! Another good idea is to set up a photo area with holiday signs and Santa hats where members can take pictures with their friends. It would also be fun to watch a holiday movie to allow your members the chance to unwind after a long semester.

Using this event as a way to do community service is a great way to give back in the holiday season. Members can be encouraged to bring a toy to donate to children in need in the holidays or your chapter can collect canned goods to donate to a local food shelter. Regardless, you will improve and strengthen the lives of others in your community through this collaborative community service effort.

We wish you the best of luck during your chapter’s social events throughout the school year. Don’t forget to hashtag all of your exciting social event posts with #GAFBLA so members all across the state can see the fun things your chapter is doing!

November Social Activity of the Month

November is here! Since Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, it is a good idea to have a Thanksgiving-related social event. A fun activity that your chapter can do is to host a Thanksgiving-related food decorating contest!

For example, your chapter can decorate pretzels to make them look like a turkey. With the help of candy corns, frosting, and chocolate,  your members can create some pretty delicious treats! In addition, it is also a good idea to celebrate the season by decorating other treats such as cupcakes, cookies, and brownies.

Getting your chapter together for a fun social is a great way to spark engagement in your chapter. It doesn’t take much for the members in your local chapter to relax and enjoy the holiday season together. Hosting an enjoyable social event can increase the overall motivation in your chapter––giving your members more excitement to participate in other FBLA events such as conferences and competition.

Social Activity of the Month

A great social activity for the month of April is a chapter SLC celebration party! This could be an event getting your members excited to attend the 2017 State Leadership Conference in Athens, GA! Or you could have your celebration after SLC congratulating all of your attendees and competitive event winners.

Having a party is a great way to help your members get excited about SLC or relive the excitement of SLC. Either one will be a great opportunity for your chapter to bond in the final months left of the school year.

Be sure to post your social activities on social media using #GAFBLA so that way the entire state can see how much fun your chapter is having.

Social Activity of the Month

2017 has begun which means a whole new semester full of amazing events and activities for your chapter and members!

One great social activity to kick off the new year is having competitive event preparation sessions to help your chapter’s members get ready for competition. You can have business professionals come and judge your performance events. Or have sample tests for your members to study for their objective test. You could make it a fun activity by bringing in special treats or food items to persuade members to attend.
